To say the least, I’ve been fairly busy during the last month, and a week more to be exact. As I mentioned in a recent post, I’ve joined a new organization, which I’ve also added in the Places I Go section on the right side bar of this blog.
Several developments are on hand, and the best part is that the client we are serving is actually very happy with the way things are progressing here at base Karachi, it gives them the confidence that more can be done. This is something I was hoping for, and the team was trying its best to give it all we’ve got.
Just to recap on this, it has been just 6 weeks now that the operation has started, from scratch I might add, and developing a level of satisfaction and trust with an organization that’s been running for over 10 years in the US and certainly not an easy task. But I’m glad that it has happened.
Ramadan starts here on Friday, and surely that means a shift from the norm, including work hours. At first, there was a bit of concern raised internally on how we’d make up for lost time. But before we floated the idea over to our client, we finalized here what we’d want to do, just to make sure we continue providing whatever support we can, in the most efficient way. We all know how sleep takes over when we fast, but that’s just the start, traffic harassment being the next and biggest challenge that we can think of.
So it was decided and finalized yesterday. A work from home solution was sold, and we’re all set for it. This will be one test of strength and ability to commit for a whole month (minimum) to provide a proof of concept. If it works, there is a good possibility of having such an alternative working for a long term period, whenever required. Additionally, we can also utilize such skills that may be available from home, but not available at the office space. As I said, it’s going to be one big test, and we’re hoping we’ll succeed beyond our expectations.
Here’s hoping for the best…
