New Delhi: Soon food delivery app Zomato will be recruiting more women delivery partners in the next few months, empowering women who usually like to tread upon the ‘less traveled path’ while choosing this as a career choice.
At present, only 0.5 percent of Zomato delivery partners are women. The company plans to achieve the goal of reaching 10 percent participation by the end of 2021 in cities including Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune.
“Today, we are taking our first step towards increasing the participation of women delivery partners in our fleet. To begin with, we have set ourselves a goal of reaching 10% participation by the end of 2021 starting with Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Pune. Adding more women to our delivery fleet is not as simple as just targeting more women for this job. That’s because our policies need to change in order to attract and retain more women delivery partners,” Zomato Co-founder Deepinder Goyal said in the blog.
