The company went on to add saying that it would grant more time for employees in the first year of parenthood by letting himself more flexibility in its ‘Work from home’ option.

Company is also sincerely working towards creating an inclusive workplace where each and everyone can actually feel that one is an important part of the company. According to the company, support groups for employees like new parents, cancer patients and survivors, and fitness & lifestyle groups are also being created. Apart from this, LGBT committees have also been formed across geographies.

“These groups share stories of community members to the larger audience to create cultural assimilation and sensitize people. Tech Mahindra is also in the process of adding a gamification element to the ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ training to create a seamless and immersive experience for all employees,” the company added in a statement.

Harshvendra Soin, Chief People Officer, Tech Mahindra, said, “As a ‘company with a purpose’, Tech Mahindra is excited to embark on this transformational journey of empowering our associates by keeping their needs foremost.”

Whether we are delivering value to our customers or empowering our associates to RiseTM, Human Experience (HX) underscores every step of our interaction journey.”
