Welcoming

Psychometric Assessment Policy

Every new joinee goes through two psychometric assessments. While one of them focusses on the individual working style, the other is to ascertain the team working style. These assessment results are shared with their respective managers on day one itself. This helps managers come up with a plan for the new joinee before they meet them on day two.

Management is open to innovation and shows trust and faith in the employees. It's a growing organisation with an aggressive growth path. One does not stagnate in a role. There is scope for improvement and growth for the individual.
