Prasidha Menon, Global Head of Communications, OYO Hotels & Homes
“OYOpreneurs are the backbone of our company's success. We always strive to create an employee-first work culture and the approach is gender-blind. OYO fosters a culture that is inclusive and embraces gender diversity. Leaders at OYO promote gender diverse team structures across businesses and levels. This is true for my team across the globe as well which includes a great mix of talented and seasoned communication professionals. I believe that in today's day and age if one is focused, determined and owns the right set of skills for the job or industry they want to explore, they can chart a bright future for themselves, irrespective of gender.
At OYO, we are offering quality living spaces at affordable prices in the best locations around the world. And we are making this possible by leveraging innovative technology. Technology is deeply embedded in OYO's DNA. Our able team of engineers and data scientists enables us in taking ownership of the end-to-end customer experience, right from the search and booking process to in-room amenities, service-delivery and check-out. We map the customer journey to the smallest detail and provide moments of delight at each step.
I think women have the ability and innate power to do well in not just this industry but any industry or space, it is all about taking ownership of your own life and the choices you want to make and believing in yourself unabashedly. I think we, as women often undermine our own abilities and potential, and as a woman, I will always remind all my female colleagues and friends to take charge of their life, and question the societal norms, if and when needed and to follow their heart. We, as women have the ability to multitask, we are decision-makers, we have clarity of thought, we are able to empathize, but what we often lack is the confidence to do things the way we want, and stand up for our rights, whether it is a raise, a promotion or sometimes just having the confidence to present a counter opinion. So celebrate your strengths! More power to all the women who are turning the tide.”
