In Zulekha’s own words
How would you describe a typical day at work?
Filled with excitement and with plenty of varied things to do. My day at Rivigo is generally about interacting with people – be it people who are looking to work with us, or our team who are helping us scale heights. Each day offers new opportunities to learn, explore and contribute.
How would you describe your experience here?
Being one of the initial employees in the organisation, in fact, the first member in the People Team, I feel fortunate to have been able to contribute to Rivigo’s success story. The complete gamut of HR kept me so engaged and engrossed that I didn’t realize how soon we grew manifold. Each passing day instils in me a greater sense of belongingness to this organization. I truly believe that it’s my Rivigo and I AM RIVIGO.

What is the most exciting thing about working at Rivigo?
It’s the joy of contributing to a bigger cause. It’s about improving the lives of thousands of truck drivers and their families. The high levels of ownership and bias for action omnipresent at Rivigo also excites me. It is rejuvenating to work with highly driven, energetic and passionate people. Working with the best, with relentless rigour and persistence has helped me discover my best. The impact we create is right in front of our eyes to see and it gives a sense of satisfaction when you look back at the amount of positive work you have been able to do towards building the organization.
