Q. Coming from your position as CXO / HR Head, what is your experience with regards to health issues of your employees?
Ans. It’s very interesting to see that people are taking Health seriously. Both young and Old. This was definitely not the case a couple of years ago. Thanks to the Web – with increasing information and awareness, employees are thinking towards a direction of “Healthy Living”. While there is awareness, it will take some more time for thoughts to become actions. It’s a better situation now in corporates, employees actively participate in health related programs. They do acknowledge the Healthcare / Wellness initiatives we provide. There is a Feel good factor.
