Employee Benefit Programmes

Employees on a limited duration contract do not traditionally qualify for financial employee benefits. However, as an organisation providing a skilled workforce, access to the best benefits is extended to all our employees. Our philosophy is to provide financial security to employees, while recognising individuality, remote work location and varying terms of employment. We therefore consider various possibilities for their cover and well-being.

To help our employees focus and excel, we support them beyond the work environment with a bouquet of benefits available through our benefits programme.
