Jazz, one of the largest telecom companies in Pakistan has revealed its new luxurious Digital Office in Lahore.
The company is currently using the old Warid offices on a temporary basis. Later on, the company plans to move to a permanent location adjacent to the building of its current working space.
From the looks of it, the company has creatively established a working space that can be productive and a relaxing place at the same time. Apart from the colorful decor, it also houses a gymnasium for its employs to help them stay fit.
Jazz revamped its whole company earlier this year after the finalization of its merger with Warid. In a mega event, the company unveiled its Digital Headquarters in Islamabad under the philosophy of digital Pakistan.
Though we appreciate the company which is spending millions to create a better working environment for its employees, we wonder how can it cry over the lack of profits and still spend an exuberant amount of money on luxurious offices.
Jazz also faced a mega scandal this year when the staff of Warid franchises started protesting. Apparently, thousands of people became unemployed as the company closed down almost 300 Warid franchises.
Recently, Jazz also acquired a 4G spectrum license where it spent $295 million and additional 10% tax ($29.5 million). Telecom sector has been pleading with the government to reduce taxes on this sector which are ultimately paid by the consumers but at the same time is showing off the prowess of its riches.
Telenor Pakistan revealed in May 2017 that this is the first time in many years that the company is seeing profits in its financials. Still, the company is halfway done in the construction of its new corporate headquarters costing the company over $70 million.
Hopefully, the companies are spending such huge amount on HR training as well to ensure better services to its customers. Previously, the misery of two Jazz customers exposed flaws in the biometric system so we can hope that the company is also spending to create a truly digital environment.
