In a year that’s been nothing short of extraordinary, if there’s one thing that has helped us connect and create a sense of community and shared experiences, it’s the power of storytelling. Through inspiring, powerful, moving and heartwarming conversations, BYJUites have opened up for us a glimpse into their professional journeys, their motivations, the life at BYJU’S, and the reason why the learning revolution has become their mission.
As we near the end of 2021, we are taking a look back at this treasure trove of stories. What can be a better way to learn, draw inspiration from, and even find relatability than with fellow BYJUites who navigated work and life, just as we did, through these unique times.
Here’s the best of #LifeAtByjus:

Holistic well-being means going beyond physical health and taking into account other factors — emotional, mental and social — that impact the health and wellness of BYJUites. At BYJU’S, we are taking conscious steps to evaluate our work practices and policies and imbibe certain mindful practices. This includes mental health initiatives like Let’s Talk, encouraging regular check-ins and creating a culture of recognition.
With people continuing to work remotely, unhealthy eating habits have seeped into the lifestyle. Especially during a busy day at work, it’s quite likely that you have been missing out on meals or binging on junk food. This can cause nutritional imbalance and halt your productivity. But fret not, with a few simple changes to your daily routine, you can balance working from home and staying healthy.
And that’s a wrap! With this, we close another exciting year full of learning, innovation, celebration, and of course, some of the most incredible stories. To quote JK Rowling, “There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.”
Our appetite is whetted. We cannot wait to hear and tell your stories!
