We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.We offer traditional monetary workplace benefits such as insurance and travel allowance. We also offer several other non-monetary workplace benefits like flexible work hours, the ability to work remotely, and no rigid limit on annual paid leave. We are a young and growing start-up making us the ideal ground for team members to experiment, take on dynamic roles, and grow with us. We focus on happiness, output, and quality of work.
Going forward, projects include looking at the migration experience and mental health of workers and how this is affected by pairing them with experienced workers from their region (through a novel ‘buddy system’), how volunteering helps develop soft skills that affect employment outcomes among college students, unlocking female labor through rural training centers, and how an effective grievance redressal system for workers affects their job outcomes.
