“Now having completed 8 years with this company, I surely can say that life in Xoxoday is full of adventure, challenges, achievements, and celebration – in short full of zest. I have learned loads, developed myself and got inspired in every step of this journey. I reflect back to see where I started from, to where I am and where I will be - exciting”

Brainstorm, try, test, and execute

It is good to see that with every nudge to the young minds of Xoxoday, comes a fresh idea that is worth brainstorming and exploring for a better product offering. With a culture of open sharing, transparent communication, allowing and fostering innovation Xoxoday has become one of the best product based companies in Bangalore. Forums are introduced from time to time to encourage out of the box thinking, and each successful implementation is rewarded. We test these ideas in house and on seeing success take a confident plunge to offer it to our clients.

It's been more than a year now since I joined Xoxoday and it feels like I stepped into a rollercoaster ride - taking turns I never expected but enjoyed almost every moment of this ride. It is here that I get to work with the best saas company and most wonderful Design team. We were a bunch of designers when I started, and our team expanded eventually. We have a crazy creative Design Head, from whom I have learned a lot about design and much more Gyan on all the life and things around. I quite love my workplace and enjoy spending most of my hours in a day. We have lovely colourful little workspaces to suit your mood, and you can opt to sit and work wherever you feel you are most productive. As a team, other than working together, we indulge in great brainstorming sessions, attend workshops and enjoy those fun Friday evenings. The collaboration with cross-functional teams, product managers, engineers are knowledgeable and meaningful. I believe all this has helped me learn a lot and also given me great exposure to working on a product from scratch. One of the things that I value a lot is the level of accessibility and approachability all the founders have maintained. We have regular town halls where the leadership team walks us through our plans, giving insight on our current standing and overall business scenario. The HR team is focused on global engagement of the employees, keeping them motivated, planning and having fun as well health and wellbeing sessions. In a nutshell, so far, so good. It’s nice to be a part of something so impactful and meaningful.”

I am pleased to see an open approach that fosters trust between the employees and the management.

We care, we share

One of the ways that we thank the society is by contributing back to its prosperity. Be it a visit to an orphanage, donating blood or clothes or having support camps for relief work due to some natural calamity – we consider each of this as an opportunity to make us more human and show that in our actions.

We do plan to have a well-defined charter that helps us to have focused attention on a few areas close to our heart and that resonate well with Xoxoday’s philosophy of self-sustenance - children education and providing vocational training on livelihood is one such area. 

Balance work and fun

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! – and we surely would not want that. Be it indoor games like foosball or intercompany cricket tournament, jamming for a music session or having a joke party – we do it all. We believe that fun time and serious work can go hand in hand.

Here's a small video on how we engaged our employees while working from home.

Celebrations around festivals and other occasions, personal milestones such as birthdays, marriage, long service etc. Bring all of us together. It gets all colourful, loud with cheering and fun. We attempt to bring out all that hidden talent in our employees by opting for a wide range of fun activities such as poetry, photography, cooking skills etc. To celebrate company success, join in for an annual team outing. Feel special, enjoy your day - Birthday, marriage, or Long service – use the celebration points to cheer yourself. Get your loved ones to office, show them where you work and enjoy the fun and frolic during the annual family day.

Thanks to our in-house product – Empuls amid the lockdown or remote working, we still succeed in maintaining a good touch time with the teams. Virtual competitions and events bring all of us together. While some actively participate, some of us love to comment on others. Bottom line, if it's fun at Xoxoday, we all are into it.
