HCL gifted Mercedes-Benz cars
HCL had started gifting Mercedes-Benz cars to its top-performers years ago. In 2013, the technology firm gave away around 50 Mercedes-Benz cars to the top-performers but it was soon discontinued. Now, they plan to bring back the reward system to retain high-performing employees. HCL says that it has already submitted the new reward system to gift Mercedes-Benz cars to its employees with its board and a decision is still pending with them.
