GBL Access

We use research to find that sweet spot where worker wellbeing and business interests intersect. Our shared vision of making this a norm brings us all together.

In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and the evolving global situation, all our employees are mandatorily working from home and there is a blanket travel ban across the organization. Employees can seek free health consultations for themselves and their families through Ekincare. We’re also exploring digital team-building activities to stay motivated and connected with each other. We are happy to share our insights on what’s working and what’s not with anyone who reaches out. We have asked all our employees to prioritize their mental and physical health above everything else at this time. That means deadlines have been relaxed, and more frequent check-ins with managers are being organised--to balance organizational needs related to productivity and performance with the long-term wellbeing of the GBL family.

We’re happy to make open source our internal resource with a validated list of therapists and counsellors (many of whom are offering services for free or at a subsidized rate) in India.

Last, there are some urgent hiring needs which you can find below. Through all this uncertainty and turbulence, we are pushing forward with new Covid-related research in addition to our current projects.
