India is at the cusp of a revolution. With a burgeoning youth population, the potential demographic dividend is huge. But the promise of this cannot be realised without inclusive and equitable growth.
India has historically been particularly poor at gender inclusivity. Equal opportunity to both genders is a prerequisite to the progress of the country, and it is important to recognise the benefits of such equality and take concrete steps towards creating it. A key aspect of this is to build diverse workplaces – spaces for people of different genders, backgrounds, and perspectives to create holistic value.
The benefits of diverse workplaces are numerous and well-substantiated in research – from increased productivity to greater resilience, companies and economies at large all stand to benefit from greater and more active participation by women. However, in order to encourage such participation, public and private spaces must be physically safe and inclusive. They must make people feel physically safe and allow them to bring their opinions and ideas to the table uninhibited and unrepressed.
MMTC-PAMP is committed to this – creating a safe workplace, conducive to innovation. The company believes in proactively pursuing the objective of a diverse and engaged workforce, through a strong, process-driven approach to employee welfare and safety. They particularly focus on gender diversity, since women make up half the population. MMTC-PAMP is an equal opportunity employer, ensuring fair pay and growth opportunities for their entire workforce, across levels and departments. They are firm believers in diversity and inclusion, and bring the best of global practices to their workspaces.
