Meesho, employee wellbeing, mental wellbeing, break.

Called 'Reset and Recharge', the move is "a reflection of Meesho’s continued commitment to building a people-centric workplace," the company said in a statement.

For the second year in a row, e-commerce platform Meesho has announced an 11-day companywide break from 22 October 2022 to 1 November 2022.

Called 'Reset and Recharge', this initiative will allow Meeshoites (the group's employees) to completely unplug from work and prioritise their mental wellbeing following the busy festive sale period.

According to the group's statement, "with a deep focus on holistic wellbeing of employees, the move is a reflection of Meesho’s continued commitment towards building a people-centric workplace." Additionally, it shared that 'Reset and Recharge' will "show the way for other companies" to adopt similar employee-first practices in a time when burnout and anxiety have emerged as key concerns for today’s workforce.

Ashish Kumar Singh, Chief Human Resources Officer, Meesho, commented: “Building a great company culture requires one to acknowledge that work-life balance, rest, and rejuvenation are key to employee wellbeing.

"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, travelling, or picking up a new hobby. Such progressive policies have helped augment our employee centricity and industry-leading retention rates.”

Prior to this, Meesho has also introduced policies such as a boundaryless workplace model, infinite wellness leave, 30-week gender-neutral parental leave, and 30-day gender reassignment leave. 

In the same vein, Meesho’s MeeCARE programme, designed to boost holistic wellbeing for Meeshoites and their families, covers a wide spectrum of wellness initiatives through a combination of policies, benefits, and other interventions. This, the company said, enables employees to balance their professional and personal goals.
