A Smart Move By The CEO Of An Indian Startup Made Its 100 Employees 'Parents' In A Single Day

WittyFeed has always been a startup that has stood out from the troupe of startup industry in India. This new trend of 'starting up' has been a nationwide or rather worldwide drift. But not everyone who has given into this mania was able to sustain it with triumphant results. 

Within two years, this startup has reached unfathomable heights, setting new benchmarks and changing the virality drive of the world, and the credit goes to the leaders and the team.

But the undeniable credit for the uniqueness and the jovial aura this place carries, goes to the CEO, Vinay Singhal. Everyday here, holds within itself something unaccustomed and untried, that makes its employees want to come in everyday because nobody knows what the day will unwrap. 

But, hey! let's not get deviated from the point of discussion. Today, I'm going to write about this one anecdote that will stun you! 

Stay tuned and read on to know more!

Just another day

Just another day

It was just another day for everyone at WittyFeed, writing stories, making posters, creating videos and everything else that they do. But amidst the persuasion of their everyday jobs, WittyFeedians had forgotten something. But it wasn't very late to really make them realize what it was, that they'd let go off!

RELATED STORIES

"Green Shock", say what?

The CEO, Mr. Vinay Singhal was contemplating something unique, on a Saturday! Something divergent that all others had gone astray about.


During a normal weekly meeting on the very same Saturday evening, the employees of WittyFeed were in for a "Green Shock" when they were asked to bring in a plant each along with them to the office on Monday. They had no clue why!

They ALL came back with plants on Monday!

They ALL came back with plants on Monday!

Back home, the employees received a video from Mr. Singhal himself, which moved them. It was a 10-minute long video wherein he had again appealed, very politely, to each and every member of the WittyFeed family to carry plants with them on the following Monday morning. Only this time, he had shared the agenda behind it too with them. 

The Agenda

The Agenda

Nearly everyone working at WittyFeed is a young 20 something kid (as CEO himself says it), this is the time in their lives where they need to learn about responsibility, work ethics, priorities and discover who they are as human beings.  

Ignorance is not bliss. 

Ignorance is not bliss. 

WittyFeedians were further asked to think of those small plants, they'd bought in as their own lives and imagine what would they do to save it? What would they do to save their world that was coming crashing down?

Envisage the possibilities. 

Envisage the possibilities. 

They were further, solicited to comprehend that the plant, each one of them had carried with themselves was the beginning of a new life. A new life, they were responsible for and entitled to. Whether it lived or it died, it was all depended on them and only them. It's growth, sickness and health would be their liability. 

Character changing process. 

Character changing process. 

The sole motive behind this inventiveness was to determine how everyone perceived the entire process and ultimately that would determine what kind of a person one was, in and out. Their attitude towards a little plant was going to be a character changing process for everyone in the long run. Reckon how people tend to change after getting married or having kids? The most despicable and spiteful person turns into a glorified soul. 


You get my point?

A true leader, you may say.

A true leader, you may say.

"We'd not expected in our wildest dreams that each and every member of the WittyFeed family would come with a plant on April 24. ALL of them. The sight was rejoicing. I mean do see you those happy faces?" CEO shared. You should've seen Mr. CEO, he was probably the happiest man on Earth for that moment. 

This initiative was not only to save mother Earth and keep her clean and green, but for each and everyone present at WittyFeed as well. Each one of them had gained a new perspective towards their work . Syndicating an idea that was nowhere related to their everyday jobs, with their minds and hearts and inspiring them to implement a similar pattern in every aspect of their lives, was surely something not very easy to do. 

Vinay went out of his way and came up with something so innovative and heart-warming that it touched the hearts of everyone present. 

They all are parents now!

They all are parents now!

It's a well entrenched actuality that a plant is a living, breathing entity and from today onwards, it is the responsibility of each one of them to be the parent to those lil' munchkins they took in today! And oh! you should've seen the greenery and the positive vibes around their workplace today. From today onwards, they're in a transition for being a totally #GreenWorkplace and they also intend on making mother Earth a #GreenEarth. 


But they cannot do it alone, can they? WittyFeed family would like to plea to all of you to just plant one sapling today or take responsibility of any one plant around you and see how it'll remodel you as a person and help the mother Earth save her life. 


Thank you!
