Work with the Best Fintech In India which prioritizes the mental well-being of its employees

Mental health has always been an essential aspect of overall well-being. Although mental health has taken on new significance today, it is only recently that the corporate industry has started to prioritize it in their workplaces. However, at Mintoak, mental health has always been a priority and will continue to be so.

We, at Mintoak, recognize and appreciate the impact that personal well-being and positive mental health have on individual motivation and fostering an energetic team. We have also realized that one of the easiest and best ways to let our employees know we care about their mental health is to be open and communicative about mental well-being. Also, according to Mintoak, fostering an environment where workers can honestly address mental health difficulties with one another can lessen the stigma linked to them and provide them with the assistance they need.

Simple things like offering employees the flexibility to choose their preferred mode of communication through email, text, chat, or face-to-face communication allow them to feel valued. Several other ways through which Mintoak prioritizes mental well-being are -

Encourage Employees to Volunteer

We believe in creating a culture that encourages employees to pursue volunteering for social causes that they believe in, right from animal welfare to children’s education, bringing solar electricity to remote villages, climate issues, ethnic injustice, or any other social issue that our employees believe in. Shared causes like these help strengthen the bond between employees and the company and contribute to the greater good of society.

Why Paid Time off from work?

One of the crucial aspects of promoting the mental well-being of Mintoakians is having paid leave policies in place. Paid time off allows our employees the flexibility and time they need to take care of their personal and family needs, manage their health, and refuel. Mintoak understands the value of paid leave policies and provides a variety of options to assist our employees in effectively managing their work-life balance.

Paid Leaves Offered At Mintoak

We offer a variety of paid leave options, including casual leave, sick leave, compassionate leave for bereavement in the case of the death of a loved one, paternity leave in addition to maternity leave, and privilege leave for vacations. These leave policies help employees manage their work-life balance and take time off for personal or family-related reasons without fear of losing their job or income. Usually, when our employees take time off, they return to work feeling refreshed, recharged, and with lots of sweets and snacks for everyone.

Casual leave is usually granted to Mintokians for personal reasons, such as attending a family function, taking care of personal matters, and more. This type of leave allows Mintoak employees to take time off without using their regular leave balance. Casual leaves can be availed for a day or even more. Casual leaves at Mintoak give employees the flexibility to attend to personal matters without using up their accrued privilege or sick leave.

Sick leave is an important part of our employee wellness program, which supports the physical and mental well-being of our team members. At Mintoak, we understand that employees may need to take time off from work to recover from an illness or injury. Sick leave policies help employees manage their physical and mental health, reducing the risk of burnout and other health-related problems. At Mintoak, employee health is our first priority.

Compassionate leave policies provide employees with the time off they need to grieve the loss of a loved one. We understand that our employees need personal space at difficult times like these to grieve and heal.

Paternity leave is offered by Mintoak to provide fathers with the time off they need to bond with their newborn child. We encourage fathers to take an active role in their child's upbringing and support their partners during the early stages of parenthood.

Maternity leave allows new mothers to take time off from work to care for their newborn child and recover from childbirth. At Mintoak, we recognize the importance of supporting our employees during life-changing events, such as the birth of a child. We offer up to X weeks of paid maternity leave to our female employees. We also provide support and resources to our employees, including free consultation access to gynaecologists and consultants, cashless hospitalization, and health insurance through our healthcare partner Onsurity.

Furthermore, our maternity and paternity leave policies reflect our commitment to promoting gender equality and supporting our employees in achieving a healthy work-life balance. At Mintoak, we remain committed to supporting the needs of our team members throughout all stages of their lives.
