Employee Value proposition
Work life Balance
Flexible working conditions
We grant the facility to all our employees with flexible working hours, and work from home if the need arises. The company also has permitted to work from home, in order maintain the culture of proper work life balance, for many, the physical proximity to family and the convenience of being at home are tremendously comforting at times, basically at ISM our intention is to create a working framework that suits the employee the best and makes them the happiest
Work environments have a significant impact on how well employees are associated and connected with the culture of the company. Starting from displaying the core values that highlights our vision can generate a better understanding of where our company is heading to, and reminding employees how the company should be portrayed
We work closely with a dedicate team of technical experts, after a recent expansion, doubling our office space in 2015, we rebranded our work environment to create an inspiration to all. The environment is bundled with openness, creative meeting room names carrying a concept of Hollywood movies and a bold office space featuring inspirational ‘values’ (Our core values) and stimulating spaces for a bright spark to enjoy
We always value the extra work of an employee. weekends and mercantile holidays are considered to be officially holidays, however in a case an employee works on such day, as a mean of rewards we grand the employee a special leave. employee can apply “Leave in Lieu” approved by the supervisor and relevant BOD, within 30 days If the leave is not utilized, it will be compensated as,
✓1.5 times of a normal day salary for a weekly holiday
✓2 times of a normal day salary for a mercantile holiday
CelebrationsCelebrating achievements at work is a significant part of the productivity cycle. Without taking a moment to celebrate victories both large and small it becomes all too easy to lose sight of what you’re all working towards. Therefore, at ISM we believe that Celebration is a chance to take a pause, to reflect on success and revel into our employee accomplishments.
Teams go out for dinner each quarter to stimulate team spirit among team members. We also grant our employees to celebrate after completing major projects.
ISM celebrates every Friday night. work life balance is an important factor we concentrate and emphasize more on, social life which is also a part of work life balance is enhanced through every Friday night parties.
