Zomato’s Bengaluru delivery partner breaks barriers
In the tweet, geniusparadox expressed gratitude, stating, “Special thanks to the platform for enabling this!” The heartening post has garnered widespread acknowledgment, with many praising both Zomato and the PWD employees for their commendable efforts. Among the responses, a user took the opportunity to reconnect with a Zomato partner featured in a viral video, showcasing him delivering orders on a motorized wheelchair. The video offered a glimpse into the innovative approach employed by specially-abled individuals in fulfilling their roles.
In the footage, the Zomato employee skillfully attached his wheelchair to the motorized portion of his vehicle, operated by a battery. He then demonstrated the functionality by navigating the surroundings, showcasing the effectiveness of the wheelchair-attachable bike. This initiative is part of a broader trend where companies like Zomato, Lemon Tree, Pepe Jeans, KFC, JW Marriott, Wow! Momo Foods, and Shoppers Stop are actively providing front-facing roles to persons with disabilities.
The inclusive move has received widespread appreciation, not only from the disabled community but also from those applauding the efforts of companies contributing to a more inclusive and diverse workforce.
