Snapdeal engages experts from Indian Institute of Counselling for employee wellness

The company has also scheduled mental wellness awareness webinars for all its employees


MUMBAI: Snapdeal, an e-commerce platform, has onboarded experts from the Indian Institute of Counselling experts to provide easy access to its employees who wish to seek counselling support to handle any issues of anxiety or stress in their lives.

Considering the current testing times with unprecedented uncertainties, it is natural for people to feel anxious. The initiative is an attempt to build a positive and relaxed frame of mind by providing access to mental health professionals who are trained and experienced in helping people deal with anxieties. The entire process is confidential and counsellors can be reached via a telephone number available to the team.

The company has also scheduled mental wellness awareness webinars for all its employees with experts from the industry. The webinar aims to support employees in functioning effectively, coping with day-to-day stress and being productive and positive as individuals.

Snapdeal has begun multiple initiatives to keep the team motivated and healthy from day one of the lockdown. One such program is ‘Hustle for Muscle’, created to encourage employees to stay healthy and fit. Each day a video displaying a different form of exercise or activity, such as at home Zumba, Yoga, Aerobics, etc., is shared with the team to help them kick-start their day on a high-energy note.

“At Snapdeal, the wellbeing of every team member is of paramount importance. We are encouraging and supporting team members in pursuing physical and mental well-being,” said a Snapdeal spokesperson.

With all teams working diligently from home, the company has also launched a Snapdeal Radio featuring curated songs to begin the day positively as well as a daily tip that makes WFH more productive and helps the teams balance their work and personal lives.

Additionally, Snapdeal has started fun games and contests such as Online Scavenger Hunt or “Ghar ghar mein talent hai”, wherein family members of teams showcase the talent hidden in their own homes. The “I Commit to a 21-day Miracle” was also launched, urging people to pick up a new activity or hobby that makes them happy and helps release suppressed stress created by the pandemic forcing people indoors. Other recent fun interactions are the introduction of childhood favorite games and engaging activities like Tambola etc.
