Bangalore, 21 September 2022: Meesho, India’s fastest-growing internet commerce company, has announced an 11-day companywide break from October 22, 2022 to November 1, 2022 for the second year in a row. Called Reset and Recharge, this industry-first initiative will allow Meeshoites to completely unplug from work and prioritize their mental well-being after the busy festive sale period.

With a deep focus on holistic well-being of employees, the move is a reflection of Meesho’s continued commitment towards building a people-centric workplace, one that truly looks after 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 show the way for other companies to adopt similar employee-first practices.

Ashish Kumar Singh, Chief Human Resources Officer, Meesho, said, “Building a great company culture requires one to acknowledge 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. 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 augment our employee centricity and industry-leading retention rates.”

Meesho has been at the forefront of several industry-first and forward-looking policies such as a boundaryless workplace model, infinite 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.

Meesho’s comprehensive MeeCARE programme, designed to boost holistic well-being for Meeshoites 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.

Meesho was recently recognised by xto10x’s “Startups Employees Love” in the categories of ‘People Excellence’ and ‘Best for Women’.
