The International Women’s day is an opportunity for us to reflect on various initiatives that we have undertaken in our quest to empower and make a positive contribution to the lives of women at Lumax.
As an equal opportunity employer, we treat our women employees with utmost care and respect. Our care for women employees goes beyond basic initiatives like transport and creche facility for women.
Lumax has an internal app accessed by all employees and is directly monitored by the Group CEO. This platform provides direct access to raise any concern, suggestion and grievance.
Under our unique ‘Nanhi Chaanv’ initiative the birth of a girl child of an employee is celebrated at Lumax by planting a sapling in the name of the child and a token money of Rs 1,100 is given to the child.
Women at Lumax have also entered the supposedly male-dominated departments. We have women colleagues in departments like R&D, Testing & Homologation, Design & Development, Exports, Purchase and Marketing.
We regularly conduct gender sensitisation and POSH (Prevention of Sexual Harassment) programmes. Apart from encouraging and empowering women at workplace, we motivate them to take lead in social development initiatives.
Our CSR initiatives are tailored to suit the emerging requirements of women and girl child. Health check-up camps for diseases prevalent in women are making a marked difference to the lives of women in communities/areas we serve. An adolescent health programme for girls is a step in this direction. Starter kits and fee is paid for enrolment of the girl child to the school we engage with. Girl students are benefitting from our ‘Usha ki Kiran’ initiative for career counselling and scholarship scheme.
On International Women’s Day, we reaffirm our commitment to continue making a meaningful impact to the lives of women.
