Gozoop, an Independent Indian Digital Agency has been recognized among India's Top 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2015 by The Great Places to Work Study in association with The Economic Times. This year, 708 companies were thoroughly evaluated by ‘Great Places To Work’ through intensive surveys, personal interviews, cross examination and personal visits across the participating companies.
Bansi Raja, Happiness Officer of Gozoop, said, “From day 1, it’s always been about building a great team and to achieve that, building a positive work culture was instrumental. In an industry with dearth of good talent, it is extremely important to nurture a unique culture that drives people to work every morning.”
“Sustaining and building a happy & progressive work culture has rewarded us with the lowest attrition within the industry. I feel proud and humbled by the recognition given to us by Great Places To Work.” she added.
A few other interesting out-of-the-box practices followed at Gozoop include Random Surprises like cupcake indulgence, where every big or small occasion is celebrated together; 1SmallStep, an initiative targeted at creating social change through random acts of kindness. They believe that growth should be both personal & professional; GZ Icons, where inspiring figures like Mir Ranjan Negi conduct motivating workshops for all Gozoopers; Monthly Townhalls, ensuring complete transparency from the top down as well as across verticals and one of their most engraved practise of sending personal hand-written letters from the CEO to the parents of the top performing Gozoopers to express gratitude for having a wonderful team.
Gozoop has grown exponentially over the past few years and staying true to their culture and beliefs in the face of geographic expansion has been a challenge. With more than 150 digital intrapreneurs, Gozoop understands the power of a happy and motivated work force. A culture of happiness and work satisfaction is encouraged from the top down. Gozoop firmly believes in hiring character over talent. Those hired for good character, will always show great leadership, ability to adapt to changing realities and most importantly, immense belongingness by putting the company’s success first. Gozoop believes that these individuals deliver more by character than by talent.
Rohan Bhansali, Founding Director of Gozoop, said, “Gozoop was founded with the aim of building a company with a great work culture, one where employees are happy and find meaning in what they do. I am humbled that our dream has been realised and acknowledged. It's a matter of pride that Gozoop has marked its place as the youngest company on the Top 100 list.” For Gozoop, this milestone is just the beginning. The road ahead is full of opportunities and they believe that when you have a strong and motivated team, anything is possible.
