Medikabazaar Offers To Hire Around 200 Laid-Off Zomato Employees
Medikabazaar is looking at hiring around 200 Zomato employees who were recently laid off from the foodtech startup, the online business-to-business medicine supplier said on Tuesday.
Zomato customer-support employees, who have telecalling and telesales experience, will be hired for Medikabazaar for its inside sales and customer care functions.
Zomato had earlier this month laid off 541 employees across its customer, merchant and delivery partner support teams earlier this month.
"Medikabazaar wants to ramp up its team by an additional 500 staff in various positions. We can immediately look at hiring 200 former staff from Zomato in relevant positions of customer care, inside sales and operations," Medikabazaar Executive Vice-President Akash Rajpal said. The company is also looking at boosting manpower in its technology division, he added.
"Any giant leap towards progress will inevitably lead some people to fall through the cracks. We at Medikazaar want to ensure that these people get back on their feet, and are happy to offer the open positions at our company to deserving candidates,” said Anil Mohanty, head of human resources at Medikabazaar.
