For an average person, the mere mention of anything related to a Warehouse still brings to mind male-dominated spaces and roles. We at Myntra are happy to paint a picture to the contrary. Over the years, not only have the Women employees at Myntra’s warehouse grown in numbers, the growth in the career paths of many of these women is a testimony to the fact that they can not only work in diverse roles but excel at it!
Behind our highly efficient packaging and dispatch system are the women of warehouse who work hard to ensure that we create value and bring joy to you. One such woman is Lakshmi Devi, an officer who manages the inbound activities that include quality checks on packages and ensuring timely dispatches for delivery.
Evolving with Myntra
Lakshmi’s journey of seven years at Myntra has seen her evolve impressively, with respect to her learning, financial growth, and social standing both at home and at the workplace. Her hard work and determination to build a strong identity for herself have helped her grow in her career. At the same time, her approachable and cheerful demeanor has made it easy for her to build a deeper connect with her team to help them stay motivated.
When asked what makes her journey at Myntra happy and fulfilling, she is quick to add that it’s the support of her superiors at work and the respect that she receives from them and her co-workers that helps her stay motivated and inspires her to do better. “Myntra has been a beacon of hope for me and my family. Not only have I have been able to get my two boys admitted to English-medium schools, my husband and I could also construct a house of our own, which otherwise would have been impossible,” she adds joyfully.
With the festive season around the corner, Lakshmi is geared up with her entire team to support the delivery volumes. She is a trailblazer in the true sense of the word. A winner of several Employee Awards for going the extra mile at doing what she does, she leads and motivates her team by example.
Myntra leads the way as an inclusive workplace and is committed to offering equal employment and growth opportunities for women to become leaders of tomorrow. This diversity initiative made a tremendous difference in the lives of many women, who have now become a true breadwinner for their families and are now able to support them independently.
