MX Player recognized as a "Great Place to Work"

The streaming entertainment platform is certified in the small and mid-size organizations category


MUMBAI: Rising to the top in a short span of 15 months, entertainment streaming platform MX Player has been recognized as a “Great Place to Work”. The young brand, that went live with its OTT offering in February 2019, has been certified in the small and mid-size organizations category, in the survey conducted by Great Place to Work Institute, India.

With a strength of 300 employees across its Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Beijing offices and a participation of 87 per cent, MX Player’s organizational strengths were reflected as pride responsibility and empowerment – mirroring its work environment of camaraderie, respect and a culture of going over and beyond the call of duty whilst on the job.

“The continued success of MX Player is attributed to its employees and their passion”, said MX Player HR head Anjani B Kuumar. He added: “We aim to create a holistic environment while offering well-rounded opportunities to our employees that is reflected in the results of the survey. Staying true to our proposition and delivering ‘everytainment’ to the audiences while having a happy set of employees is something, we truly take pride in.”

The Great Place to Work® assessment is considered the gold standard in the space of workplace culture globally and evaluates an organisation based on its employee feedback and people practices impacting the entire lifecycle of employees. The institute evaluates more than 1000 organisations every year in India and only the organisations meeting the criteria based on the rigorous assessment get certified.”

Prasenjit Bhattacharya, CEO, Great Place to Work® Institute, India said, “The Great Place to Work® Certification indicates that there is a high level of trust, pride and camaraderie in the workplace culture. We see a high trust culture normally translates to sustained business performance.”
