Accomplishments in 2016

Joining: A robust online joining mechanism which helps associates to spend more time with the respective practice team on their joining date rather than filling forms. An online handbook is shared with the new joinees before they come on board, which helps them to understand the company’s policies prior to joining and thereby helping them to settle down much earlier.

Induction: The Induction program typically extends for 1 – 2 days for lateral hires. Essentially, it focuses on immersing new hires into our culture, philosophy and engagements. All the new hires are greeted by the Managing Director, Practice Heads and the HR Team and there is a clear communication to them about the mission, vision and values of the organization.

Work Culture: Just as an organization needs the right talent to drive its mission and vision, employees need the right environment to grow and achieve their career goals. At RheinBrücke, we understand that. The moment you step in, you would be greeted with that unmistakable feeling of being at the right place by giving employees with a sense of certainty of a successful career. Some of the critical elements that define our work culture are global exposure, cross-domain experience, and work-life balance.

Speaking and Listening: Frequent sessions by senior management to be open, transparent offering access to information, enabling and encouraging employees to contribute beyond the scope of a narrowly defined job. Special open systems for incorporating peoples’ ideas, for including people in decision-making, and enabling them to air their concerns and grievances.

Performance Matters: We are committed to building and sustaining a performance driven organization that fosters and rewards professional excellence. Performance management integrates the Individual KRAs, performance assessment, rewards and recognition, and employee development. Performance management reviews are conducted on a quarterly basis in addition to the annual appraisal process.

Rewards & Recognition: RheinBrücke believes in thanking, recognizing and rewarding good work and extra levels of effort. We have various award categories like SPOT, PoB, iCON, master mind and team awards to recognize and reward associates in different categories.
