"Companies are offering joining bonus as demand for skilled workforce is high, at times there are crucial positions to be filled for which companies cannot wait to get people on board," executive search firm GlobalHunt India's Director, Sunil Goel said.
"On an average, firms are doling out between 10-20 percent of annual CTC to retain senior employees. Maximum and highest joining bonuses are being offered in BFSI sector," Goel said. In many cases, joining bonuses are paid by the firm, when an employee loses out on benefits (such as bonuses) while leaving the existing company.
Experts also opined that joining bonuses are not included in an employee's CTC and companies' have different terms and conditions for such bonuses. Companies usually dole out joining bonuses as 'a one-time payout... over and above the salary as cash. Hiring as well as salaries is expected to surge as much as 20 percent this year.
