We select our labour force on the basis of individual capability. We provide all our staff with a fair and adequate standard of earning, which has always been above the minimum figure for wages set by the Government. Annual Day Annual day celebrations are held every year at Stone Age. A myriad of cultural programs are held on this day, which also includes the award ceremony for the best staff performers in various departments. The festivities are topped off by a gala dinner. This not only helps build a bond between labour and staff but also gives public recognition for good work.

This is why we have incorporated the use of a suggestion box which is taken very seriously. Each suggestion is awarded by a fixed amount and if the suggestion is approved and implemented by the management, the person giving the suggestion is suitably rewarded. No Child Labour Stone Age strongly condemns use of child labour. Our facility has been inspected and approved by the labour department of the Government of India and has been certified that it does not use any child labour. Health and Safety We at Stone Age strive to meet the highest possible standards of health and safety. Our hygienic and safe working conditions match the best in the world, and it is our constant endeavour to better them. Clean washrooms, which are inspected 3 times a day, are just one aspect of our commitment to give our work force a top class working environment. Our staff is issued with the most up- to- date protective gear that includes protective footwear, gloves, goggles, hard hats, amongst various other safety wear.
