Flipkart to onboard ex-Army personnel through ‘Flip March’ initiative
Walmart-owned Flipkart has collaborated with the Army Welfare Placement Organisation (AWPO) to onboard ex-Army personnel across its value chain under its 'Flip March' initiative.
Through this initiative, the e-commerce giant will identify and onboard selected candidates in roles across the organisation.
Commenting on the partnership, Flipkart chief people's officer, Krishna Raghavan, in a statement said: “Flipkart is a socially responsible organization which works towards the development of the society and its stakeholders. We have several ex-members of the Armed forces leading important charters here at Flipkart, and we are delighted to announce Flip March to take this initiative ahead.”
“The loyalty, discipline, and risk-taking ability of the members of the armed forces are of great value to Flipkart and will play a crucial role in building a robust organisation,” he added.
Major General Deepak Sapra, managing director of AWPO, added: “This partnership brings together two influential service providers serving the nation - a leading homegrown e-commerce marketplace and other providing opportunities to Indian Army Veterans.”
Flipkart claims to have many ex-Army personnel in its over 12,000 workforce across corporate offices, supply chain operations, and security management.
