Zomato’s been expanding its influence in the food business. From starting Whitelabel, which is a software product for restaurants, to having its own delivery service, Zomato has been taking on uncharted territory over the past year. But when it launched Zomato Book, its restaurant booking service, and announced that it wanted “to ensure that we are the first in the market”, Dineout wasn’t pleased.
Zomato has raised $60m in a fresh round of funding led by Temasek Holdings. Temasek Holdings is an investment company owned by the Government of Singapore. Incorporated in 1974, Temasek owns and manages a net portfolio of S$266 billion, mainly in Singapore and Asia. Existing investor Vy Capital also participated in this round.
Zomato, like all major companies, conducts regular surveys to get a sense of the pulse of its workforce – to see if employees are content, and discover what their grievances are. On this survey was an innocuous question – On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely are you to refer a friend at Zomato?
The average score the company received was 3.5.
Organizations take great care in building up a solid reputation over the years with great products, impeccable service and fostering an inclusive and harmonious work culture. However, at times, the actions of one or a few employees can cause immeasurable damage to the entire company. We profile employees who their company probably regrets hiring.
