We are honoured to have won this esteemed award for the second time in a row! Awards like these reflect our relentless efforts towards building a strong foundation of a “People Focused” organisation!
Aeris has a robust and effective HR and people management system, contributing significantly to Talent Management, Talent Development, and Talent Innovation. Our talent management and development practice create an enabling environment to promote innovation and idea generation among employees and keep them at a competitive advantage. Our policies have been focusing on the “Employee Experience” and the Leadership and Managers are oriented to be aware of and respectful of employee’s needs to their right to a stress-free work environment.
We have created three ‘green eco zones’ in the office complete with lush green plants and grass; a stroll around these green zones lifts up the employee’s spirits and provides a ‘mental break’ from work. Additionally, we have also introduced indoor games such as Snooker, Table Tennis and Foosball in a spacious recreation area to facilitate employee engagement by allowing them to take short breaks during their work schedule and allow to destress themselves. Also, every quarter we organize a FitBit step up challenge where in employees can participate in a wellness competition spanning over three weeks.
