Swiggy Delivery Partners Can Get Managerial Jobs In New Accelerator Programme

Online food delivery business Swiggy has introduced an accelerator program! But what is this program all about? This program will enable its delivery executives to move into full-time managerial-level employment with a set salary and perks.  The company has taken an unusual step, given the possibility of professional advancement in gig economy firms. However, Swiggy said that they seek to provide a chance to executives who want to transition from their present flexible involvement with the firm to a committed management job as part of its ‘Step-Ahead’ initiative.

Swiggy further adds that they simplify this process and plan to reserve at least 20 per cent of all fleet management hiring for its delivery services.  Swiggy vice president of operations, Mihir Rajesh Shah, commented on the program for its delivery partners, saying, “While most may consider their association with the platform as a stop-gap between jobs or education, or even as an additional source of income, we recognize that there are some who want more.”

“With ‘Step Ahead,’ Swiggy is presenting a one-of-a-kind chance for anyone interested in switching their blue collar for a white collar and taking on a management job,” he said.
