Adda247, the Indian vernacular test-prep platform, has updated its leave policy, to offer unlimited sick leaves to employees recovering from long illnesses, accidents and injuries. The firm has gone ahead and introduced ‘recharge leaves’ too, to allow employees to take a break from work, to rest and relax after working hard on a project or meeting tight deadlines.
That is not all, the Company has also increased the ‘all-purpose leave’.
These measures are a part of Adda247’s efforts to create a positive work environment that promotes employee welfare.
Admitting that employees are expected to be highly productive and agile in the edtech space, which is growing at a fast pace, Anil Nagar, founder & CEO, Adda247 said, “At Adda247, it is our constant endeavour to create an environment where our employees feel valued, supported and cared for. We are committed to building a healthy and inclusive culture for all employees, and the roll-out of the updated leave policy is a step in that direction”.
Neeti Kumar, vice president – HR, Adda247, hopes that these steps will “foster an employee- friendly culture where employees work towards a larger cause and derive work satisfaction”.
Kumar also mentioned how the Company has “renamed the HR function as ‘people enablers’ as that better justifies our objective.
Adda247 delivers online education in 10 vernacular languages, and has played a significant role in the learning journeys of over 50 million students beyond the Indian metros.
In 2021, the Company — founded by Anil Nagar and Saurabh Bansal— managed to raise about $20 million in a Series B funding round led by WestBridge Capital. It also acquired edtech platform, StudyIQ Education recently, to add strategic value to its offering in the UPSC and State PSC segment
