Fairwork Project Finds Flipkart Best Indian Startup To Work For; Ola, Uber Worst

The Fairwork Project, part of the Oxford Internet Institute, piloted the ranking system in India recently

The study was focussed around 12 major Indian internet companies

Ola, Uber, and Foodpanda (acquired by Ola) scored the lowest in the rankings

"Ambur Iyyappa, the startup's first full-time employee, had lost his job as a delivery boy with a courier company when he joined Flipkart in 2009. This 'human ERP' went on to script extraordinary innings, using his innate talent for organisation to create what became the backbone of Flipkart's first order management system."

Could it have been Flipkart's work culture that inspired Iyyappa to go the extra mile?
