Bengaluru-based e-commerce company Meesho has rolled out a new unlimited wellness leave policy. The initiative, part of the company’s ‘MeeCARE’ program, is aimed at improving employees’ well-being.
What is it: The new policy allows employees to avail up to 365 days of paid leaves in case of a critical illness that requires frequent hospitalisation. This is also applicable in case a family member is sick or when an employee wishes to pursue an individual goal.
Key details: The leave will be unpaid in case of non-medical reasons. In case of personal illness, the employee will receive their entire salary. In case a family member is sick, a salary of up to 25% will be paid for a period of 3 months. Employees will also be eligible for appraisal cycles based on their contributions when they were active.
- Employees will also receive contributions to the provident fund, insurance and additional medical benefits.
