Dear All, Kindly suggest an alternate name for word "Employee". As I personally don't like the word employee because they are the assets of company and one should feel proud working in the company where they have value and they are considered as the valuable asset of the company.

Hi Devika,
It would be good to stick to the terminology as "employee" because all labour related acts use the reference, employer and employee and in the event of a legal situation, this creates clarity.
Some companies use terms such as "talent" or "process owner/stakeholder", but these are used as jargons and that is why in their employment letters with the employees, the terms employer/company and employee are still used.
To create a feeling of importance some companies may use the term HR business partner as an example, but for sure the employment letter would have entirely different terms aligning to employee conditions and not to that of partnership contracts.

Dear colleague,
However you may dislike the word 'employee' , it is so legally well entrenched in books of law, you cannot do without it . The ' employee' connotes the person employed for wages/ salary to do some work and no other word possibly captures it so well.
Therefore in your HR policy , you may refer them as ' Employee' while addressing them in common communication , it is suggested, you may call them as 'Associates'.

I think "Karmayogi" will be the right word for employee in your organisation. Because only in Companies Annual Reports employees/workmen are called assets of the Company in India. Regards, Suresh
