Tata Technologies to hire 1,000 women engineers to promote gender diversity
As a move to promote gender diversity across its workforce, Tata Technologies Ltd on Tuesday (May 30) said it aims to hire over 1,000 women engineers in 2023-24.
The global engineering and product development digital services firm has launched its gender diversity-focused hiring campaign while encouraging women to join it for engineering a better world, Tata Technologies said in a statement.
Through its RAINBOW programme, the company said it has focused interventions on onboarding more women and parallelly creating support frameworks for them to succeed.
Under this programme, there will be concerted and focused efforts to attract and onboard a diverse talent pool, said the company. It added, “The company aims to hire 1,000 (plus) women engineers in FY24, to strengthen its gender diversity ratio further and has identified specific opportunities for women…”
It will also focus on career growth by “grooming women leaders for tomorrow through the LeaderBridge-WINGS program, a six-month developmental intervention aimed at helping women employees develop their leadership potential further and excel in their careers,” the company said.
Besides, Tata Technologies said it is creating more platforms for employee participation and dialogues “with an aim to break the bias and build a culture of inclusivity ground up”. The company is also focussing on an enabling environment aimed at creating a conducive ecosystem and infrastructure that nurtures a diverse workforce, it added.
Tata Technologies, in February last year, announced that it would hire at least 1,000 more people in FY2023 than its planned recruitment of over 3,000 innovators over a 12-month period to fulfil the requirements of customers as its business growth accelerated.
