“Learnt a lot about adapting to change and unexpected circumstances"
As a cashier, Nafisa did not have the option of working from home during lockdowns.
Nafisa says:” My role as the central custodian of petty cash meant that it was not always possible to work from home because my job required being in the office and validating documents to give cash for running the smooth flow of business operations. Making sure the business had cash to enable our vital front line service to carry with as little disruption as possible was a challenge that we overcame, and I am proud that we did our bit. I really appreciate the support and understanding that I received from my dearest colleagues and our management during the lockdown. It’s definitely an experience that I will never forget and we learnt a lot about adapting to change and unexpected circumstances”
