Noise, India’s leading connected lifestyle tech brand, today announced the opening of its new office space headquartered in Gurugram, India. Nestled at the heart of the city, the new office space resonates with the vibe of the brand and is a part of the strategic cultural push that Noise has made to boost the well-being of its employees. Spread over 20,000 sq.ft. the new office houses the existing 200+ employees and the future workforce, as the brand is actively hiring across teams & functions. In the last two quarters, the company has seen significant growth in its employee strength and is expecting it to further increase by 80% by the end of 2022.
With the major workforce being millennials and Gen Z, the brand aims at creating an open, progressive, and new-age workplace environment, paving the way for fresh and new-age ideas to flow in. It provides interesting facilities, including recreational areas for employees to de-stress and unwind through the day. The new Noise workspace is equipped with a gaming room, infra-red room for rejuvenation, a reading room, desk treadmills & balancing boards, and trainers for fitness, yoga, and meditation. With an aim to help employees address health challenges associated with a corporate lifestyle, Noise is making resources that could help attain a healthy lifestyle, easily accessible to its employees. Employees are free to use these services as per their convenience and need.
Amit Khatri, Co-Founder, Noise on moving to a new office said, “Ensuring the well-being of our employees is the cornerstone of our operations. An average person spends 90,000 hours of their lives working, that is a very long time to spend being miserable. We want to make the place, where people spend the second most hours of their lives, to be as healthy and progressive as it could be. To meet the evolving needs of our people, which have changed drastically in the post-pandemic era, we are excited to launch our new India office
Our new office is designed to foster a relaxed environment where employees can collaborate creatively, be productive, and lead a healthy lifestyle, all at the same place. The strategic cultural reinforcement will enable us to drive the sense of true ownership and growth at the organization level.”
In addition to creating a healthy and robust workplace, Noise has also revamped its strategy to announce new policies for the workforce. The new “No questions asked” policy is an addition to the company’s leave policy. As a provision under the “No Questions Asked” policy, employees can avail of leaves for up to 4 weeks in a financial year without the requirement of specifying the reason. Additionally, Noise has included LGBTQIA+ & Live-in partners in its Parental Leave policy, and has introduced a Leave Sharing policy in the organization to promote a culture of Unity & Trust.
Satyam Joon Head of HR, Noise said “It is a conscious decision, at Noise, to build policy frameworks that employees can customize to best suit their needs. We don’t believe in the one size fits all approach as it only causes friction and frustration in the long run. In fact, we believe that flexibility in work design helps foster a culture of trust and security in the workplace and leads to creating a more engaged workforce. We are hopeful that the new policies and focus will encourage employees to be independent in making decisions that are best for them, and at the same time foster a culture of well-being, empowering them to have the same faith in the company as we have in them.”
As Noise gets ready to expand its footprint to new markets, the brand aims at gradually building a passionate and strong workforce of Noisemakers through its progressive workspace, policies, and culture.
