“India Inc is thriving, backed by an increasing business friendly sentiment and a positive economic trajectory. Understanding the pulse of a younger employee base, enterprises in India are working to build an ethos that drives performance and also delivers a rich workplace experience,” said Irfan Abdulla, Director, Talent Solutions & Learning Solutions, LinkedIn India.
LinkedIn further said that many of the good employers have one thing in common—they reward their employees well. From unique welcome traditions to offering sabbaticals for tenured employees and well-being programs, companies offer perks in order to retain employees.
“We have an extremely open and empowering culture where we place full trust in our employees. We are dedicated to build this culture of growth and to fuel our commitment to constantly innovate, disrupt and build India’s global technology powerhouse,” Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO, Flipkart, said.
