Flipkart, one of India’s leading e-commerce giants, is gearing up for its 10th edition of its annual flagship event, The Big Billion Days 2023. Ahead of the sale that is expected to start later this month or in early October, the company has announced that it is looking at hiring and creating lakhs of seasonal jobs across its pan India supply chain to cater to customer demand during the festive season.
Flipkart’s Plans for Supply Chain Ahead of Big Billion Days 2023
Flipkart aims to generate over 1,00,000 new job opportunities across its supply chain, including fulfillment centers, sortation centers, and delivery hubs. These seasonal jobs include local kirana delivery partners, women, persons with disabilities (PWDs), and others, thus creating avenues for diverse supply chain talent.
This year, Flipkart has scaled its supply chain with last-mile distribution hubs and large-scale fulfillment centers, strengthening its reach in tier-III cities and beyond. The company has added more than 19 lakh square feet of space across Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Bihar, Punjab, Rajasthan, Telangana and many more states.
Skilling Initiatives for Workforce
To provide a delightful end-customer experience, Flipkart undertakes specially curated skilling initiatives through its training programs for the workforce that joins the supply chain. This not only helps significantly boost local employment and the economy but also prepares these employees to work in tech-driven supply chains, food tech, and other allied industries.
All hired personnel undergo training in the supply chain process for their respective function and are trained to handle Hand-Held Devices, PoS Machines, scanners, various mobile applications and more.
By leveraging its supply chain prowess, Flipkart said that it is poised to celebrate the 10th edition of its annual flagship event with an impactful presence that resonates across the e-commerce landscape and reverberates through the lives of numerous individuals.
