Tata Steel has been recognised among India’s Best Workplaces: Manufacturing for the year 2019 by the Great Place to Work® Institute. This is a recognition for the company’s high-trust, high-performance culture.
Every year, more than 10,000 organizations from over 58 countries choose the Great Place to Work® assessment for benchmarking, action planning and recognition. Great Place to Work® Institute’s methodology is recognised as rigorous and objective and is considered as the gold standard for defining great work places across business, academia and government organizations.
This year, in India, 108 Manufacturing organizations undertook this assessment, and the Institute identified the Top 25 India’s Best Workplaces: Manufacturing, 2019.
“For us at Tata Steel, our employees have always been the biggest asset driving organisational excellence. Our people practices are driven by the philosophy of putting people first, every time. This has enabled us to create a work environment that is inclusive and nurtures talent to accomplish and deliver to the best of their abilities,” said Mr. Suresh Dutt Triptahi, Vice President, Human Resource Management, Tata Steel.
Over the last 100+ years, Tata Steel has emerged as one of the most employee-friendly companies in the world, and is known for creating industry standards in the field of human resources. The Company has been a pioneer in employee welfare schemes and community initiatives, even before the legislation mandated them. A few of these include the 8-hour work day, Leave with Pay scheme, and the Workers’ Provident Fund Scheme, all of which were adopted by the International Labour Organisation and enacted by the Law in India.
Tata Steel has been constantly innovating and pioneering people practices in the realms of hiring, engagement, diversity & inclusion, rewards & recognition and performance management. In keeping with the changing times, the Company has introduced several path breaking policies, practices and initiatives for various segments of the workforce like 5-day workweek, menstrual leave, paternity leave, adoption leave, satellite office operation, employee assistance programme (tilted UMANG) and Take 2 (to provide a platform to the partners of the Tata Steel employees and women professionals who are on career break) to name a few.
As an equal opportunity employer, Tata Steel has ensured fair representation of people from the under privileged sections of the society. The Company’s Diversity & Inclusion Programme ‘MOSAIC’ is enabling diversity of gender, hiring & inclusion of PwDs (Persons with Disability), inclusion of LGBT and more.
