Employees that are their Heroes, both within and outside the business are celebrated, with videos circulated about their stories and success on WhatsApp and Yammer, two of their digital employee engagement platforms. They also regularly post inspirational stories of our employees who display the right values and behavior. Leaderboards at various locations help such employees see their photographs being proudly displayed to all other employees and outsiders.
Inclusion is a key ingredient in developing the business plans and in incorporating valuable inputs of all employees. The Sales and Distribution Function and other key business units conduct a set of ‘Bottom-up’ workshops, allowing the employees at the frontline and throughout the rest of the business units to be a part of determining the company’s business plans. This empowerment and inclusion through bottom-up also results in better ownership, accountability, goal-clarity & employee engagement levels.
Here everyone is given the opportunity to develop himself & his team. Compensation above the industry average and no unnecessary harassment to anyone. People feel empowered with respect to their position and try to deliver their best with full sincerity. People wish to work here until their retirement age & above.
