Great Place to Work

For two consecutive years ZEEL has been certified as a ‘Great Place to Work’. In 2017, ZEEL ranked amongst Top 100 Best Companies To Work For and amongst Best in Media and Entertainment Industry, in a study conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute and The Economic Times. These honours acknowledge our commitment to create a sustainable and enriching work environment for our employees. Through our policies and initiatives, we continuously strive to improve employee engagement and satisfaction.

Value Orientation

Our values are the cornerstone for every effort, big or small. The seven value framework is designed to help our employees achieve excellence both on a professional and personal level. To ensure that these values are ingrained in each employee, value orientation sessions are conducted at regular intervals. It helps reinstate our core beliefs and ensures that these values seep into the DNA of every member of our organisation.

Learning, Growing, Performing

Our learning and development programs are structured to sharpen our employees’ skillset and help them grow as an individual and professional. Through open discussions between employees and their managers, the needs of the organisation as well as an individual are aligned to achieve a common goal. These initiatives ensure that ZEEL maintains its position as the preferred employer which is the key to sustaining its status as an entertainment powerhouse. Some of the initiatives during FY18 were:

  • Leadership development training at the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDII)
  • Skill building workshops which included sessions with accomplished script writers and producers, known as Story Baithaks, to understand nuances of the creative process
  • Seminars and workshops focused on digital marketing, managerial excellence and functional trainings were conducted to help employees augment their expertise

Embracing Open Communication

To ensure that our efforts are in synergy and serve the larger interests of the organisation, we place high value on open discussions. These manifest in the form of regular interactions with the senior management where employees can ask questions and voice their opinions. The two-way communication platform encourages the employees to share their views, concerns, suggestions and ideas with the leadership team and obtain their guidance and inputs on the same. While employees get a holistic overview of company’s performance and strategy, management gets the employee feedback on critical issues.

Similarly, SAMWAD, a monthly one-on-one discussion between the employee and the manager, promotes regular open conversations about the progress on the goals laid down, feedback on individual performance and identifying learning initiatives required to achieve goals. These interactions help in ensuring continuous alignment with the stated annual goals.

3,200+ employees from all over the world gathered under one roof to commemorate completion of 25 years and witness the unveiling of our new, brand ideology, Extraordinary Together.

Rewarding commendable performances

Our employees are intrinsic to our success and recognising and rewarding achievers is an integral part of our work ethics. Our employee recognition program ZEELOMPICS, celebrates exceptional performers, to encourage the spirit of excellence in different roles and recognize the positive behaviours having strong impact on results. The five rings recognize excellence for programming initiatives, revenue enhancement, content innovation, cost efficiency and managers who exhibit exemplary team-management skills.
