Social commerce startup Meesho has announced a companywide break from November 4 to 14 for all its employees implementing its ‘Reset and Recharge’ policy. The work break will be after the festive season sale offered by the platform.
“Meesho is going on a company-wide break from November 4-14th. Yes, you read that right. We are going to completely unplug from work — right after our busy and frenetic festive sale season, so that we are back to doing what we love — relaxed and rejuvenated,” the company said in a Twitter post.
Meesho helps small businesses and individuals become sellers on social platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram. The Bengaluru-based startup, founded by Vidit Aatrey and Sanjeev Barnwal in December 2015, competes with firms such as GlowRoad and Shop101.
More and more companies are now focusing on the well being of employees as the pandemic has severely restricted office-goers due to the high risk of infection and COVID-19 induced lockdowns. Nike, Bumble and LinkedIn have also previously given their employees mental health breaks.
