The way employers look at employees has changed over the years now. From being just a provider of opportunities to individuals, companies have had to graduate and evolve to accommodate the growing expectations of their talent pool. 30 – 40 years back, skills brought to the table were rewarded with salary. Nowadays, that is not enough. The pay grades have gradually increased and are in alignment with the lifestyle these days not to mention competitive too in the respective markets. But – something is always missing. The human resources teams across time have had so much to learn and unlearn. Salary and leaves were not enough. In came benefits.
