OYO Hotels & Homes; the fastest-growing chain of leased and franchised hotels, homes and spaces; secured a place on the list of Linkedin's top 10 companies to work for in India. In today's time, it is extremely challenging to retain talented employees for long, provided they have a lot of options before them. Perhaps, there is something interesting that makes employees stick to the brand. This year, OYO ranked third on the LinkedIn’s top companies where Indians want to work. The startup, founded by Ritesh Agarwal, has revealed the secret behind why professionals are inclined towards joining the company and staying longer.
First of all, OYO gives employees vast exposure and allow them to be their own boss, offering them the opportunity to grow, the company said. It does not promote a 9-5 work culture and there is no grumpy machines keeping an eye on employees walk-in and walk-out timings.
Individuals here take ownership of every single task in their hands. The passion their leaders inculcate is the driving force for the every-level employees to excel in their profession. Employees not just stick to the brand but inherit the passion to take OYO to greater heights every day.
"A company led by the most passionate leaders from different backgrounds, having a knack of creating the best product in the world and bringing a sense of togetherness is what makes OYO's employee culture stand out," said Dinesh Ramamurthi, Chief Human Resouce Officer at OYO.
At OYO, leaders at all levels prefer consultations and consensus to command and control, he said.
