We are a preferred employer because we have evolved all policies with a new appeal
Created with the objective of empowering Indian travelers with instant booking and comprehensive choices, MakeMyTrip has been amongst the most sought after companies by potential employees. Apart from running programs and processes, HR’s KRA is to design events, communication, and stories to keep the culture vibrant. As a guiding philosophy, MakeMyTrip welcomes people with new ideas and a desire to make a difference. While on the one hand, they empower and encourage employees, on the other, it prepares them to take risks. This has helped maintain a fine balance between freedom to experiment and accountability.
The organization has institutionalized initiatives that have proven to be effective in attracting and retaining talent. So, be it the open door policies providing easy access to leadership, meritocracy and a healthy disrespect for hierarchy, fun@workdaily, and innovations like Hackathons, Ideathons, CustoMORE, and Halla Bol awards – all of these have helped the organization build a sense of camaraderie, and encourages its employee to constantly push the edges of their job. At MakeMyTrip, fun is serious business, which reduces monotony in the job and creates a high performance atmosphere that is least stressful, apolitical, and builds co-worker friendship.
The exuberance and liveliness of the workplace is incomparable. The initiatives ranging from leadership development, compensation & benefit programs, hiring, talent building practices, CSR etc., have been designed to appeal to and attract the Gen Y. “More than a 1,000 Trippers don’t come only to work, but to enjoy the freedom to think and follow their dreams, and that is what makes MMT a great place to belong to,” reasons Deep Kalra, Founder & CEO, MakeMyTrip.
