Think swanky offices in Hyderabad, and Google and Facebook’s Indian headquarters come to mind. But things are quickly moving up on office swag meter for the pearl city. After showcasing offices of startups Pegasystems and the Government’s T-Hub, enter GrabOn, a Hyderabad based startup, that offers coupons and deals, whose new office could give any startup from the ‘Valley a run for their office decor $$$.
“GrabOn works on the philosophy that happier people are more innovative & productive. The new office is equipped to allow spaces & infrastructure to unleash the creativity of the employees with elements of comfort & happy zones.”, Ashok Reddy, Grabon founder & CxO, tells OfficeChai.
Spread over 12,000 Sqft and costing around $250k, the office features a space with distinctive architecture and progressive design elements. Just when thoughts of VC money being used for lavishness pop up in our mind, Reddy throws this at us. “We are also the only office of this kind, belonging to a self-funded e-commerce company.”
Bringing in the Silicon Valley flavor, the brand new office is equipped with Japanese style sleeping pods, access to gym, showers and gaming for GrabOn’s 50 odd employees.
There’s a cafetaria and breakout area that offers free snacks to the employees.
The place offers comfortable soft seating zone, scribble ideas on a wall and a lot of flexibility.
With rooms this jazzy, office meetings could be something to look forward to.
It also boasts of many zones like Brainstorming, Finance, Turbo, Executive, Execution and ‘Free Zone’
There are also “Unwind Zones” with dim lights and funky art work, to provide the perfect break away from work, and yet inspire creativity.
The office walls are doodled with artwork depicting the company journey so far.
It is business and pleasure all rolled into one at GrabOn, and its office has just raised the bar for others in the city.
