“ It means a full, hands-on education in Business, Design, People, Survival, Philosophy, Humour......and Life!!!! While you're busy solving the waste problem, you unknowingly just learn all this along the way.. Dude, its intense!!! "
"Working at Daily Dump presents new challenges everyday. I constantly get motivated to look at problems from various perspectives and learn that arriving at the 'right' solution requires constant iterations"
"I love nature and talking to people. At Daily Dump, I am able to fulfill both these needs. It makes me feel that I am not working only for monetary gains, but for something that has a larger impact on the world. Everyday I spend some time in the office garden and find it really therapeutic"
"I really like working for Daily Dump because the company is helping clean up our country. I like the people working here. I have myself started segregating waste better after working here and have learnt many things since I joined. I am able to use softwares like Tally and CRM which I never thought I'd be able to one day"
"Whenever one or the other customer appreciates the composting process and shares their joy, the whole feeling of "little drops make the mighty ocean" hits and I feel happy that I am part of the ocean."
"Working with Daily Dump offers me a variety of lenses to view life around. The team, the work and what we try to do together makes everyday interesting, challenging and fun. It's not just work, it is an extension of who I am now".
"It's about learning to deal with all kinds of situations, perceptions, behaviour and conditioning - both in the world outside and even more so within. Working here is about joining the dots and closing the loop, it feels like putting a finger on the pulse of palpable change and being a part of making it happen"
What it means to work for Daily Dump - "I've always believed that every small action makes a difference. It may not change the world, but it makes a difference. And that's the principle that Daily Dump works on too. And so I felt right at home when I started working here. It's a bonus that the people are great to work with too!"
Roots, shoots & seeds
The world of work is changing. Organisations are being re-defined. Our space is also experimenting
with new ways of engaging with each other and with our vision.
Some of us have our roots in the space, we hang on to see the long term growth of this space.
There are also the shoots - those who are new, waiting to see if they will grow here or move elsewhere.
And then there are the seeds, the result of maturing in our space, young people who learn here and then go out and grow their roots elsewhere.
