With an employee strength of 140, our organisation believes in maintaining a healthy work environment, clear communication with employees for individual goals and career path, training and learning opportunities. We adopt a reward and recognition programme to retain talent. Our employees are given incentives based on performance in the team.
Challenges we face include involving employees in exciting and challenging assignments. Career growth, learning and development are important to us as are fair pay and benefits. We provide good mentorship and try to maintain work-life balance.
To overcome these challenges, it is essential to motivate employees to work towards growth and development through challenging work. Employees need to be involved to achieve results. Planning and implementing training and development schemes for employees according to current business needs and future potential are just as crucial. Employee engagement programs, surveys and benchmarks regarding salary and benefits are important. We try to implement a competitive salary and benefits. These include additional employee wellness programmes like flexibility in availing of annual leave. We also try to create an atmosphere conducive to the growth of a leader.
Productivity, creativity and innovation are skills that play a vital role in the growth and learning of an employee. Employees are motivated to develop every skill that will enhance their career.
