In keeping with its stated objective of transforming itself into a truly global organization, Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, has been relentlessly driving the agenda of diversity and inclusiveness.
As a result of this concerted initiative, called ‘Project Tejaswani’ - the number of women employees at Hero MotoCorp recently crossed 1000, thereby surpassing a major milestone in this journey of diversity.
Commenting on the occasion, Vijay Sethi, Chief Human Resources Officer and Head of CSR & Information Technology, Hero MotoCorp, said, “It has always been our constant endeavor to nurture a work environment that fosters equal opportunity, empowerment and growth for all. Thanks to the concerted effort involving everyone in the organization, including the personal commitment and guidance of our Chairman Dr. Pawan Munjal and the Leadership Team, the number of women colleagues at Hero MotoCorp has now crossed 1,000 and constantly growing. This is only the beginning, and we would like more women to come and be a part of the Hero MotoCorp family.”
Aimed at creating equitable employment opportunities for women, Project Tejaswani has fostered equality and propagated a ‘holistic workplace’ within the organization. As part of the initiative, Hero MotoCorp has created dedicated career opportunities for women in every vertical and across the hierarchy – right from the shop floor level to senior leadership, thus promoting a balanced gender representation. The Company now has women working on the shop floors at three manufacturing facilities – Haridwar, Neemrana and Halol.
