New Delhi, 11 March 2021: As an appreciation for the unrelenting commitment and efforts made by its 15,000 employees in a year that was disruptive owing to the COVID pandemic, PwC India today announced a special one-time bonus for all its employees.
“The past one year has been one of the most challenging and disruptive years for business, not only for us but also our clients. It called for an organisational and workplace overhaul that none of us anticipated. Responding to the crisis with extreme agility and ensuring business continuity for all was paramount and we are very proud of and humbled by the way all our people got together and ensured that we and our clients not only navigate the crisis well, but also emerge stronger from it. It is because of their efforts that even in such an extremely difficult year, we are on course to meet our goals and are optimistic about the year ahead. We are extremely happy to share this success with our people through this token of appreciation,” said Sanjeev Krishan, Chairman, PwC India.
“We are not only grateful to our people but also their families for being the strong support system that enabled our people to do their work well. We thank them for being a part of the extended PwC family,” Krishan added.
PwC India will be providing a bonus equivalent to 2 weeks’ pay, to all employees which will be included in the salary for March 2021. This one-time payout will be independent of the firm’s usual appraisal and increment cycle, which is set to follow previous timelines.
PwC India was one of the first firms to officially announce remote working for all its people, even before the Government mandated it post a rise in COVID cases last year. The firm had also announced a specialised COVID insurance for its people and one set of parents. In a bid to help its people manage burnout in a remote working environment, the firm also occasionally announces Pen’s Down Days wherein all employees are encouraged to mandatorily take a break from official work.
