Bengaluru-based Swiggy has incorporated a four-day work week during May, shared Girish Menon, Head HR at Swiggy over a mail to its employees on Saturday.

The move is aimed at supporting the physical and mental well-being of employees who may be dealing with sick relatives or friends.

Swiggy has also given employees an option to choose from on which four days they'd like to work.

“As a mark of respect for the efforts and the month that May can be with Covid cases escalating, we want to offer a four-day work week to all of you," added Menon in his mail.

The food delivery platform has also set up an emergency support team to help employees access ICUs and oxygen cylinders.

It is also offering a slew of other benefits to its employees, including salary advances, leave encashments, and access to loans. Employees whose family members test positive have access to self-quarantine facilities.

"Please decide the four days that each of you would work and utilise the extra day to take rest, take care of yourself, take care of your family and friends, added Menon by mentioning that they would also release the May salaries of Grade 1 to 6 employees early and employees in this category will receive a nutrition support payment if they or their family members test positive.
