Acknowledging, understanding, accepting, valuing & celebrating differences among people with respect to age, class, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race and sexual orientation are the diverse factors which are valued and respected at more.
Our values being the bedrock and diversity being the primary driver; Aditya Birla Retail Ltd's vision to be a premium global conglomerate with a clear focus on each business is a REALITY..
It is also vital that leaders to recognize their own cultural biases and prejudices. Diversity is not about differences among groups, but rather about differences among individuals. Each individual is unique and does not represent or speak for a particular group, hence the Diversity Committee at Aditya Birla Retail Ltd. was formed to achieve these prominent goals.
The Diversity Committee is comprised of members of senior management who will initiate, implement & review all workplace diversity initiatives.
Key purpose of the diversity committee
To institutionalize a "culture of inclusion" where embracing varied perspectives is an integral part of our business tactics, from daily decision making to strategic planning & career development.
The aims of the diversity strategy are to:
- Respect and value differences with respect to gender, race, age, nationality, religion, sexual orientation & ability
- Ensure dignity at work for all our employees
- Make full use of the talents of all the workforce
- Prevent acts of discrimination, segregation, unfair treatment, and other negative or demeaning behaviours
- Be open and positive in our communications
Going a step ahead, we believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, the diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures lead to the creation of a better work place, and ultimately achieve success. Employees' strength from different cultural, linguistic and national backgrounds provides valuable knowledge for understanding complex international markets.
At Aditya Birla Retail Ltd., we have embraced 'diversity' in all that we do and define it as "Thinking & Working together beyond functional silos, hierarchies, businesses & geographies. Celebrating differences to garner synergy benefits, whilst encouraging a "WE" feeling". By giving all our employees as well as potential employees a culture of diversity & inclusion, we intend to have an unparalleled Employee Value Proposition that would be difficult to beat. Diversity enriches our performance, the communities in which we live and work, and the lives of our employees.
