Connecting India to its dreams

The awards showcased the companies that new-age India wants to work with. Companies that have nailed employer branding, soared over their competitors and became the favourites of the new generation of employees. These companies reflect India’s aspirations, and while they are putting India on the global map, they are also garnering respect from their employees. AmbitionBox has been highlighting this for years through its platform.


Alongside this, AmbitionBox also aimed to connect good talent with companies. Wrong hiring decisions can cost India’s leading companies billions of dollars annually, and it has become critical to ensure that suitable candidates know about the right companies and their cultures. To that end, a positive employer brand can help companies overcome competition and win the war for talent.

The road ahead

India sees thousands of new companies and leading startups every year. Companies that are rapidly growing, and touching millions of lives. And at the same time, there is a new generation of workers, who mirror the aspirations of the companies. AmbitionBox has been working on connecting the two - good companies with good talent - since its inception. The platform received 1.2 crores visits in June, surpassing its global competitors to become the No 1 platform in India for company reviews and salary insights. AmbitionBox has grown 100 per cent YoY over the last five years with respect to monthly active users. The team aims to establish itself as a resource for employers looking to brand themselves.


AmbitionBox aims to help more job-seekers know about the best companies in India. And with the upward trajectory AmbitionBox and India Inc. have experienced, these goals may just be closer than they appear.
