In appreciation of the hard work and commitment shown by the 15,000 employees of PwC India amidst the disruptions caused by the pandemic, the Company has decided to offer a special one-time bonus to all of them
A bonus equivalent to two weeks’ pay will be given to all employees which will be included in the salary for March 2021. This one-time payout will be over and above the firm’s usual appraisal and increment cycle, which is set to follow previous timelines.
Sanjeev Krishan, chairman, PwC India, acknowledge the fact that 2020 was rather challenging for the Company as well as its clients. However, the employees responded with ‘extreme agility’ to ensure business continuity.
Krishan admits that it was the efforts of the employees that helped PwC and its clients ‘navigate the crisis well, and also emerge stronger from it.’ The Company is not only on track to meet its goals but also optimistic about the year ahead. Therefore, ‘we are extremely happy to share this success with our people through this token of appreciation,’ said Krishan.
PwC India was amongst the first to shift to remote working. It had also announced a special COVID insurance for its employees and their parents. In a bid to help its people manage burnout in a remote working environment, the firm also occasionally announces Pen’s Down Days, encouraging all employees to take a compulsory break from official work.
