Welcoming

Not Just AnyBuddy

Indus Towers has given a new meaning to the Buddy Program and much thought has been put while designing the same. An important pillar in welcoming the new employees, the program is aimed to foster a culture of friendship and not just a knowledge sharing platform. Firstly, the buddies are carefully chosen post Self and Leadership nomination from across locations and the criteria is to choose employees who have a sense of connect and empathy and genuinely want to be Buddies. Through the Buddy Program Workshop, they are trained and educated on various subjects to act as culture guides for the new joiner and to ensure consistency. A Buddy effectiveness survey has been launched as well to ensure that the program proves to be impactful and useful to new joiners. With this early attrition has remained stable and have witnessed lower attrition as compared to previous years.

The organization gives equal importance to the safety and health of my family as well as myself along with my work which I find unique compared to other organizations.
