Grameenphone, the digital connectivity partner and a responsible corporate citizen of Bangladesh, has announced a series of initiatives and adopted contingency ways of work in solidarity with the Bangladesh government’s prudent national measures to navigate the looming challenging times and contribute to curbing consequences amidst the global energy crisis.
The state-of-the-art Grameenphone headquarters, the climate-friendly GPHouse will be non-operational every Thursday, and employees will work from home. The digital connectivity partner also runs its operation with an AI-based solution to ensure electricity efficiency throughout its operations all over the country.
Syed Tanvir Husain, Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) of Grameenphone, said, “The world is going through one of the grave energy crises in recent times. This unprecedented long period of high energy prices and the supply shortage exert tremendous pressure on all economies, resulting in consequences in our lives. During these trying times, we have proactively adopted contingency ways of work to curb electricity consumption in solidarity with the Bangladesh government’s diplomatic efforts to navigate the challenges. Our latest operating model, integration of AI and RPA through modernization, has enabled our employees to work from home, ensuring smooth operations for our customers. We also encourage everyone to adopt the habit of cycling, walking, or carpooling to stand by the nation individually, which will translate into long-term impact in reducing carbon footprint.”
The government has been taking several energy-conservation measures to mitigate the power crunch and urged people to cooperate and be economical in energy consumption as the government is forced to carry out load shedding and limit electricity generation with fuel prices continuously increasing globally.
