When you land a job with Crimson Interactive you can take advantage of the following benefits and development programs.

Leadership Programs

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 skills to facilitate sustained employee development. Crimson, in collaboration with institutes like the prestigious IIM Calcutta, offers a continuous education MBA program for Crimsonites exhibiting leadership qualities to help them enhance their careers. The program is structured to allow management education while undertaking their professional responsibilities. Knowledge is dispensed by not only the highly regarded faculty but also from alumni and peers from various other industries.
The idea is simple—if you show the spark, Crimson helps you realize, develop, and utilize your leadership acumen.
First-of-its-kind Reward and Recognition Program
The core principle that our “T-Square” (contraction for “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 salary. 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
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Germany
  • Portugal
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 certification for our life science editors recognizes one’s skills as an editor. The internationally recognized BELS certification is a seal on your ability to excel in academic diting.
The Learning & Development Division strives to address the 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 management.

Financial Benefits

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 bonus amount.
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 counsellor on premises for some much-needed expert advice on planning your investments.
As a Crimsonite, you are a vital part of our Crimson family, and so, Crimson will help you in any problem, including financial emergencies. Crimson has an exclusive personal loan policy for its Crimsonites, completely interest-free!!!

WeCare@ Crimson

At Crimson, find a job you love, explore your passion, and pave the future you want.We take care of everything else. We like you the way you are. From basic care like medical and dental coverage to wellness programs and rational leaves, Crimson offers a wide variety of programs through the We Care club. These programs help you achieve a healthy work-life balance.

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 Act. This policy covers care and rest for both pre and post-natal phases, thus helping Crimsonites enjoy this new phase of life. In addition, we ensure that we provide financial facilities for the mother and child through our Mediclaim Policy, which covers the new born from Day 1.
Every father needs to spend quality time with his new born too. At Crimson, every male Crimsonite is provided with 5 days of paternity leave in addition to the standard leaves.
Crimson’s Maternity Policy offers all our female employees time to rest and recuperate during this difficult time. The number of leaves are predefined bearing in mind the pregnancy stage at the time of miscarriage.
Crimsonites who have adopted a child below 13 years of age may 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 family during this difficult phase.
Getting married?? To initiate this new phase of your life, leave up to 28 calendar days can be availed by Crimsonites who are more than a year old in Crimson. These 28 days are exclusive (additional to the standard leaves), and hence, the existing leave balance of the Crimsonite will not be affected.

Fun@ Work

We cover one of your biggest needs at the workplace through some of the coolest offerings. People say we are a great place to work. We are just trying to rack up why. Relax and enjoy your read at the lavish Read Room indoor or cruise the adventurous offsite events outdoor. On top of paid holidays, chill out with your team every once in a month, and join grand dinners every quarter year. At Crimson, forget the notion of ‘a typical day’. From the work you do to the passions you ignite, we’ll keep you on your toes.

Being a language solutions provider, we, at Crimson, are avid readers. We have a vast collection of books in-house, and with your free subscription to our online library, you can order as many books as you like. We also have the regular Crimson Reads – our club of avid bibliophiles who meet to discuss books, books, and only books.
In addition to our free online library subscription, Crimson has an in-house library. We provide Crimsonites access to thousands of books, magazines, and audio books across 40+ categories that meet their professional and personal development needs.
If it’s your birthday, the entire Crimson family will celebrate it with you on every third Wednesday of the month. We also celebrate Christmas, with Secret Santa visiting us every year to give us a chance to secretly give gifts and get secretly gifted presents. During Diwali, our bay decoration competitions end with the entire place looking like a galaxy, and our Garba nights, during Navratri, are complete with Crimsonites enjoying Garba and Dandiya.
At Crimson, we strongly believe that every team is a vital cog in Crimson’s growth. Hence, every quarter, team dinners and outings are organized to ensure team building and team bonding at the restaurant of your choice.
At Crimson, we ensure that each year we travel to different places and let our hair down for two days to relax and rejuvenate. We play games, participate in adventure sports, go trekking, and end with a group photo to capture unforgettable memories of another year gone by. An all-expense-paid trip should relax you enough to be fired up for another year of exciting work.
Crimson has its own internal People Engagement platform that connects employees within Crimson and helps them share accomplishments and accolades and be notified of current events within the organization, industry updates, etc.
Our “CAAN” (Crimson Annual Awards Night) is the most awaited event of the year. It is an umbrella event revealing and honoring company-wide talent and skill recognition combined with extreme fun and frolic. The award function is followed by music, dance, and dinner. It is held at some of the most coveted locations in Mumbai. In 2016, the awards night was celebrated at a beautiful, beach facing restaurant in suburban Mumbai.

Culture

Crimson believes in doing meaningful work. We empower our employees to make a difference and lead it. It drives passion with a purpose. And our award-winning culture makes it possible. Values at Crimson flow from the top down. Our remarkable Open Door Policy ensures that our communications – as well as our doors – remain open for you. From flexible work timings to a dedicated Grievance Redressal Cell, we ensure that you come back to work in a relaxed and rejuvenated state.

Have a suggestion, a business proposal, or a process improvement idea? Ever wondered whether you could approach anyone beyond your immediate supervisor to discuss these at length? At Crimson, of course you can! We encourage a transparent culture where you can connect with anyone at Crimson, irrespective of the designation, and this includes Sharad Mittal (our CEO) too!
Crimson uses a management approach wherein employees are given the opportunity to understand the business at all levels to gain exposure to all verticals across the organization. In case 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, our Grievance Redressal Cell gives you the freedom to voice your concerns and helps us resolve them for you. Our Sexual Harassment Policy is defined to ensure a safe working environment for all Crimsonites.
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.
