Building employability of PWD by changing MINDSETS in driving inclusion
Under the theme of unleashing talent and touching lives, an agenda was initiated to conduct surveys of schools & NGOs and identify best suitable workforce for our business and create an employment opportunity for the neglected segment of society. With help of our internal support team and external agencies, Raychem RPG identified a workforce, assessed and modified work premises and facilities to make them accessible to PWD.
Aligning internal business stakeholders on the Inclusion Agenda
The company arranged several ‘changing mindset’ workshops. Continuous interaction and counselling of parents helped in removing barriers from their minds and bringing them on-board on this endeavour. Employees engaged with PWD members were trained on sign language to enhance the level of communication.
Bringing the right fit through a structured interview process including dexterity tests, personal interviews and medical fitness tests, helped in checking PWD members’ alertness and responsiveness to situations.
LGBTQ + hiring
Raychem RPG empowers and leads by example. At our Halol, Gujarat manufacturing facility in 2021, we began a positive step towards empowerment and inclusivity in employment and since then we have included 3 members of the LGBTQ+ community in the Production department, with an aim to increase in the future.
A diverse mix in talent leads to immense outcomes for individuals and the organisation and inculcating this diverse mix is what Raychem RPG is perpetuating.
