The Career Reboot Program is an extension of Pepperfry’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity, seeking to proactively recruit and empower homemakers, new mothers, and women returning from career breaks to join the team as Part-Time Home Consultants in the store. This initiative, which will be in force across cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and NCR, recognises the unique talents and intrinsic sense of aesthetics that women bring to the workforce.

Talking about the brand’s innovative initiative, Hussaine Kesury, Chief Activation Officer at Pepperfry, said, “We believe in the power of diversity and understand the value that women bring to the workplace.
