Tata Steel has been certified as a Great Place to Work organisation in India for the fourth time by Great Place to Work® Institute. The annual certification from the Great Place to Work® Institute recognises Tata Steel’s work towards building an organisation of High-Trust and High-Performance Culture.
Since its inception, Tata Steel has been an exemplary showcase for its worker welfare schemes and has positioned itself as a thought leader for its employee engagement initiatives. The Company has implemented trendsetting policies like extending benefits to LGBTQ+ partners, Agile Working Models and Extended Maternity Leave to create an enabling workplace for all diverse groups. The Company’s Diversity & Inclusion Programme ‘MOSAIC’ is enabling diversity of gender, hiring & inclusion of PwDs (Persons with Disability), inclusion of LGBTQ+ and more.
Atrayee S. Sanyal, Vice President, Human Resource Management (Designate), Tata Steel, said: “We are honoured to be recognised and certified as a “Great Place to Work” for yet another year. We recognise that our people are the primary source of our competitiveness who we have always put first in all the initiatives. We have always believed in building an organisation which is driven by employee empowerment and high standard of performance. Tata Steel has introduced several path-breaking policies and practices for various segments of the workforce which has enhanced the productivity and engagement within the organisation. We are sure to strengthen this philosophy, which is fundamental to our way of working, in future as well.”
During the pandemic, Tata Steel has undertaken and ensured all preventive and pre-emptive steps related to employee safety. This includes introduction of the POD concept - a modularised form of teams which enables social distancing and minimises the number of workers gathered in one place. The Company also introduced scientific contact tracing through ‘Suraksha Card’, replaced biometric attendance by thermal scanning and radio frequency identification (RFID), to ensure employee safety. Tata Steel recently introduced an Agile Working Model which enables employees to work from any location.

Great Place to Work® Institute’s methodology is recognised as rigorous and objective work culture assessment process. It is considered the gold standard in identifying and recognising great workplace cultures.
