"These employees are good performers. That's why they have stayed with us," said Amit Sinha, vice-president-business and people at Paytm. "It makes sense to reward people who have grown with the organization. In a startup scenario, there is pressure and people expect quick results. Success does not come overnight and we are here for a game changing business, which will be built over years. We want our employees to build their stories and careers with us as we go along."
