The company said it would grant more time for employees in the first year of parenthood by allowing more flexibility in its ‘Work from home’ policy.

Company is working towards creating an inclusive workplace where everyone can feel that one is an integral part of the company. Support groups for employees like new parents, cancer patients and survivors, and fitness & lifestyle groups are also being created, according to the company. Besides these, LGBT committees have also been formed across geographies.

According to the company,

“These groups share stories of community members to the larger audience to create cultural assimilation and sensitize people. Tech Mahindra is also in the process of adding a gamification element to the ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ training to create a seamless and immersive experience for all employees.”

“As a ‘company with a purpose’, Tech Mahindra is excited to embark on this transformational journey of empowering our associates by keeping their needs foremost.”

He said, “At Tech Mahindra, we live by the formula of HX = f (UX, CX, EX,… ) that is, Human Experience is a function of {User Experience, Customer Experience, Employee Experience}. Whether we are delivering value to our customers or empowering our associates to RiseTM, Human Experience (HX) underscores every step of our interaction journey.”
