Meesho announces 11-day companywide break for employees to 'completely unplug from work'

Meesho announces 11-day companywide break for employees to completely unplug from work

New Delhi: In a bid to prioritize the mental health of its employees, e-commerce platform Meesho has announced an 11-day "reset and recharge" break for the second year in a row. The break will start after the festive season, from October 22 to November 1. The company said that this industry-first initiative will allow "Meeshoites to completely unplug from work and prioritize their mental well-being after the busy festive sale period".

Founder and CTO Sanjeev Barnwal made the announcement on Twitter, highlighting that a work-life balance was paramount to good mental health.

"We've announced an 11-day company-wide break for a second consecutive year! Keeping the upcoming festive season & the significance of work-life balance in mind, Meeshoites will take some much-needed time off to Reset & Recharge from October 22 to November 1," he said.

Meesho founder and CEO Vidit Aatrey in a tweet said that even astronauts need breaks and so do folks working on 'moonshot missions' at the company.

Commenting on Aatrey's post, Meesho in a tweet said: "An annual break bang in the middle of the festive season. That's how we roll."

The company said that the 11-day leave is a reflection of its continued commitment to 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, it said, 'reset and recharge' will show the way for other companies to adopt similar employee-first practices.

Meesho was recently recognised by xto10x's "Startups Employees Love" in the categories of 'People Excellence' and 'Best for Women', the company said.

Meesho had earlier announced a "boundaryless" workplace model, infinite wellness leave, 30-week gender-neutral parental leave as well as 30-day gender reassignment leave.
