In just a day, we all were asked to change the way we work and live. In a week, we got accustomed to our new way of working. Maybe in a few months, our companies might become growth positive while working remotely.
Today we are cribbing about not being able to step out of our houses. Not being able to work towards meeting our targets and deadlines, We are the missing the chaos we call ‘Life’.
To be honest, I never thought that I would miss my commute to the office, I often used to bicker about. I never thought I would miss the constructive arguments I had with my teammates at Xeno. Covid-19 is not only a pandemic taking a toll on thousands of lives but is also affecting the emotional well-being of those who are healthy, socially distant & quarantined.
Restoring ‘normalcy’ in these adverse circumstances is a worry for businesses. Especially startups in which the team is closely knit together. Suddenly, the people you are accustomed to working with on a daily basis are now working with you over video calls.
At Xeno, keeping the happiness curve of the team upwards is the core of our culture. A happy team is a strong team. And we're working together to survive, learn and even win as ONE. Aiming to combat COVID-19 with a wide smile on our faces with a vision in our mind and beats in our hearts.
You would wonder how that smile is still alive. At Xeno, we ensure the mental sanctity of our team keeps intact. And this is how we do it:
Yes, the times are tough. Yes, we’re oblivious to what the future holds and are shrouded by doubts and uncertainty; but what keeps us going is the unanimous belief in our mission with our culture as our backbone acting as a ray of happiness. Our culture id our silver lining that unites us as a team and everyone associated with us. We are working within the four walls of our houses while staying focused, motivated and most importantly, sane. And we aim to hit bull’s eye in the future and beyond.
So, all you Hustlers, hang in there! Work hard, put on a smile and get going.
Until next time!
