Vodafone India Recognised as a Best Company to Work For in 2014

By July 1st, 2014 AT 9:10 PM

Vodafone India has been recognised as a Best Company to Work for in the study conducted by The Economic Times and Great Place to Work Institute. Vodafone Over 600 organizations spanning across 20 industries had participated in this study. Google tops the 100 company list followed by Intel, Marriot, American Express and SAP Labs. Vodafone India Ltd. is the 18th brand and the only other telecommunications player which made into the list is Orange Business Services (Equant Solutions India Pvt. Ltd.).

The Great Place to Work Institute uses two means for the study:

  1. A comprehensive questionnaire to assess organizations’ employee perception
  2. People management practices followed by the organization

The study appreciates Vodafone’s ‘Onboarder Coaching’ for its new joiners which helps the onboarders and the onboardees to successfully integrate themselves with each other. On a general note,

These organisations are characterised by a high degree of pride in employees, friendly work environment, integrity of their leadership team, and a perception that their managers are competent. These organisations do not discriminate between employees on the basis of race, gender, age or religion and caste. They seem to participate in the community with 88 per cent of employees of the top 100 best workplaces saying that they feel good about the ways they contribute to society.

It is certainly great to see Vodafone figuring out in the top 20 best companies list. At the same time we were a little surprised by the absence of other big brands like India’s No. 1 telecom service provider Airtel and Idea Cellular.

2014 has certainly been a good year for telecom sector employees – Videocon Telecom offers best in class salary increments going up to 38% to its employees. After being a year of price hikes, let’s hope it becomes a great year for customers too!

It is right to say that ! Although we have our own desi ones like Airtel (Express yourself), !dea (still continue to “no ullu banaving), mtnl (hai to sahi hai), bsnl (connecting India) etc. no one could stand up and fact the test in any mode ! Forget about the “company to work for”, even the customers still like to have a vodafone connection, even though their charges/tariffs are more in comparison. Call drops too are minimum at least in Mumbai Also here Human interface including IVRs are very much limited. Almost all needs can be addressed through simple USSD… Read more »
