Before joining Microsoft in September 2016, Vamsi had a two-year stint at Flipkart as the campus head.
The share buyback plan could be the largest such programme till date in the Indian start-up sector.
The company believes that only happy employees can be more productive and in sync with company goals.
Flipkart’s former COO, Nitin Seth, who was recently fired from the company, has apparently slapped a legal notice on the company.
As per LinkedIn, none of the traditional companies in the FMCG, durable and auto sector feature in the list of most sought-after employers in India.
Vamsi has joined Microsoft as the head of India University Relations. He spent two years at Flipkart.
Looking to expand its online business in India, Alibaba has recently been in talks to hire Flipkart’s director-HR.
Among other Indian companies, Infosys, TCS (Tata Consultancy Services), Air India, Flipkart, Wipro, Reliance Industries, Tata Motors, ONGC, L&T, Mahindra & Mahindra, Aditya Birla Group, Indian Oil, BHEL (Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd.), Snapdeal, HCL and NPTC also feature in the list.
Various global and local surveys recently revealed a growing focus around workforce expansion plans but whether organisations are actually ready to absorb all that talent, is yet to be seen!
This follows a similar movement at Flipkart when its HR Head, Mekin Maheshwari stepped down and moved to an advisory role.
Maheshwari had joined Flipkart in September 2009 as head of Engineering, post which he was appointed as the head of two verticals – PayZippy and eBooks.
The company hopes to create 20 lakh jobs, most of which will be in the logistics and warehousing sector.
