The value of this recognition is particularly empowering for a large and employee-centric organisation like Tata Steel which is built on decades of trust. Today, employers not just in India but globally must continuously work towards raising and meeting the standards of work environment to attract, engage and retain the best talent to remain competitive. This recognition will further reinforce our commitment to create a work culture that is inclusive and nurtures talent to accomplish and deliver to the best of their abilities.”
Commending Tata Steel’s HR practices and a work culture that embraces diversity at all levels, Great Place to Work® Institute said: “Tata Steel continues to inspire with its people-friendly, progressive and robust HR programs. From multiple initiatives in the area of affirmative action, with special focus on the tribal community, to be sensitive to the needs of the LGBTs, Tata Steel has showcased what a truly inclusive organization looks like. The work environment challenges and nurtures its people in equal measures. Opportunities for learning and growth are ample. The many engagement activities ensure the feeling of one giant family.”
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), deployment of women workforce in mines and on shop floors in all shifts, LGBTQ+ inclusive policy, 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 LGBTQ+ and more.
