The C.K. Birla Group has always been known for its vision and progressive ideas. We as a Group embrace diversity and inclusion at all levels as a strategy to move forward. We realise the need to have women in key positions in order to affect change in the way we work and to leverage the talent they bring in.
Diversity and inclusion is key to our talent strategy. The C.K. Birla Group leaders across companies have pledge to use their influence to create a diverse and inclusive workplace. We are committed to the agenda of 20% by 2020, that is, 20% of workforce being female employees by 2020.
“Diversity at work brings a unique quality to the organisation’s core values and its cultural fabric. We at AVTEC respect unique talents, experiences and viewpoints of employees and encourage different perspectives to achieve excellence. I am personally committed to making AVTEC an inclusive workplace and an employer of choice for all by focussing on exclusive hiring interventions for AVTEC to achieve the mark of 20% by 2020.”
