CoinSwitch, India’s crypto investing firm, has extended maternity and paternity leaves for employees, far beyond what is mandated by the Government.
As part of its enhanced-benefits programme, employees will now be able to avail 34 weeks of maternity leave (8 months) as against the standard 26 weeks, and four weeks of paternity leave (1 month) as against the Government-mandated 15 days!
Zeeshan Ramlan, director and head – HR, CoinSwitch, admits that the startup’s “diverse workforce is our strength, helping us build a wealth-tech destination for every Indian”.
Realising that “a happy employee leads to a happy user,” the Company’s “enhanced parenthood benefits programme will enable our employees to relish the joys of life without having to trade off their career goals,” Ramlan reiterated.
Recently, the Company introduced an industry-first pet care and adoption policy, in addition to other employee-benefits programmes including paid leaves for charity work, a raise in bereavement leaves from five days to two weeks, mandatory recharge days, paid leave on work- and wedding anniversary, and reimbursement of tuition fee.
Founded in 2017, the Indian crypto-investing app is creating an ecosystem that simplifies crypto and is trusted by over 18 million registered users. Founders Ashish Singhal, Govind Soni, and Vimal Sagar Tiwari, were backed by various blue-chip investors that have helped it evolve into a wealth-tech destination.
