Employee Engagement Survey -As part of our endeavour to be an employer of choice and also identify our developmental areas, we internally conduct an employee pulse survey to understand our employees - what motivates them to go the extra mile, what drives loyalty and what genuinely makes and keeps them happy.
The findings of the survey are shared transparently with all business heads and various interventions are implemented.

Keeping in mind how important mental wellbeing is, we have also empaneled counsellors and have various interventions that our employees can avail to be open and speak on any issue they may face. All in an anonymous way.
Sports and Fun Initiatives
Sports and Fun Initiatives: These councils are By the Employees and For the employees. Sports being a key engagement activity at Ambit, apart from male enthusiasts, we have actively encouraged and watched our female employees participate in our annual Cricket Tournament.

Always running, always on the go and keeping employees motivated. The management leads from the top – jet lagged or even a broken shoulder after playing cricket - nothing stops Ashok from running.
