There’s no better way to start the New Year than by saying good words and bringing happiness to people’s lives. It gets even better when employers appreciate their employees for the hard work put in and reward their efforts. Maleshaa Inc. and its start-up initiative Danvanthiri, together had rolled out the awards across both organisations, ‘Employee of the Month’ and ‘Team of the Month’ awards. This is done to recognize employees who have gone beyond the call of duty and have come out with flying colours with the results achieved both individually and as a team.
The rewards and recognitions do not stop at just this. There are more awards namely the Star Performer of the Year 2016 and the Star Employee of the Year 2016, the highest level of awards at the companies.
The winners are chosen based on their overall performance throughout the year. A special jury reviews the nominations and declares the winner. The winner is eligible for a promotion and a salary appraisal too. If an employee wins any of these awards annual awards for 3 consecutive years he/she becomes a CXO.
