There were days when people used to send letter by registered post to make sure it reaches the destination.

presentation1Though theoretically the salaried class strives for job satisfaction throughout its career, the candid fact is that it is the pay cheque that plays the pivotal role in deciding the job engagement and its future. Orthodox organizations design their pay slabs and fit in the talent according to their capabilities and experience however professional companies hire the talent and fix the salaries according to the competence levels of the hired personnel.
