An e-commerce enablement company GoKwik has appointed Chetna Gogia Chief Human Resources Officer.
"It's the season of joy, and Chetna Gogia is joining us in our mission to spread the cheer in the D2C world as the Chief Human Resources Officer," shared GoKwik on LinkedIn.
Prior to joining GoKwik, Chetna was leading the entire HR function for BYJU’s acquired Aakash EduTech Private Ltd (AEPL). She brings in expertise in talent management processes to attract, develop, and retain high-quality talent and more. In her almost two decades of experience, she has collaborated with the leadership team to formulate key engagement strategies and solutions. Chetna has also worked with companies like PolicyBazaar and PayU in the past.
In her new role at GoKwik, Chetna is expected to bring a vision to evolve the remote work culture and build a sanctuary where employees thrive professionally and personally as well.
Chirag Taneja, Co-founder, and CEO, GoKwik, said, “Remote working continues to evolve as it is expansively becoming the new normal across the world. GoKwik has a workforce that comes from more than 40 cities and towns from all over India. We want to build an organisational culture that values flexibility, liberty and growth simultaneously."
Chetna will play a key role in taking this vision ahead.
Commenting on the appointment, Chetna said, "I am excitedly looking forward to contributing to this thriving organization and further strengthening the remote culture as is done by global tech companies such as GitLab or Shopify. We plan to take remote working to the next level and give the employees the best of all worlds."
"We want them to have the flexibility of working in the office, at home, or by the seaside. Moreover, we will further aim to create an organisational culture where employees’ professional commitments don’t overpower their personal ones and offer people the balance, and liberty they desire, in this new normal setup," she added.
With currently 100 employees, GoKwik has been growing rapidly. It is reported to have growth of 80% quarter to quarter. GoKwik also recently raised INR 112 Cr in a Series A round led by Sequoia Capital India.
How Chetna drives a remote-first organisational culture at GoKwik and sets new benchmarks for tech startups is to look forward to.
