Shipsy Rolls Out Career Reboot Programme

Oct 25, 2021 | By The Economic Times

In an endeavour to encourage diversity at the workplace, SaaS-based smart logistics management platform provider, Shipsy has rolled out a programme called ‘2nd Innings’. The programme opens doors to all professionals who want to return to corporate life as full-time employees after a sabbatical, and will be open for individuals willing to get back to their professional life, irrespective of age or gender, to work with Shipsy.

“Diversity and inclusion lie at the core of Shipsy. We celebrate and honour individuals’ decisions and commitment towards other important areas of life, be it a family, nation, health, exploring a different career choice, or pursuing a hobby. We believe in creating equal opportunity for all and have made progress towards broader and dynamic representation,” said Soham Chokshi, CEO and co-founder of Shipsy.

The initiative roots for fair compensation and opportunity by ensuring that the skillset stays the only qualifying criteria for remuneration, not the last-drawn package.

“There is a vast pool of highly-skilled people who want to return to work. Our remote-first approach and strong virtual onboarding process will help them sail through the initial adjustment phase to assume their new roles with full confidence,” said Chokshi.

The organisation recently joined the remote-first bandwagon, allowing its employees to work from anywhere in the world. It has expanded its workforce by almost 75% this year through virtual engagement drives, with hiring still underway. The SaaS company has also invested in product and R&D and is looking to add more talent around new-age technologies such as blockchain, AI, and others.

Last year, the company raised $6 million in a Series A round led by Sequoia Capital India’s Surge and existing investor Info Edge.
