We are committed in bringing maximum benefits and awards to our employees via continuing with increments, annual and mid-year elevations and recognition as per earlier plans. We continue our digital rewards and recognition program 'SPARK' to appreciate and recognize the efforts of its team members.
When we are talking of shorter time cycle for OKR based performance management systems, non-monetary rewards will play a big role along with a combination of instant and deferred compensation plans which will also aid retention of employees.
