Meesho announces versatile workplace model

Internet commerce company Meesho  has announced a boundaryless workplace model under which employees can choose to work from home, office or any other location of their choice.

Based on employee demand, the company will be setting up satellite offices at locations with higher talent density. This will enable its workforce with real-time and virtual collaboration tools, providing them ample opportunities to even meet and collaborate in-person.

The company is also introducing initiatives like trips to attend quarterly summits and an annual workation in locations like Goa. To support working parents, Meesho will sponsor day care facilities for employees with children below 6 years of age. This can also be availed during official travels to Meesho’s head office in Bangalore.

Ashish Kumar Singh, Chief Human Resources Officer, Meesho said that the company is driven by the mantra to build a people-centric workplace and it has always ensured employees are at the core of everything the company does. 

“We have been championing many industry-first initiatives that have redefined conventional workplace norms and this new policy is a step in that direction. We have studied multiple future of work models to arrive at this novel boundaryless approach. In the future, this will also give talent across the globe an opportunity to build for Bharat with Meesho.”, he added.

While the company founded in 2015, will remain headquartered in Bangalore and will look to set up satellite offices across the country based on talent demand and density. It will also encourage calendarised in-person quarterly connections to brainstorm, reflect and review goals while building team camaraderie. Virtual boot camps and meet and greet sessions will help new joinees build a community culture and strong sense of connection with their entire team.

It will be interesting to see how the company, which is backed by Facebook and Softbank, navigate in the new workspace arena and kick-start their growth journey.
