Every company thrives on the concept of generating more revenues than the previous day but what they don’t take into consideration is the welfare of the employees who earn that revenue for that company. Out of one hundred managers, eighty managers or more will list revenue generation as one of the prime reason for company’s growth. How? They will give you tight work packed schedules and meetings and would even ask for over time but, as justified as it may sound what they fail to realise is that employees are like cogs in a machine and they would only work faster, better or say more efficiently if those cogs are regularly greased. If you want to have the fastest car, you got to ensure that the engine that runs it is not overheated. However, there are some companies who chose to take on the less travelled path and they got amazing results as promised.
Here are some of those companies that would need both your hard work and luck.
