KARACHI, 22 AUGUST, 2015: Lamudi.pk hosted a bloggers meet up in Karachi on 20th August, 2015 at Neco’s Cafe. This was a great session where the bloggers interacted with Lamudi’s Country Director, Saad Arshed. The core purpose of the session was to take the bloggers on board about Lamudi’s exclusive success over its two years of presence in Pakistan and let them know to its Google inspired work culture. Saad gave a presentation to the bloggers about Lamudi’s success and its cherished yielding systems.
The accomplishments included Lamudi’s launch of Android and iOS apps in June 2014, which have been downloaded over 535,000 times since. Other milestones achieved, included its launch of a property magazine, conducting real estate empowerment programs and lastly the launch of its new developments section on the website.
Saad also shed light on Lamudi’s employee-centric work culture, which according to him is the ingredient behind Lamudi’s growth and makes it different from more traditional work places.
