Working More Productively During the Pandemic

When the pandemic was hit globally, the entire movement in productivity went on a toss. There were so many industries that were affected due to this impact. The IT sector was not poorly concerned because of the digital platform’s sudden adaptation or backup plan. “In Fact, the demand for certain projects was getting wider in terms of ideas, resources, developments and so on. The variations in different and better output were vastly visible during this period of time,” said Mr. Tejinder Pal Singh Oberoi, Chairman & Director, Garcia IT Association, Gujarat.

IT – Industry Alterations

The demand for Human Resource professionals and services has risen during the past year. Most IT companies have doubled their HR potential during the past year. In terms of productivity, frequent expert round table conferences with HR, Finance, and Legal were done digitally with around twenty-five members on board virtually. More members started boarding into the Industry with so many projects. Almost all the People who are associated in terms of IT, software are part of this association. The challenges were enormous when there was a sudden adaptation from the physical platform to the digital platform.


The association and its members are always active in their funds and promotions. They travel for their meetings and conferences worldwide. They meet people and authorities tell them about the association and conduct frequent online and offline campaigns to promote these areas, like the campaign in which the association supported ‘Green IT.’ The association used to run the Flagship Awards annually, and they are looking forward to the event this year, which is on the approval list from the official government side. The future growth of the IT-Industry is going to be massive, where the employees will always have an option for working according to their comfortability and work zones. People will start adopting the hybrid way in almost all the sectors of Industry.

Blockchain Technology

Blockchain is a system of recording information that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack, or cheat. A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computer systems on the blockchain. Blockchain Technology is going beyond efficiency and is mainly used in cryptocurrency. Tejinder concluded, “Blockchain technology will play a major role in digital platforms and make the productivity channels easier at the fingertips.”
