With the objective of ensuring quality of life and allowing its employees to balance their personal and work life, Myntra has enhanced its leave policy. Employees can now avail Unlimited Wellness Leaves in addition to a host of other leave options so that they are mentally and physically healthy. The leave policy has been enhanced to align with the organisation’s people culture, based on care and empathy.
The wellness leave will ensure that employees take time off to take care of their well-being without worrying about leave balance.
The fashion brands platform has also introduced 14 days of Care Leaves that employees can avail to take care of young children and older parents when they fall sick or need assistance.
They can also take five days off as wedding leave, including for weddings taking place outside the country, same-sex partner marriages, and civil unions, as Myntra proudly champions the cause of LGBTQIA+ and this is an important step in this direction. That is not all, Vacation days provide employees with an opportunity to avail 24 days of leave, to travel, to care of family members in need and to quality time with loved ones.
Amar Nagaram, CEO, Myntra, believes, “This step will be yet another pillar of strength, enhancing the scope for employees to take care of their priorities at work and beyond, while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.”
The rest of the existing leaves, including parental (maternity and paternity), adoption leaves which are applicable for even LGBT couples, surrogacy leave, gender reassignment surgery leave, pet adoption leave (pawternity), sabbatical, and others, will continue as per Myntra’s existing leave policy structure.
