Culture

Continuous development and reskilling: Upskilling and reskilling of the women workforce to ensure that they don’t lose out on any opportunity is key to empower them. For Women returning to work  post a  break, there are structured training modules available to them to come up to speed.

Under the scanner we have the other flexi options in terms of approving mini sabbaticals for women to continue with higher studies and then join back after a year, or if they would like to take 6 months off from work to address a personal situation, the organization will support it.
