Online food delivery company Swiggy has launched an accelerator program that allows its delivery executives to transition into full-time managerial-level jobs with a fixed salary and additional benefits. This is an interesting move, considering that the scope for professional growth in gig economy startups is usually nothing to speak of.
Swiggy says it intends to reserve at least 20% of all fleet manager hires for its delivery executives, it added.
The food and grocery tech company 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.
