Indian e-commerce Flipkart set up a new 8.3 lakh sq ft campus in Embassy Tech Village in Bengaluru as part of its Better together theme.
The new campus has a seating capacity of over 7,300 people.
Flipkart has around 7,600 employees, including warehouse, logistics team. About 6,800 employees would operate out of the new campus in Bengaluru.
“We had taken this decision to consolidate our many offices across Bengaluru to one location. This was largely aimed at improving operational efficiency and to also benefit from the resulting synergy between various teams and functions,” Flipkart Head of Marketplace Anil Goteti told Pixr8 News.
He added that the teams have already moved to the new location and started operating out of the campus. Goteti, however, declined to comment on the investment made for the facility.
He explained that by co-locating all its business units into one new, agile work environment, the company aims to create a unified office that “supports cooperation, collaboration, and flexibility”.
“We believe centralisation will promote increased productivity and engagement through efficient ways of working,” he added.
“This is a state-of-the-art campus and includes facilities like indoor recreation rooms with VR games, simulators, and a golf simulator as well as outdoor recreation space. We have also included mothers rooms and daycare facility to ensure worry-free work environment for our women employees,” he said.
Goteti said the company also took into consideration the views and ideas given by employees during the planning process of the campus.
