Employees, especially freshers are usually concerned about the salary they get in hand and not really keen on deductions for ESI and PF as they do not promise immediate returns. Employers are usually not keen on providing them either as it requires time, effort and money to enforce it coupled with the fact that the employees are not keen on it in the first place. However after having implemented such a policy in Zyxware for the past two years we have come to understand its significance and the reasoning that gave birth to them which has led us to write about it.
There are some things about running a company that you never think about until you run one. Some of these might look so insignificant and irrelevant in running a company that you would want to put them in the low priority list. One simple example is the need for a logo and a corporate motto. You can start a company without either of these.
One of the key elements that helps in improving the efficiency of a company is its time management. An organization with a good and well managed time schedule will be able to achieve success in its areas of operation. Proper time management is one key factor required from all the employees across all the departments.
One of the simplest HR issues that a company has to handle is managing leaves. Initially we did not have a fixed leave policy and leaves and holidays were granted on a need basis and on short notice. However as we grew we realized the need for systematizing this to be able to manage and plan our activities and projects.
When we started Zyxware we had no clue as to how to start a company, how to and what to document, how to do our accounting and stuff. We had to undergo a process of trial and error to figure out what are the things we were supposed to do as a company. We don't want another entrepreneur to waste his/her time in doing what we have done.
We started our hardware division with a vision to bring genuine, quality products at the lowest possible prices to our consumers. This policy document deals with all these three aspects of our vision statement.
One of the most common questions we hear from potential customers who come to buy PC's or Laptop's is whether we will be installing Windows XP on the computers we assemble. Our answer has been the same - "Yes we will, if you pay for it". We would like to clarify our policy regarding piracy. We understand that piracy is illegal and we will not be doing anything to promote piracy.
