Ecom Express plans to employ temporarily 30 000 people for the festive season in the next few weeks. Ecom Express looks after the ‘logistics’ facilities like goods delivery. The organization plans to appoint new people during festivals to meet the rising demand from e-commerce firms. In the last few months, the organization recruited 7,500 workers to complete the ‘lockdown’ and subsequent ‘online’ order. Before Covid-19, the employees at the company were only about 23,000.\n\n\n\nPeople turn to Covid-19 e-commerce among food products, medicine, and other products. Saurabh Deep Singla, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resource Officer, Ecom Express, said, “The epidemic has brought the e-commerce industry to a different level.” Our e-commerce customers make a lot of aggressive plans during the festivals and we want to make sure that they can meet the demand. We have initiated its appointments. This process will continue through 10 October and we expect 30,000 temporary jobs to be created during the festivals.\n\n\n\nThe workforce at the company in August stood at 30,500. “We appointed 20,000 individuals before the festivals last year,” he said. Although these jobs were temporary, approximately one-third of them have become permanent as we see an increase in orders even after festivals.\n\n\n\nE-commerce companies believe that much of their revenue will come during the festivals and they have made major investments to expand capacity so that orders can be handled better. Recently, Walmart-owned Flipkart added more than 50,000 grocery stores to strengthen the supply chain and raise distribution capacity. At the same time, the addition of five centers (Visakhapatnam, Farukhnagar, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad) became announced through Amazon India.
