Swiggy Work-from-anywhere Policy: Online food ordering and delivery platform Swiggy on Friday announced a permanent work-from-anywhere policy for the majority of its employees. With this, the company has extended its Future of Work Policy, according to a release issued by the company.
“The decision was arrived at 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,” the release further said.
Under the policy, corporate, central business functions and technology teams will continue to work remotely. Whereas to promote in-person bonding, they have to mobilize once every quarter for a week at their base location.
However, those who work in partner-facing positions must spend a few days each week in the office from their base locations.
“Our focus was 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 from employees, managers and leaders. This led us to introducing ‘work from anywhere’ as a permanent option for employees giving them the convenience of flexible cycles of work and leisure wherever they may be,” said Girish Menon, HR head, Swiggy.
“We will continue to actively invest in reimagining employee experience, innovations in work and workplace experience to build a truly remote-first organization,” he added.
Currently, Swiggsters are working out of 487 cities in 27 States and four Union Territories across the country.
