“Great work is an outcome of good health; good health is not secondary to great work,” wrote Goyal. The CEO shared how the company has been encouraging physical and mental wellness for its staff by providing a gym at the Gurugram headquarters, an in-house team of mental health experts and a generous leave policy.

The ‘paradigm shift’ in the senior team also includes a team of trainers, nutritionists and wellbeing counsellors. Employees can avail customised meal plans to track macro and micro nutrient intake, weight and strength training, yoga, boxing and more, at both beginners and pro levels.

Goyal added that the company is dedicated to transforming the way people think about work and fostering a healthy and fulfilling professional environment.

Goyal also revealed his own fitness journey which helped him reduce 15 kgs. Sharing two before-and-after pictures from 2019 and 2023, he explained that his focus was on consistency.

“Going forward, we are going to invest heartily behind the wellbeing of our employees, our delivery partners and our restaurant partners,” concluded Goyal.
