COVID-19 Diaries| A/B Testing

Yep, it is happening.

Finally!

My sister’s office carried out this exercise two weeks ago, so it is safe to say that my company is quite reluctant to give WFH.

A/B testing is an analytical term. I am using it losely here. The employee headcount will be divided in two groups – A and B. One group will work from home while the other comes to office.

Of course, it brings up a very genuine question – how do we divide groups?

People who are already doing WFH and have been doing that even before Corona outbreak, had very invaluable inputs.

  • Seat them alternately
  • Seat people with a gap of two empty desks
  • Utilize vacant desks 
  • I don’t want to come on Thursday, prior commmitments
  • I cannot come on Friday, priot commmitments

My manager didn’t get to talk for 25 minutes, during which, all sorts of suggestions were given.

I don’t understand what the fuss is about.

I walked out. There was more talk and finally the groups were divided based on the very first suggestion – seat them alternately.

Is Pune effectively on WFH now?
