Employees’ expectations have changed since the quarantine and companies are slowly starting to let their people work longer from any corner of the world. With travel in the doldrums, countries, noticing this at least slightly brighter vein of tourism, are luring such ‘digital nomads’ with exclusive offers and, experts say, are shaping a new work-and-travel culture, business daily "Verslo Žinios" is writing.
We already in June gave permission for all its employees to work from home without limits even after the quarantine, as of September will give its employees even more freedom to choose where to work – whether at the company’s offices in Vilnius, Kaunas or Šiauliai, from home in Lithuania, or from any country of the world.
Now in its 18th year in business, the Lithuanian and German-owned software development company NFQ, in response to its employees’ desires and the remote work practices tried out by all the company’s employees during the quarantine, has adopted a liberal work-from-home model: with the end of the quarantine, all NFQ employees will be able to choose for themselves where to work – at home or at the NFQ offices in Vilnius, Kaunas and Šiauliai – and the number of work-from-home days will not be limited.
Responding to the problem of offline retailing being halted due to the general quarantine, NFQ as the company with the biggest e-commerce project development experience in Lithuania, are offering help for businesses impacted by the crisis. Mobilizing its expert forces, at NFQ we are ready to help retailers who have not deployed e-commerce solutions yet to launch a sales channel right away and quickly optimize their operations.
