The food delivery service Swiggy has announced permanent work-from-anywhere options for a number of roles as part of its “Future of Work” policy.
The company said in a statement on Friday that teams like corporate, central business functions, and technology will work remotely and meet once every three months at base locations for a week.
However, according to a company release, those in partner-facing roles must work from offices from base locations a few days a week. It added, â€œSwiggy believes that the permanent work-from-anywhere policy will act as an enabler for its employees to work towards these goals.â€
The company noted that this decision was taken on the basis of â€œteam 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.â€
Swiggy HR head Girish Menon said, â€œAt 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.â€
Swiggy was among the first companies in the startup ecosystem to provide a flexible working model to employees. Swiggy employees are working from 487 cities in 27 states and four union territories as of today.
