Program

Are you having questions about your new life in WaterHealth?

Initial few days for a new recruit are the most critical ones. The level of comfort and ease of settling down in the first few days determines how he/she views him/her (self) within the organization. In order to provide a comfortable and supportive work environment to a new employee, WaterHealth runs an initiative called the Buddy Program, through which each new employee is assigned a Buddy. The Buddy supports the new employee through the initial few difficult weeks, helping him/her to settle down and adjust to the organization and its culture.

  • To provide the new employee with a point of contact for general queries regarding day-today operational issues, [such as the location of facilities, information processing requirements and relevant company policies] and
  • To help the new employee integrate with the company by providing access to someone who is familiar with our culture, attitude and expectations.

Buddy program therefore is an easy way to settle the new employee into the company and equip him/her to deal with other unknown issues. This program runs both in WHIN and its subsidiaries (WHG and WHN).

BOOT Camp

WaterHealth India (WHIN) recognizes the need to recruit and train fresh graduates (Management/Functional/Engineering trainees) for leadership roles to support the Company's accelerated growth. This is done through a unique program called the "BOOT Camp".

Traditionally the US Marine Corps used BOOT Camp as a rigorous training program and mental endurance to transform a recruit into a bonafide 'marine'. The training is intense and challenging, the challenge comes as much from the arduous physical training as it does from the psychological adjustment to survive in a hostile environment.

Similarly, WaterHealth runs the BOOT Camp program under three [3] different categories, General, Skill and Technical each of these tests the mental strength, skill, adaptability and attitude of the trainees. The BOOT Camp therefore churns out proverbial 'Soldiers for WaterHealth', completely trained and armed. Currently this program is being conducted in India, it is being planned to launch it in subsidiaries (Ghana and Nigeria) soon.

Employees Satisfaction Survey

WaterHealth conducts employee satisfaction survey annually across all its subsidiaries India, Nigeria and Ghana. Through this survey WaterHealth measure the satisfaction rate among its employee.
