The Indian Naval Placement Agency (INPA) and e-commerce company Flipkart today signed a memorandum of understanding, through which the two entities will explore opportunities for the recruitment naval of veterans at the Flipkart Group.
Through the agreement, INPA will identify a pool of Ex-Servicemen candidates for relevant roles as per recruitment standards of Flipkart, a statement from Ministry of Defence said.
The company will, in turn, enable these individuals transition to the corporate sector through in-house assimilation and training programs.
Flipkart is undertaking this program under its ‘Diversity and Inclusion Charter’ under the aegis of ‘FlipMarch’ that aims to offer Ex-Servicemen opportunities in line with their qualifications, experience, and attributes acquired during their service period, the statement said.
“As a country we are indebted to the valour and contribution of the armed forces to our country. Through our Flip March program, Flipkart aims to create a bridge to facilitate Ex-Servicemen to find opportunities in the corporate world, enriching our talent pool, while also finding continued employment that leverages their skill set. We are proud to be associated with INPA’s efforts and mutually grow our programs further,” said, Rajneesh Kumar, Senior Vice President.
