Vuram ranks as one of India’s Top 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2021 by the Great Place to Work® Institute. Over the last three years, Vuram has been participating in the mid-size segment. The organization has been continuously growing despite the pandemic and has advanced to compete in the ‘India’s Best Companies to Work For 2021’ category where India’s top 100 workplaces are recognized.
Every year, the Great Place to Work® Institute, India thoroughly assesses workplace cultures of organizations pan India on several metrics. This year, Great Place to Work evaluated more than 850 companies across more than 20 industries; over 24 lakh employees participated in the assessment.
Venkatesh Ramarathinam, CEO, Vuram, stated, “From being a Great Mid-sized Workplace, this year, we have progressed to getting recognized as one of India’s best companies to work for. Such a recognition, that too, during the year of a pandemic is of special significance: it is a testament to what each of us does every single day to make Vuram the happiest and best nourishing workplace.”
He added, “Vuram exists for and because of its people. People drive the organization forward. We are happy that we were able to maintain, if not enhance the workplace culture, even during a crisis like the current one; I appreciate everyone for their contribution in establishing a supportive and nourishing work environment. I thank the Great Place to Work team for rolling out such a massive initiative and performing a fair and neutral evaluation.”
Vuram adopts collective decision-making so that the pulse of Vuramites (Vuram’s employees) align with the company’s initiatives. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the company has announced several programs to ease and support the prolonged working from home arrangement. It has to be noted that all of Vuram’s teams have been working from home since March 2020; the empathetic approach aims at enabling Vuramites physically, monetarily, and mentally.
Suresh Kumar C, Director, People team, commented on the recognition, saying, “Being transparent and fair has helped us grow as an organization. Our culture of trusting people has played a strong role in keeping us together and being passionate about work. Besides assuming various responsibilities, Vuramites were proactive in identifying and suggesting ideas that can improve life in this virtual world. Together, we hope to keep evolving as a better organization and adhere to our principles.”
Extending the philosophy of nurturing its own people, Vuram lays significant emphasis on giving back to the community. Against the light of the pandemic, the organization is spearheading an empathetic approach to helping people in need through several initiatives like OxygenHall, a platform to track Oxygen availability across India and Upturn fund, an internal fund to help people in the community who require financial support.
