Hello Kaushik,

These are the days of CTC. I do not think that you can attract people with some schemes.
However, You can consider the following :-

Advance for renting a house. This can be a deal between employees, house owner and the company.

Advance for purchase of vehicle : through banks and interest is paid by the company

Furnishings for the new home: again interest paid by the compnay

The Best is : Ask the employer for split up. He will tell you what suits him most.''

Very rarely does the pay packet help in retention ; remember employees leave their boss and rarely the company and very rarely for the split of the CTC.

Keep Going..

There is no doubt that these are the days wherein the employee really takes the CTC factor into consideration but then Employee Benefits, if practiced fairly also act as a measure for motivating and retention of employees.

It’s infact good news that companies are realizing the fact that no compromise can be done in losing talent and that’s the cause “Talent Retention” is the buzz word these days in each of the corporates.

The Employee Benefit factors may be :


-Employee Referral Schemes

-Employee Recognition Program (Employee of the Month)

-Variable Performance based incentives

-Subsidized Food Coupons/Vouchers

-Insurance Coverage (Life/Accident)

-Stipulated Fixed Training Hours per employee (Yearly basis)

-Frequent Family Get-Togethers

-Fair System of Performance Appraisals

-Succession Planning & Career Plan Charting

I assume, these are few of them which shall be considered as a “Benefit”, especially by the Executive & the Officer Cadre.

Any Comments from members ??

Dear Group,

Except for variable pay for performance ( you better give if you want to retain talent!) and esop, all others are measurable in terms of cash

Therefore , truly  we should ask the employee for his option. It will serve better purpose.
