“The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more.” -Jonas Salk
In the times of diminishing abundance and vitality, when a company decides to reward their hardworking employees, humanity pats on the back with intense confidence in the kind of values we uphold and all the hope that is imparted for people to feel emboldened in the times of absolute despair.
TV9 has announced one such initiative where they will be rewarding their employees with bonus before Diwali along with the regular appraisals in March next year. CEO, TV Network- Barun Das announced this in an internal email conveyed to all the happy faces.
In an internal mail Barun, announced-
As you all are aware, the world has gone through unimaginably difficult times over the last 7 months. Covid-19 has taken unprecedented toll on both human lives and the global economy. Media hasn’t been immune to the ravages of the pandemic, with even the biggest media companies cutting salaries and laying off employees. I am proud to say that at TV9 network we never allowed that to happen, despite the pressures.
Indeed, through the pandemic, we have continued resolutely on our mission of keeping our viewers informed and armed with the best possible news and views to help them deal with this crisis--often at risk to our own well-being. So, please accept my deep appreciation of your hard work and commitment.
Keeping that in mind, we are pleased to announce an increment with retrospective effect from April 2020.
We are announcing flat percentage increase , based on salary slabs, because we didn’t believe it was prudent to differentiate, given that all of us have worked as one: one network, one team. All employees who joined the organisation on or before September 30, 2019 will be eligible for the increment. Needless to mention, employees who have already been intimated about serious performance or disciplinary issues will not be included in this increment plan.
The arrears will be released before Diwali, and we hope this gesture of appreciation gives us one more reason to rejoice, as we slowly, but surely, emerge out of tough times.
We are also happy to tell you that despite the unexpected increment, we will be conducting an annual appraisal in March 2021.
Keep up the good work. ‘Best wishes to you and your family for a happy and cautious Diwali.
Happiness and hope cannot be measured but one can surely fill someone’s heart with it and TV9’s compassionate initiative has certainly brought joy on many faces.
