Recently, the Zomato has fired around three percent if its workforce . There have been quite many layoffs. In this time, if there are any job openings, quite enthusiasm can be seen.
Deepinder Goyal, the CEO of Zomato posted on his linked in account that there were 800 positions that were vacant for the people to grab .This situation would have created an occasion of joy and enthusiasm .But the CEO, ended up getting heavily trolled. While writing the description about the job positions, he posted quite a peculiar requirement. He went overboard while announcing about the job positions for each position. In the responsibilities section, he posted that ” The job is a 24/7 job, and the traditional mindset of work life balance will not work “.
People’s Views On The Zomato’s Requirements.
This was a mistake of his. Since the vacancy post gained over 5000 likes. People were not at all happy .They were not amused .Many people expressed their disappointment and many even expressed their grievances in the comment section.
A LinkedIn user stated,” Do we get /employees get the same benefit as the CEO? and the same pay scale? No? Then yeah, that will not work.” Another stated ,” Why don’t you hire a donkey, that will work 24/7 without any work life balance ?”The user is a seasoned HR professional .
An another Linked In user stated,” Are you serious ? The very fact that you are openly marketing this toxic JD on your LinkedIn feed shows exactly what is wrong with your company and why people should not be applying there.” ” Treat employees like humans and not slaves.” The user stating these was a psychologist.
The lack of the work-life balance among the employees is being forgotten now a days. They are either covered up or are ignored. A report in 2019 reported that the International Labour Organization , Indian employees work 48 hours in a week. This was the average data . This is what that makes our country the most workaholic of all the Asian countries.
