Work-From-Home is here to stay and requires reliable logistics
The pandemic has forced companies to abruptly adopt a work-from-home setup and has affected office-workers, especially the HR and IT departments of companies who are now expected to support employees who are working from home. As the most widely used provider for work-from-home logistics, Transportify has a unique early vantage point to the evolution of the work setup as the Philippine economy emerges from the pandemic. The company’s deputy country director, Noel Abelardo, predicts that most companies will adopt a hybrid setup wherein employees will work from home on some days and come to the office on other days within the same week.
Abelardo says that “a hybrid setup allows companies and employees to get the best of both worlds. For employees, the work-from-home aspect will provide more flexibility and quality-time with family while some days in the office will encourage and cultivate professional relationships with colleagues. From a company’s perspective, allowing employees to work-from-home has arguably become an expectation that can no longer be withheld for roles that can be done remotely. However, maintaining a strong company culture is just as important.” Abelardo adds that “although companies now spend on logistics to deliver equipment, they [companies] are also able to save on leased office space.”
Thousands of Transportify drivers are now traversing the entire Luzon island and Cebu every day, delivering IT equipment and furniture on behalf of companies to support the work from home needs of their employees. The drivers are usually fulfilling one of the following delivery legs: (a) delivering equipment to new or existing staff, (b) retrieving equipment from departing staff and (c) moving equipment between office locations or equipment hubs.
Transportify expects the demand for its work-from-home logistics to grow even as companies adopt a hybrid work model because delivery of work from home equipment would still be a requirement under a hybrid setup. Furthermore, Transportify’s focus on business and enterprise clients makes it the ideal delivery partner for work-from-home logistics because the company enables HR and IT teams with the following capabilities:
