Owing to this, the hotel chain also featured on LinkedIn India's list of Top 10 companies that attract the best talent. The hospitality industry as a whole has witnessed an eight-year high this year, registering such phenomenal growth for the first time since 2008. With OYO's standardised, affordable accommodation, the industry's growth has been fueled further. Since its inception, the company has established a network of over 7000 hotels across India. In terms of global expansion, OYO has also set its footprint in Nepal and Malaysia. "OYO's pioneering business model and approach changed how hotels were managed and booked in India.

Today OYO is the country's largest provider of affordable hotel stays. We launched our first hotel in Kathmandu last month and will on-board 100 properties there by the end of this year," said Ritesh Agarwal, Founder and CEO, OYO.
