HR Post Covid
Claroty: We’re looking forward to a “happy medium” after Covid-19
Establishing a healthy work/life balance is essential for the cybersecurity firm as it returns to normal life
Ever since Covid-19 started disrupting the world, companies have questioned how to care for their employees as they balance work and life from their homes. “Overall we’re looking forward to a “happy medium” of being together as coworkers and being at home with our loved ones,” explained Claroty’s Natalie Katester Boimer. “So we will have a hybrid model in which employees can work both from home and the office, depending on government restrictions.”It appears that the pandemic might finally be coming to its end, and so companies like Claroty need to establish their next steps. The company has joined CTech to share what’s next and how it might return to normal.
On the other hand, the boundaries between work and home life have blurred, making it difficult for people to disconnect when they need to, which is why we encourage employees to be flexible with their schedules. Additionally, remote work does not suit everyone; there are people who prefer to continue to work from the offices. As a result, we keep our Tel Aviv office open while adhering to government restrictions.What are the two major challenges you are coping with these days? Building and maintaining our company culture, rapidly growing our global headcount, and onboarding new employees – all while everyone is fully remote. To cope with these challenges, we’ve committed to a people-first culture in which we put our employees first in everything we do and in every decision we make. We also make the onboarding process not just an HR responsibility, but rather a wider team effort that everyone participates in, which helps employees feel welcome and connected to their teams from day one. Are you actively recruiting? If so, what is the process and where can the applicants find you? Yes, we hired over 80 new employees in 2020 and have plans to hire 100 more in 2021. Our current open roles are listed on our Careers page. Which changes forced upon you by the circumstances will stay in place after Covid-19 is over, and which are you most eager to revert back to normal? There is definitely a mix of things. Overall we’re looking forward to a “happy medium” of being together as coworkers and being at home with our loved ones, so we will have a hybrid model in which employees can work both from home and the office, depending on government restrictions. It’s also very important that our employees can maintain a healthy work-life balance, so allowing for flexible schedules is important for that as well.
