    Lot of opportunities for younger generation to grow with Organisation. Challenging assignments with supporting management. People once joins dreams of serving for a longer period.

    Curtail the habit of recruiting the retired Professionals as Part time Consultants instead take necessary steps to retain the working people who are there from the begining and check the possiblity of bringing those who have left Organisation for one reason or other.
