dunnhumby India launches flexible work plan that works for you


A working environment that works for you, your commitments and your interests outside of work.

Gurgaon, India – dunnhumby, the global leader in customer data science, has rolled out a new, pioneering flexible work plan. As per this plan dunnhumby India will offer a range of benefits such as flexi-shifts, flexi-place and flexi-part time arrangements including an enhanced paternity leave.

The new plan from dunnhumby covers a variety of benefits that can cater to different situations and needs of an employee.

  • Flex place working or blended work day – on the same day one can work part hours in office and part hours as work from home or any convenient remote location.
  • Flex shift working or shift timing – working outside the defined schedule to accommodate other responsibilities
  • Flex part time working – opportunity to vary the number of total hours or total work days. For instance, one can work limited hours in day or limited days in week
  • Paternity Leave – four weeks of paternity leave, which is well ahead of industry norms of 5-10 days  

A recent Deloitte research report reveals that flexible work arrangements are among the top three items on younger employees’ wish lists, both for millennials and gen Z, when choosing a company. The survey also showed highly flexible working arrangements enhance the degree of employee loyalty. Not only do millennials appreciate not being tied to strict hours or locations, they also value the trust their employers demonstrate in granting that flexibility.

Affirming this current sentiment, Neha Gupta, Head HR, dunnhumby India says, “This is a significant step forward as a business to acknowledge and encourage our diverse and vibrant workforce that has unique needs and is going through different life stages. Our people need agility and trust, and this new exciting plan gives that and more.”

With a growing workforce touching close to 600, based in Gurgaon, dunnhumby India plans to grow by 20% in the next couple of years. The company has recognised the increasing need to create an agile workforce with a culture based on output, where objectives and goals are being met and exceeded, and not on when and where you work.

Manoj Madhusudanan, Head of dunnhumby India adds, “We want to achieve a culture where performance is assessed on output and not on the number of hours spent in the office. Sitting in an office does not directly translate into productivity. The aim is to make life easier and simpler for our people and improve each and everyone’s happiness quotient.”
