Firms need to be constantly vigilant not only to cut-down its rising overheads, but also to focus much attention on matters like, risk and disaster management, business continuity planning, value creation and to gear towards the growing concern on sustainability.

However, in order to carry out these tasks, you need to employ professionally qualified well experienced staffs by paying attractive remuneration package, in par with the industry average along with fringe benefits and company’s contributions to statutory provident funds etc. The bottom line of this practice is adding a permanent overhead in the month end budget at a time when the companies are striving hard to fight against the price war to grab the market share to outperform their competitors.
