MyntraMyntra is a leading Indian online fashion marketplace. Founded in 2007 by IIT graduates, the brand started out as acustomisation start-up. Myntras mission is to use technology to democratise fashion and lifestyle to help people look good.
THE CHALLENGEKeeping prospective candidates abreast oftherapidly evolving organisationMyntra has transformed rapidly and fashioned itself differently along the way. Their challenge was two-fold, asthey had tostart by reinventing themselves in a dynamic market, and then embark on sharing their story with the world and prospective candidates. It started with reiterating their core; their values, vision and mission. This helped shapetheemployer brand.
When they went back to the drawing board, Myntra made sure the most important stakeholders, their employees, were involved in the process. Focused group discussions andinterviews helped define their identity as an employer.
The brands endeavour was to build a team in line with their culture of diversity in terms of opinion, skills and background. They wanted to attract a new breed of talented people who thrive in a non-hierarchical environment. AtMyntra, innovation, thinking outside the box, and going that extra mile is a way of life and they needed individuals who could leverage phases of uncertaintyand ambiguity
asopportunities to reinvent andlead the organisation through change. Positions spanned across Technology, Supply Chain, Creative, Retail as well as international talent, hence the brand chose to engage withprospective employees through offline as well as digitalinitiatives.
We have been able to establish Myntra as a strong consumer brand because of the collective efforts of our employees who have put in their best at work. In order to continue to deliver exceptional customer experiences it is very important to attract and retain the right kind of talent and having a strong employer brand will help us achieve this.

THE SOLUTIONSocial recruiting became the mantra for MyntraThe idea of building an employer brand is to attract as wellasretain talent. Myntra started with demonstrating who they are and why they are a great place to work byshowcasing values, work culture and cool policies. Thishelped engage the right prospective talent, as well asinstil asense of pride among existing employees.
Social channels were used extensively to attract potentialsvia word-of-mouth, especially across domainsoftechnologyand design.
The brands efforts paid off as existing employees began to feel a sense of purpose. The brand had hoped that employees would be encouraged to uphold the Myntra wayof life, while prospective candidates would be attractedto join the exciting Myntra journey. This is exactlywhat followed.
And it didnt just stop at showcasing what working for Myntra was like. Once a month, as part of a speaker series, a senior leader from the organisation discussed a subject of interest not just with employees but with the community at large andshared insights on Myntras role.
