SUPPORT EMPLOYEES IN MANAGING WORK LIFE BALANCE

Aanchal

Maternity Support Programme

Our Maternity Support Program encompasses initiatives and practices to support new mothers achieve work-life balance with beneficiary schemes like added traveling allowance for a comfortable commute, flexibility to work from home to avoid traveling, reduced working hours for better rest, and more.

  • Reduced working hours to 7 hours in the last trimester
  • Work from home (optional) in the last month
  • Transport allowance of Rs. 10,000/- per month
  • Reserved car parking space
  • Maternity Leave of 26 weeks (as per Maternity Leave Policy)

To keep the employee just about updated on any critical developments at the workplace we have the following initiatives:

  • My Saheli-A friend from the team will keep the new mother connected to any critical developments. This is simply for their information and not for any action
  • A gift basket for the new mother and baby, wrapped in love – was an instant hit addition to our policy!!
  • Stay Connected – HR stays connected with the new mother, checking on well-being and progress of mother and child

To return to main-stay is particularly tough for new mothers. To help them seamlessly blend back into the environment, we have the following initiatives:

  • Crèche facility for the new mothers to be able to oversee their little ones at interims
  • Reduced working hours to 7 hours for initial one month after resuming work
  • Counseling sessions with Head HR, easing them into the job and re-instating the support of the Company

Our policies have helped reinstate 98% of our women workforce who return to mainstream jobs within the Company post-delivery.

This, against several other companies, where women extend maternity leave and then take a sabbatical or quit the Company.

To help women with a great work experience we ensure the following:

  • Seek feedback during creation of important corporate decisions
  • Inclusion of equal women in EMPULSE, the cultural committee of the company, so that their voices are heard
  • Late night travel arrangements for women employees
  • Policies focusing on maternity eg. Aanchal etc.
  • Ensuring safe and high quality accommodations during out-station duty

Whistle Blower Policy

Formal feedback mechanisms

Action and assurance are two of the most crucial elements of management that we take extremely seriously. Action is towards unethical practices, and assurance is for the whistleblowers who notify the organization about malpractices. We ensure complete transparency and confidentiality to promote an apprehension-free fearless work environment.

  • A policy that protects and instills a secure and fearless work environment for all employees. As a conscious and vigilant organization, K Raheja believes in conducting business in a transparent manner by adopting the highest standards of professionalism, honesty and ethical behavior.
  • Till date, we have had 2 employees who have made use of this policy, without their identity being disclosed. Because of the level of confidentiality we maintain, our employees feel secure in reporting any unethical, immoral or illegal business conduct.
  • All employees maintain a certain standard of conduct. Employees are encouraged to report any wrongdoing within the company that falls short of these business principles. In its endeavor to provide its employees a secure and fearless working environment, K Raheja has established a “Whistle Blower Policy” at Group Level.
  • Created with the objective of providing a fearless and secure work environment, the transparency and confidentiality to whistle blowers in our policy permits them to notify official authorities about any immoral or unethical activities and/ or malpractices at work, without any apprehensions. They can also do so by being anonymous.
  • The Whistle Blower can raise any relevant concern to the committee or any particular committee member and is assured of complete confidentiality in treatment.
  • Impact of the Program: Impact of these initiatives are that we are able to receive anonymous feedback from employees and act upon on them. These initiatives were started by the HR team but have multiple team members, some even external members.

Structured platforms & mechanism

Policy on Sexual Harassment. Intolerance for any sexual provocation at work

POSH – Policy on Sexual Harassment Preventing and Intolerance for any sexual provocation at work is one of our most seriously addressed policies. A safe and respectful ecosystem is designed only when we treat each other with dignity and respect. A violation of such codes follows strict actions irrespective of the individual. We have established a committee and policy in place with proper guidelines and do’s and don’ts pertaining to such complaints and zero tolerance for such complaints.

There is a dedicated ICC team in HO and a representation of ICC in each site. There is a detailed POSH policy in place in the company.

This policy aims to inform the employees about what conduct constitutes sexual harassment and in the unlikely chance of such an occurrence, to enable a fair mechanism for dealing with such misconduct.

While the policy applies to men and women both on equal grounds at the workplace. This policy mainly protects women employees against any form of harassment at the workplace.

HR Initiatives

Initiative: NEEV:

When we start a journey, it bodes well to have a happy beginning.

K Raheja believes in an interactive and immersive fun-filled introduction process, breaking free of the tedious corporate induction process. Induction is the founding stone of the long-standing relationship that will be shared with the employee. Hence, We initiated Swagatam, which is followed by Neev and The Buddy Program, which includes tech-aided animated videos and added activities for ice breaking.

  • Information on the organization | business verticals | key management | HR policies | organizational processes are shared through an animated video.
  • Employees are introduced to the self-service portal christened ‘Iconnect’. This portal features attendance, salary slips, key personal information etc., and becomes the single dashboard for information.
  • Policies of the Company like code of conduct, safety norms, prevention of sexual harassment at workplace, which are key to their well-being are shared.
  • Employees are introduced to the Performance Management Portal – LAKSHYA. This is a user-friendly, clearly tabulated, real time portal, which marks progress, milestones, achievements etc., along with highlighting expectations from the role.

A comprehensive induction plan is created for every new joinee, where they get to meet and spend time with all HODs in K Raheja , schedule mall visits, do mystery shopping in our own malls to gather feedback for internal teams which facilitates a lot of learning in the initial two weeks of joining. This induction calls for a sign off from the employee ensuring all meetings and to-do are done and that employee has all the information and knowledge transfer to perform his/her job well.

The responsibility of running the corporate induction and creating a customized orientation plan is initiated by the HR team, with support from head of departments, respective line managers. The impact of this program goes a long way, a good start leads to a great journey.

EConnect

Employee connect session

It’s necessary to keep employees up to date about the activities and developments across the organization. We keep horizontal and vertical channels of communication open to establish transparency and seamless communication through EConnect – Employee Connect sessions. With this policy, every employee is addressed, heard, and interacted with through engagement activities.

  • Employees are given a heads-up about EConnect sessions a week prior to the schedule, so that schedules are blocked
  • Employees are addressed in groups, where they are given a low-down on latest policies and key updates
  • Concerns, if any, are discussed and are taken one on one if employees are not keen to share in a forum

The key take-outs of the EConnect are discussed with the Managers and solutions to employees’ concerns sought. We also use these EConnect sessions to organize small engagement activities which enables them to come out of their silos and connect as a team.

India Top 100 Best Companies for Women.

By Working Mother Magazine and Avatar

Women accomplish work goals and develop healthy workplace relationships. They think with both – mind and heart, and their sensitivity, intuition, and emotional intelligence help create a well-rounded workforce. The importance of women in any workforce is debated by none, and we couldn’t be more proud of our award-winning women-friendly policies as we bagged the India Top 100 Best Companies for Women. The third time was a charm, and the fourth was even better!
