Life at Tata Chemicals


IN THIS SECTION

Learning, Inclusiveness & Trust, Fun and Empowerment are elements of LIFE that are embedded in our people practices and initiatives.

People are at the heart of Tata Chemicals’ vision of being a sustainable company with deep consumer insights and engaging relationships. We have continued to invest in building capabilities for better understanding of our customers, in research and development of innovative solutions, digital marketing and to provide collaborative platforms for employees to engage and share ideas.

Learning

Learning extends beyond the classroom through on-the-job trainings, exposure to latest technology, networking opportunities in trade and professional bodies, access to online learning platforms and nurturing internal trainers. For identification of leadership capabilities, we use the Corporate Executive Board (CEB) framework of ability, engagement and aspiration. Leadership capabilities are enhanced using the 3E framework of Experience, Education and Exposure. Our internal Management Development Programme (MDP) is one of the mediums to provide a structured learning environment to build these skills using a blended approach of classroom training, simulations, action projects and e-learning.

We provide employees opportunities to explore career mobility options within the organisation and within the Tata Group. There is exposure to latest technology and forums for networking to strengthen subject matter expertise.

Inclusiveness & Trust

An underlying philosophy that shapes our employee policies is that we trust our people to do the right thing. Our policies include flexitime, work from home, auto approval of leave, quick reimbursements of claims and initiatives like unsupervised pantry. We have introduced flexi-benefits allowing employees to choose pay components to suit their lifestyle.

We have adopted a Diversity Policy with focus on 4 pillars – Disadvantaged Communities, Disadvantaged Regions, Gender and the Differently-Abled. Extended maternity leave as well as flexible work hours for new mothers are some of our key initiatives for retention of women. Seamlessly Harnessing Internal Expertise (SHiNE+) is our Internal Job Posting cum Employee Referral Programme which also articulates the push towards diversity.

Fun and empowerment

We have many collaborative platforms for creating an environment of fun. Oorja, our annual cultural festival, Stepathlon team based wellness initiative and Employee Volunteering Programmes are a few examples of such initiatives. To promote balanced work environment, we have transitioned to a 5 and half day week for all our plants and have adopted a new business casual uniform to make it more appealing to our millennial workforce at our sites. All major festivals are celebrated with a lot of gusto in our offices and townships bringing together people.
