While companies worldwide are either laying off their staff or introducing pay cuts to survive the economic after-effects of the pandemic, Ecom Express is doing just the opposite. Amidst such uncertainties, the logistics solutions provider has revealed its plan to hire over 7,000 full-time employees in the next two months!
The decision to hire more people was taken after the Company witnessed a surge in online shopping across cities, with people opting for doorstep deliveries post the pandemic.
The intention to hire is also driven by the dire need to keep the supply chain running smoothly, and ensure safe and timely deliveries. Also, the Company is gearing up for the festive season, when the number of online shoppers is expected to spike, given the festival sales, discounts and special offers that are characteristic of the period.
The hiring will span across business functions, such as last-mile delivery, warehouse management, operations, information technology and data sciences. Candidates from across India, including Ahmedabad, Surat, Chandigarh, Indore, Patna, Lucknow, Kanpur, Bhopal, Jaipur and the metros will be considered.
Being a logistics services provider to the e-commerce industry, employees are the backbone of Ecom Express. In order to facilitate the deluge of doorstep deliveries, it will need more hands.
These new positions will make up around 25 per cent of the company’s total workforce.
