2015 has been a year of big deals for Groupon India. From getting a new brand identity and rebranding as Nearbuy to landing around $16 Mn from Sequoia Capital. But the biggest deal they landed was moving into a new office in Gurgaon, albeit 50 times bigger than their humble abode in Saket! Located on the Golf Course Road near Sun City, and somewhat distanced from the office traffic rush zooming into Gurgaon every second, Nearbuy’s new office is just the place where work meets fun everyday.
The new office can accomodate 600 people, has 32 meeting/conference rooms, with every person basking in the luxury of about 84 sq/ft of personal space. That however, does not stop the founders from sitting with their employees, eating with them, or trying a hand at table tennis!
Adding fun to these space is the dash of colours- from the brick red walls, to colored glass panels, to the green coloured carpets, to pink cushions, to sofas and loungers in all different hues and designs.
We would agree work is more fun with cheery pink cushions and red glass walls!
And how can fun be complete without food? Ola, behold the cafeteria where the entire office staff gorges on the daily five-spread lunch buffet/evening snacks to replenish their hungry souls.
One look at this American diner style cafe and we wouldn’t mind a bite too! Not to mention the bountiful supply of seasonal fruits,caffeine, tea, chocolate milk, badam milk and soup packets also on the menu!
And in case you have had a bit too much, there’s always table tennis, Playstation, or dear old board games to lull you out of your food induced slumber!
But if you would rather watch TV or read a book to keep awake, you can head off to the TV lounge or maybe just be content with the Apple TV, which happens to be on all screens!
Still not relaxed? Maybe the numerous beanbags, lazyboys and couches through the entire office are just what you need to get that brain firing again!
All in all, the new Nearbuy office is just the right mix of fun and energy for an awesome work at day. Wouldn’t be wrong to say that working here would be one unbeatable deal!
