Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to provide more work life balance to employees.
Examples:
1. Organise weekly company sports activities like badminton, futsal or tennis.
2. Provide gym center or outside gym memberships to employees.
3. Organise more team building events or get-together activities.
4. Discourage employees to stay back and work too late in the company.
