Under the scheme, employees up to E-7 grade can opt from various shorter working-hour options like three days a week, every alternate day, four hours every working day or half of the working days in a month with a variable pay structure. The employees availing of this scheme will be able to retain facilities and benefits including HRA/accommodation, medical benefits and other perks.

The company always adopts strategies and introduces schemes for better employee engagement and motivation. This new scheme is a step towards this and it will give a larger canvas to several employees wanting to invest or devote time to other pursuits and responsibilities, while also being in employment.”
