Tata Steel named Top Employer for LGBT+ inclusion

Tata Steel has been named a Top Employer for LGBT+ inclusion by India Workplace Equality Index (IWEI).


IWEI Top Employers is the definitive list showcasing the best employers in India for lesbian, gay, bi, trans employees.


Atrayee S Sanyal, Vice President (Designate), Human Resource Management, Tata Steel, said: “At Tata Steel, we believe a diverse and inclusive environment enables employees to express themselves openly thereby adding to the perspectives and collective wisdom of the organisation. In our experience, workplace diversity not only attracts the best talent, widens the talent pool but also adds to the organisational culture and business results.


“We are proud to feature amongst the IWEI 2020 Top Employers for LGBT+ inclusion. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to foster a culture of allyship to actively promote LGBTQ+ empowerment and build a benchmark workplace” , he added.


This is the inaugural IWEI Top Employers list, featuring 52 organisations that have been recognised as ‘bronze’, ‘silver’ or ‘gold’, depending on their final score. Organisations participating in this Index make it clear that they support equality for LGBT+ people at work.


Taking a step further to reinforce the culture of inclusion and to enable LGBTQ+ employees to have equal rights at the workplace, Tata Steel rolled out a new HR policy last year that enables colleagues from the LGBTQ+ community to avail all HR benefits permissible under the law for their partners (people of same-sex living together) like coverage for child care leave, new born parent leave, medical benefits, joint house points, employee assistance programmes, domestic travel policy, health check-ups, transfer and relocation benefits, honeymoon package and more.


In line with the Company’s vision of enabling workplace for all diverse groups, in May 2018 Tata Steel launched WINGS, a LGBTQ+ employee resource group.
