Bengaluru-based food delivery platform Swiggy has launched an accelerator programme that allows its delivery executives to transition into full-time, managerial-level jobs with a fixed salary and additional benefits.
Under its 'Step-Ahead' programme, it is aiming to give an opportunity to those executives who want to move from their current flexible engagement with the company to a dedicated, managerial role, shared the company release.
Swiggy is formalising this process and intends to reserve at least 20 per cent of all fleet manager hires for its delivery executives, it added.
“While most may consider their association with the platform as a stop-gap between jobs or an education, or even an additional source of income, we realise that there are some who want more,’ shared Mihir Rajesh Shah, VP- Operations, Swiggy by adding that with 'Step Ahead', Swiggy is creating a unique opportunity for those interested to flip their collar from blue to white and take on a managerial role.
Swiggy has over 2.7 lakh delivery partners across the country. The company said, to be eligible for the role of a fleet manager, a Swiggy delivery executive "must hold a college degree, possess communication skills and basic computer knowledge and should have been delivering with Swiggy for a few years".
It also added that the brand is also considering reducing the tenure requirement to around 2 years of association with the company. Over the years, several delivery executives have joined the platform as fleet managers, the company added.
