All the way on the other side of the world, a voice from another Telenor’s Open Mind programme agrees.
Myo Min Htet, here at his home, is part of Telenor Myanmar Open Mind’s first-ever candidate pool.
“As my job duties are online-based, it is in many ways beneficial for me to work from home. Here, I have my family to support me, and I save time and money by not having to commute to the office,” says Myo Min Htet.
Currently working with the Sustainability team in Telenor Myanmar, Htet, who is born with a congenital physical defect, emphasises that freedom of choice is what makes him an avid supporter of the flexible way of work.
“I do prefer face-to-face communication over virtual meetings, but sometimes it is much more efficient and convenient to attend meetings and to perform my assignments from home. What I hope to see out of this whole COVID-19 situation and our new flexible workstyle is that we all get better at using video technologies to keep close to colleagues, family, and friends.”
Both Ihme and Bakke concur with Htet.
“To spend time physically with the people I love is what I cherish most in life, so I am very eager to return, not back to normal, but to the new normal,” says Ihme.
