Benefits Package for India Employees

Benefits are a valuable part of your compensation package. Our employee benefits are designed to be competitive within the markets we compete in, and are geared to attract, retain and motivate high-performing people. The benefits take into account the diversity of our workforce and are targeted at a broad spectrum of needs.
 
Your Health
 
    • Medical Insurance
eClerx employees are covered under United India Medical Insurance; eClerx pays 100% of the monthly healthcare premiums for its employees. This benefit enables cashless claims at network hospitals (over 3500 hospitals across India). Employee can procure their e‐cards (to be used during the time of hospitalization) by logging on to www.emeditek.com
 
    • Personal Accident Insurance
Company-paid accident insurance helps protect you from the costs of unexpected accidents. The plan includes benefits for initial care, injuries, hospitalization, and follow-up care to help employees cushion the financial blow of an accident. 
 
    • Emergency Response Service
24x7 access to a premier emergency response service for life threatening medical situations in the workplace – it means one less thing to worry about for you and your family. 
 
    • ​Health Camps
Health camps are conducted periodically by leading health service providers so employees can get comprehensive preventive health checks done at work. 
 
    • Personal Counselor
Like many other KPOs and BPOs, eClerx attracts a lot of young talent from all over the country. This means that for many of our employees, eClerx is the first job, and many employees are from other cities and hence away from home. These realities, along with work pressure, brings challenges that some of our people haven’t been exposed to before.
Moreover, we understand that many important decisions are made and problems solved through discussions with friends or family, colleague, or line manager. However, at times it is right to seek help away from one’s familiar daily environment. The counseling service at eClerx exists to meet such a need. Seeking counseling is about making a positive choice to get help by talking confidentially with a professionally trained listener who has no other role in the individual’s life.
Contact with the counselor is strictly confidential. Records never become part of an employee’s personnel file.

Your Learning
 
    • Continuing Education Policy
eClerx is committed to the success and professional development of its employees. The firm’s Continuing Education Policy assists employees (with financial support) desiring to obtain additional formal education and training relevant to their career.

By taking advantage of these tuition support benefits and participating in professional training courses, eClerx employees have an excellent opportunity to enhance their job prospects, whether they are looking to advance within their current career path or move into a new position within eClerx.
