Bhavish Aggarwal, co-founder, and CEO of Ola, made an announcement on social media that pleased his followers. The Ola CEO revealed information about his newest employee. Bhavish Aggarwal introduced a stray dog that the company had adopted. The dog, named ‘Bijlee,’ which translates to ‘electricity,’ is the newest employee at Ola Electric.
Bhavish Aggarwal uploaded the post on the social networking platform X (formerly Twitter). It introduced Bijlee as a new employee and it also included a photo of the dog as well as her official Ola Electric ID card. The ID card displayed Bijlee’s employment code as ‘440 V,’ which signifies normal voltage used in electrical systems.
Her blood group is also listed as ‘PAW +ve’ on her ID card. The card also states that ‘Slack’ is Bijlee’s preferred medium of contact with her coworkers. Finally, the emergency contact caught everyone’s attention when it stated “BA’s Office,” referring to the Ola CEO.
The post quickly went popular and viral on social media, with X people showering the dog with affection. The post received over 1,800 likes and over a hundred retweets. “Awesome Pawsome!” said one user. Another one said, “Bijlee Nailed it.”
This isn’t the first time the company co-founder has published dog-related messages at work. Aggarwal took to Twitter in February of this year to share a photo of three dogs napping on sofas inside the Ola office, captioned “mornings at the office.” Many users praised Ola for having a pet-friendly workplace, with one writing, “Probably the best thing about Ola.”
He posted a video of himself playing with a puppy inside the office last year. “The best way to do meetings,” he captioned it.
Apart from that, Ola Electric is making headlines for its fresh launch. The buying window for the Ola S1 Air was just revealed by the company.
