Welfare activities need not be in terms of monetary benefits always, it can be through the welfare, working conditions, recreation, health etc.,
The reason behind providing these welfare facilities is to create healthy, efficient, satisfied and loyal employees. Which also helps in retaining the work life balance and raises the standard of their living.
We at JIC take utmost care in providing welfare and recreational facilities to our employees. Initially the management understands the needs of our employees and determines their requirements. Basing on the feedback received a program is structured and put into action.
Periodic feedback is sought in order to understand whether an employee is satisfied with the facilities provided to them and the recreational activities are able to help them in retaining the work life balance. These activities are prone to periodic reviews and the improvement from the existing activities is brought into practice.
Recreational activities indeed boost the morale of the employees and their productivity also increases. We celebrate birthdays of employees to give them a home away from home feeling.
