Grooming capable and confident leaders is a huge focus area at Crimson. Our
employees are encouraged to try their strengths and consistently trained,
evaluated, and identified for senior roles. Award-winning internal programs
like T-Square and L.E.A.P. offer every Crimsonite an opportunity to develop
their leadership skills and grow into dynamic ‘intrapreneurs’ that
contribute not just to collective success at the company, but to the
individual success of their team members and direct reports.
Our T Square Program, awarded ‘Outstanding HR Initiative’ by Global
Business Excellence Awards in 2018, identifies potential intrapreneurs
at Crimson and rewards them with gusto.
We firmly believe that our people are our biggest asset.
Crimson encourages talented, hardworking, and loyalist
Crimsonites to hone their leadership and business management

The idea is simple—if you show the spark, Crimson helps you

First-of-its-kind Reward and Recognition Program
The core principle that our “T-Square”
“Talent” and “Tenure”) is built upon is that “every
employee, no matter how small or big their role is by
designation, has an equal chance to make a ‘big’ difference
in the organization.”
We have always encouraged our
Crimsonites to work as “intrapreneurs” (employees as
entrepreneurs within the company), so it helps broaden their
perspective and helps them look beyond their daily job or
duties. When a Crimsonite is selected for the program, the
Crimsonite receives a salary hike of up to 50% of the gross
. Being termed “Business Partner” makes them feel
a sense of pride and keeps them engaged with us.
Crimson’s Lead, Energize, and Accelerate Program introduced in
2015 creates excellent learning and professional opportunities
for Crimsonites across all levels of employment through
extensive travel abroad. This award-winning Learning and
Development Program breaks conventional learning methodology to
offer onsite learning through experience of client interactions
and culture in countries like:
- United States of America
Crimson believes in continuous growth through learning. A PMP
certification sponsored by Crimson for our Project Management
teams showcases the fact that we walk the talk. The program
shapes one into a pro at Project Management, inculcating skills
of logical reasoning, strategic analysis, forecasting, etc.,
thus transforming one into an indispensable asset.
Crimson helps you achieve your academic dreams while
you pursue your professional ones. The sponsored BELS

ever-evolving learning needs of Crimsonites. We provide various
skill-enhancing opportunities to all Crimsonites, including
leadership development, continuous job-related development,
team development, organizational development, and change
We understand and appreciate just how important financial security is to the
fulsome growth of an individual. At Crimson, we’ve instituted a number of
benefits that significantly contribute to the financial well-being of every
employee. These include incentivized benefits (stock unit options, bonuses,
monthly incentives, appraisals, etc.) that directly reward performance and
ambition, loans and insurance systems to help with your personal needs, and
advantages like flexible salary payouts to name but a few. These are all
designed to ensure that alongside a fulfilling professional life, the
practical necessities of your life are handsomely met.
We are proud to confer on deserving Crimsonites the
privilege of being a Crimson SHAREHOLDER
through the coveted Employee Stock Unit Plan (ESUP). The
premise of this program is that Crimson’s wealth is shared
with the people who help create it. It also recognizes and
rewards Crimsonites with a high level of ownership
by making them shareholders of Crimson.
Our motive is and will remain — Think and Act like a
True Business Owner
Crimson follows an innovative salary payout system within which
each confirmed Crimsonite can receive his/her salary in two
installments within a month (fortnightly). Employees
work for 30 days and get salary after that. This is like a
payment credit being given to the employer, which we disagree
with as a system. An employee is giving his/her services in
advance. Logically, the employee should be paid earlier. Only
businesses give credit of 30 days. Thus, we decided to do away
with the norm and give salary 2 times a month. According to
this system, the first salary amounting to 40% of the salary is
paid between 12th and 14th of a month and the rest between 22nd
and 29th of the month. This makes the system fair and
equitable. The “end of the month” financial crisis
no longer exists for our Crimsonites!
With hard work comes great reward. At Crimson, we follow a 360°
appraisal format to ensure just and fair practices. You will
get feedback on your performance from not just your supervisor
but also your peers. The annual salary growth/hike
following the appraisal rewards the hard work by a Crimsonite
all through the year.
We all like something extra, right? The Annual Bonus payout is
a treat to every Crimsonite after a year of hard work. This
bonus is paid in addition to the monthly
salary and is a well-deserved reward for one’s performance over
and above the annual appraisal.
If you are an editor reading this, this one’s specially for
you! At Crimson, Editors earn a bonus every month.
They receive an incredible monthly incentive based on their
performance for that month.
Getting better at your work? At Crimson, as you progress
through an editor hierarchy and get promoted to an Expert
Editor, your performance is financially rewarded with a direct
hike in your fixed salary.
In addition to the Monthly Incentives and Expert Editing
Component, on completion of every work anniversary, editors are
entitled to receive an additional exponential
Crimson takes pride and pleasure in being one of the few
companies believing in rewarding individuals who are masters
at what they do. If you are selected as an ACE Crimsonite, you
will receive an exciting annual financial
benefit in addition to your annual appraisal and bonus.
When at Crimson, your problem becomes ours. We understand that
everyone isn’t a master at math and we all like saving
our taxes, don’t we? To ensure support to
Crimsonites in this regard, we annually have an investment

We provide medical insurance for Crimsonites as well as their
family members, including their spouse, children, and parents.
We specifically included parents because they
need insurance the most, and policies available outside have
too many restrictions to cover them. The unique aspect of this
insurance policy is that there are no conditions or
pre-testing done for any of the individuals
covered. An Annual Compensation and Benefits Survey Report 2014
by Deloitte shows that only 13% companies in India offer this
to their people.
Crimson’s Maternity Policy offers all our female employees the
time to rest and enjoy their motherhood as per the Maternity

facilities for the mother and child through our Mediclaim
Policy, which covers the new born from Day 1.

his new born too. At Crimson, every male Crimsonite is provided

Crimson’s Maternity Policy offers all our female employees time
to rest and recuperate during this difficult

bearing in mind the pregnancy stage at the time of miscarriage.

be granted a paid leave of 30 calendar days.
At Crimson, we understand the emotional and mental stress due
to death in the immediate family. Paid leave of 3
calendar days can be availed to be with your

Getting married?? To initiate this new phase of your life,
leave up to 28 calendar days can be availed by Crimsonites who

exclusive (additional to the standard leaves), and hence, the
existing leave balance of the Crimsonite will not be affected.

event of the year. It is an umbrella event revealing and
honoring company-wide talent and skill recognition combined

you have an inclination toward understanding how other
departments work, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
We are all ears when it comes to your issues and concerns. At

Crimson supports flexible work timings as we believe in
work–life balance. Crimsonites can start work anytime between 8
am to 10.30 am, after discussion with their supervisor, and
make time for their errands or hobbies.
At Crimson, we believe in keeping the balance between work and
relaxation, and taking planned leaves is the best way to ensure
this. In case there are excess leaves at the end of the year,
unlike most companies, it is paid out on the GROSS salary and
not on the BASIC salary. An Annual Compensation and Benefits
Survey Report 2016 conducted by Deloitte revealed that only
39.1% companies allow leave encashment during employment.
