Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN), India’s leading entertainment and sports broadcast network has been recognised for the fourth consecutive year as an employer with the Best Health and Wellness Initiatives. Awarded by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Chestnut Global Partners (a leading global Employee Assistance Program service provider), SPN features among the 10 best companies in India for its health and wellness initiatives. 

The SHRM India HR Awards have been instituted as an exemplary platform to recognize organizations that put people first, deliver future focused excellence in the field of People Management, and understand the importance of human capital as a key contributor to business outcomes.

Over the years SPN has created top-notch employee experiences and has formulated innovative policies and practices (several of which are industry firsts), to nurture the health and wellness of its employees. Some of these initiatives and benefits include a 100-day fitness challenge, employee assistance program, mother’s room, employee managed groups, mixed martial arts, desktop yoga and flexible annual health checkups along with several other engagement initiatives. These have contributed to positioning SPN as an employer of choice, resulting in consistently high employee engagement survey scores and an enviable voluntary attrition rate. SPN has been recognized as one of India’s Best Employers by AON in 2017, and its Distribution business ranks 5th amongst India’s Great Mid-Sized Workplaces.
