On-demand delivery platform Swiggy has extended its Future of Work policy and announced a permanent work-from-anywhere for majority of roles.
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 company said in a statement on Friday.
Under the policy, the corporate, central business functions and technology teams will continue to work remotely and converge once every quarter at their base location for a week to promote in-person bonding.
Employees in partner-facing roles are however required to work from the office for a few days a week from their base locations.
At present, Swiggsters are working out of 487 cities in 27 States and 4 UTs across the country.
“At the core of our Future of Work is flexibility. 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 at Swiggy.
“We will continue to actively invest in reimagining employee experience, innovations in work and workplace experience to build a truly remote-first organisation.”
Since 2020, Swiggy was among the first few organisations in the startup space to operate on a flexible working model for employees based on the nature of their work.
