The Indian arm of Swedish fashion retailer H&M plans to hire 200 employees by the end of the year that would push up its staff strength to 1000 in the country, according to a report in the Business Standard.

H&M has six stores across the Delhi-National Capital Region, Bengaluru and Mohali and around 800 employees.

According to Dhatri Bhatt, Head of Communications at H&M India, the company has long-term plans for India and believes in investing to grow local talent.

H&M which opened its first store in India in New Delhi last October, plans to open three outlets in Mumbai, two in Pune and one in Chennai. The count would go to 12 by the end of this year, the company said recently.

Globally, H&M has around 4,000 stores and 148,000 employees.To give international exposure to its staff, during the country launch its sales advisors were sent to the UK for a month's training while store management team was sent for two months.

Bhatt said H&M has become the first retail chain in India to give two days off in a week to its sales staff. The company is also hiring internally.

“At H&M India, 10 sales advisors in less than six months moved to management roles and 55 employees have been moved to newer roles,” she said.

H&M plans to invest Rs 780 crore to open 30 stores in the country in five years. (SH)
