Homegrown social commerce platform Meesho, in another innovative move for its employees, has announced a company-wide 11-day break from October 22 to November 1 this year to help employees rejuvenate their mental health. Called Reset and Recharge, this industry-first initiative will allow Meesho employees to “completely unplug from work and prioritize their mental well-being” after the busy festive sales period.
This is the second year in a row that Misho has announced the move, which the company says, “reflects our continued commitment to creating a people-centric workplace that truly cares about its employees – our greatest asset”.
At a time when burnout and anxiety have emerged as key concerns for today’s workforce, Reset and Recharge will lead the way for other companies to adopt similar employee-first practices, it said in a statement released Wednesday.
“Building a great company culture requires one to recognize that work-life balance, rest and rejuvenation are key to employee well-being. With Reset and Recharge, we continue to push the envelope and redefine conventional workplace norms,” says Ashish Kumar Singh, Mysore. Chief Human Resource Officer.
“Employees can choose to decompress however they want – whether it’s spending time with near and dear ones, traveling or picking up a new hobby. Such progressive policies have helped us drive employee centricity and industry-leading retention rates.”
Meesho has been at the forefront of several industry-first and pioneering policies such as the unlimited workplace model, unlimited wellness leave, 30-week gender-neutral parental leave and 30-day gender reassignment leave. The Reset and Recharge policy amplifies the company’s concerted efforts towards creating a dynamic workplace built on the pillars of employee flexibility and empowerment.
In February, Misho announced a first-of-its-kind borderless workplace model. With this model, the firm empowered its employees to work from home, office or anywhere they chose. With a focus on seamless employee experience, Meesho has empowered its workforce with real-time and virtual collaboration tools.
Providing opportunities for teams to even meet and collaborate in person, the company also introduced initiatives such as trips to attend quarterly summits and annual work in locations such as Goa. To support working parents, Meesho announced sponsoring daycare facilities for employees with children below six years of age. It can also be obtained during an official visit to Meesho’s head office in Bangalore.
Meesho said its comprehensive MeeCARE program, designed to enhance the overall well-being of the company’s employees and their families, enables employees to balance their professional and personal goals. MeeCARE covers a wide spectrum of wellness initiatives through a combination of policies, benefits and other interventions, the company said in its statement.
Misho was recently recognized by xto10x’s “Startups Employees Love” in the ‘People Excellence’ and ‘Best for Women’ categories.
