Burnout and anxiety are two common issues gravely affecting today’s workforce. 

To prioritize mental health and work-life balance, Meesho, an e-commerce company, has announced an 11-day company-wide break called ‘Reset and Recharge’. It will allow Meeshoites to take off starting from October 22 to November 1 and unwind during the festive season. 

The company had implemented this policy last year as well to help their employees unplug from work and prioritize their mental well-being. 

Because, like Sanjeev Barnwal, Co-founder and CTO of Meesho tweeted, ‘Mental health is important’.

In a statement by Meesho, Ashish Kumar Singh, Chief Human Resources Officer, Meesho, explained the thought process behind this initiative. He 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…Such progressive policies have helped augment our employee centricity and industry-leading retention rates.”

Meesho has, in the past, implemented other similar initiatives like the boundaryless workplace model, infinite wellness leave, and a 30-week gender-neutral parental leave, among others.
