Talent demand for doorstep delivery and related functions in the broader logistics and web commerce chain is fast outpacing supply amid a robust economic recovery, potentially raising pay packets and festive-season benefits for the staff engaged in these roles at industries such as logistics, ecommerce and warehousing, experts at recruitment services and staffing firms like Quess, CIEL HR and Randstad told ET.
“We are noticing a new trend this year where companies are offering joining and retention bonuses for roles of in-shop demonstrators, operations and supply chain,” said Aditya Misra, chief executive, CIEL HR. “These incentives are not statutory payments and are aimed at attracting and retaining employees until the end of the contract so that continuity is maximised.”
These incentives range from 30% to 60% of monthly take-home salaries of such employees, Misra said.
