Working from home has increased the number of hours that Safeducate boss gets in a day

Divya Jain, Founder and CEO ofhas regular workouts as a key part of her day. This involves running for about six or seven kilometres on a treadmill followed by asessions with her trainer.

She told ET Panache, ‘I’ve also discovered liveon Instagram and follow short YouTube videos. My go-to has actually been boxing, which really has been helping let off the steam and energy.’

Jain has a dedicatedspace that helps her get into the zone. ‘The go-to app has been of-course, Zoom to do teamthrough the day and Google sheets to share work as well as updates,’ she said.

Working and working out at home have been interesting for the Safeducate boss. ‘I have been working more than ever as have my teams. With the lock-down, we have no Sundays so we are working through the week, nights and days. In terms of productivity, we have been very focussed and the mindset of meeting in person to get work done has completely changed. I do feel this will transcend the lockdown and help us create more flexible teams,’ Jain said.

Sharing her learning, Jain said, ‘has definitely increased the number of hours that I get in a day. Normally, I feel you are so busy rushing and running between meetings and venues, the time to think gets compromised. I love that every morning I wake up with six impossible things to do and to be fair by evening, we have at-least one operationalised.’
