Tata Steel wins ‘Best Company to Work for’ Award
Mumbai: Tata Steel has been conferred the ‘Best Company to Work for’ award in the core sector at Business Today’s Best Companies to Work for Survey 2016 award ceremony held recently here. The award was received by Suresh Dutt Tripathi, Vice President, Human Resource Management, Tata Steel from Suresh Prabhu, Union Minister for Railways.
The steel major has also featured in the top 25 overall (across sectors) list of Best Companies to work for.
The award is based on the 15th edition of Business Today’s annual ‘The Best Companies to Work for in India’ Survey taken across the country. Its purpose is to understand the perceptions and aspirations of India’s employees across industries and map these against what they see in their companies, sectors and even across sectors. It provides an insight into how industry at large and in specific verticals can align their employer brands to aspirations and thoughts of the Indian workforce.
On the occasion Tripathi said, “We are proud to have been recognized as the ‘Best Company to work for’ in the core sector. Tata Steel believes that we must lead by example, and this award demonstrates the fact that we’re paving the way for fresh and qualified talent to join the Company. We realize that our employees are the most valuable assets as they play a major role in building a competitive advantage for the company’s business globally. Welfare, wellness, and development of people is in the DNA of Tata Steel, visible through our pioneering people practices that uphold Tata values through transparency and fairness.”
With an aim to include more women in the company’s workforce, Tata Steel recently launched the Women of Mettle Scholarship programme for engineering students. The women leadership programmes – Tata Steel Ignite & Tata Steel Engage are aimed at grooming women leaders of future. These initiatives largely encompass Tata Steel’s belief in keeping employees contented and motivated to contribute to business goals of the Company in the long run.
