Content Creator, the name itself sounds like the most boring job. A bubble where it is you, google and your laptop. For me, at GM, it has been a completely different story. I am Sakina Nayani working remotely since 2018.
When nobody offered work from home, GM did. He believes in a team who can own the brand and be the support behind it. Credentials matter more than demographics. He wanted to shift the paradigm and skip the whole corporate environment; we were different even before the pandemic happened. We are always connected during office hours and we keep communication professional. With the creative job descriptions that we all have in the team by working from home we all get plenty of personal space which helps us in producing top notch deliverables for the company.
However, all this comfort comes at a cost for sure. To keep the team spirits up, we regroup at the end of the week to talk, discuss and chill. That is how we function. Working remotely can easily make you lethargic and tardy. It can cause delays in making deadlines and severely affect your motivation. But let’s see if the pros outweigh the cons.
