I'm taking care of Compensation & Welfare in a FMCG sector. I'm planning to roll out few welfare activities for our employees.
Can u suggest some welfare measures in tie up with some institution on health topics or others ( other than mediclaim, personal Accident.

Hi Kayal,

Ofcourse, there are quite a lot you can do. It all depends on your priorities/constraints/Policies and the budget for the same.

I suggest some of the following

1 : A creche facility for working mothers.

2 : Work from home for expecting mothers

3 : Flexi timing for applicable staff

4: Arranging lectures from eminent doctors on certain common occupational hazards and preventing the same. For eg if some one is constantly on the phone (eg front office people) they tend to develop certain ailments. You can arrange how to prevent the same. Same is true for people using computers constantly(like you and me). Prevention of RSI etc.

5: Conducting yoga/aerobic classes within the campus(if space available) or tie up with a local health club.

6: Sponsoring for Gymnasium memberships or alternately having an inhouse GYM.

Encouraging employees to be part of some sporting teams(Your company's team) like Cricket or volleyball or football and allowing them to participate in inter company competitions. This will also build branding for your company.

7: COnducting quarterly/annually get together of the respective divisions or the whole company along with their family members to bond the family with the organisation.

8: Sponsoring team outings/lunches for celebrating important milestones to build team spirit.

9: Giving a Gift vouchers/Sponsoring dinners on important personal occassions/celebrations like birthdays, wedding anniversary, birth of a new child into the family etc.

10: Granting paternity leaves(Most of them have 5 days) for employees(Some companies don't have) when a child is born.

11: Facilitating a Conceirge services for routine chores like credit card payments, bill payments, railway/flight ticket bookings, bus ticket bookings, tax payments, insurance payments, mobile bill payments, movie ticket bookings, Gas bookings, etc for busy busy people. You don't have to pay the charges but you can set up a desk at your office. Let the employee pay the service charges to them Most companies do these work for a small fee say 5 Rs per transaction .. etc.

Basically by facilitating this you are taking the pains away from the employee and allow him focus on his job

12: If your staff is staying in far off places may be you can provide a company transport(by deducting applicable charges) on a no profit no loss basis. I feel driving is pain in most cities.

13 : Since you are a FMCG company, you can give your employees some kind of rebate/discount on items purchased on your own products.

14: For senior management, you could consider providing housing loan subsidy (Part of the interest is paid by company).

15: In addition to PF and grautity, for senior people, you could provide superannuattion contributions(LIC has a scheme) for retaining top executives.

I could think of only these at this time.

2. free health lectures in tie up with Apollo

However, few points mentioned by you are new like transport & aerobics are interesting and shall try out on those.
