Strong employee engagement drives pride, energy and ownership of our goal and strategy. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, several initiatives were undertaken to uplift employee morale and boost engagement. This included offering flexible working hours to help maintain a good work-life balance, special leaves to employees advised for isolation, timely disbursal of salaries, increments and incentives (including to contractual workmen) and honouring
of union settlements. All locations ensured active participation between the management and employees. Through periodic meetings, grievances and concerns were discussed transparently and settled.
Recognising employees in a fair, open and meaningful way helps to drive employee engagement and attract and retain best talent.
This year, we held the first edition of the Deepak Group Rewards & Recognition Awards to recognise and celebrate noteworthy contributions by individuals and teams towards organisational growth as well as those who collaborated to successfully manage the COVID-19 emergency.
Understanding engagement status and initiating need-based actions to enhance engagement continues to be a focal area for the organisation. Employee engagement surveys are conducted through the globally accepted tool of Gallup Q12 Survey. For
FY 2020-21, Deepak achieved an average engagement score of 4.09 out of 5.
