Since the start of the pandemic, QX’s top priority has been to safeguard the welfare and well-being of our 1,750 employees. We have taken decisive action to protect our employees by:
We have enacted a World-Class Business Continuity Planning (BCP) process to support all clients, employees, and families and ensure continued service delivery.
Our BCP process is based on four foundations:
Managing infrastructure to ensure business continuity.
Managing the convenience of employees by the provision of a comfortable work environment and easily accessible processes.
Managing compliance with legislative, regulatory, & data protection compliances.
We are continuously improving the systems and processes by feedback mechanisms.
QX received a 100% C-SAT score in 2020 from most of our clients, with most others rating us over 90%.
As a Business continuity measure against the effect of the pandemic, since March 2020, QX adopted a complete Work From Home arrangement till Dec 2020. As the pandemic situation changes, we have revised our plan that QX will follow in 2021 for our client service delivery and business continuity.
QX has employed a Safety First approach, considering the prevailing situation and night curfews. We have decided to extend WFH to protect our employees from the risk of Coronavirus infection.
As a part of this plan, we have rolled out flexible working options for our employees, which range from:
We have considered client concerns, employee preferences, technical & operations issues affecting work, data protection risks, employee performance & motivation to select the right option for each employee.
We have well-defined strategies in place for Staff Welfare, Process & Compliance, and Physical to Digital Security to ensure that our employees’ safety and productivity are assured.
Note: As of April 2021, QX has extended work from home until 30 September 2021, keeping the safety well-being of our employees in mind.
QX has undertaken initiatives to provide care, support, and access to COVID-19 vaccines for over 1,750 eligible employees and their families in India, UK, and North America. We conducted our first COVID-19 vaccination drive in Ahmedabad on June 9 for all employees, and their family members via a partnership with top-tier hospitals in India. Our next drives are scheduled w/c 15 June in Mumbai, Noida and Vadodara.
We continue to provide mental health and wellbeing support to all QX employees. Our EAP gives our leadership team, line managers and all QX staff the support and guidance they need. Support is available 24/7, and QX staff can access a range of emotional and practical support including:
There are continuing restrictions to avoid travel, customer visits, and physical gathering until the situation improves across our locations. Our COVID Response Team continues to monitor the status around the clock.
