India’s leading on-demand delivery platform with a tech-first approach, Swiggy has announced its permanent work from anywhere policy for most of its roles.
The policy applies to the majority of its employees. The company said in the statement that under the new policy, the corporate, central business functions and technology teams will continue to work remotely.
However, the team will connect once every quarter at their base location for a week to promote in-person bonding. The employees in partner-facing roles are however required to work from the office for a few days a week from their base locations.
Girish Menon, HR Head at Swiggy said, “Our focus is to enable employees with as much flexibility in their work life within the contours of their job. We observed global and local talent trends while also having our ears to the ground listening to the pulse of employees, managers, and leaders.”
“This led us to introduce work from anywhere as a permanent option for employees giving them the convenience of flexible cycles of work and leisure wherever they may be”, Girish Menon said.
Girish Menon further said, “We will continue to actively invest in reimagining employee experience, innovations in work, and work experience to build a truly remote-first organization.”
The decision was taken based on “team needs and feedback from several managers and employees, who vouched for the flexibility and increased productivity working from home has given them in the last two years”.
Swiggy has a presence in 500 cities across India, and partnerships with hundreds of thousands of restaurants. The company has an employee base of over 5000, and a 2 lakh+ strong independent fleet of Delivery Executives.
The company is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, disability status, or any other characteristic protected by the law.
