Leadership & Advisory Support

Putting in place inclusive practices and  process through leadership support:

We have always been cognizant that in absence of a  conducive and enabling environment none of the  strategies could be implemented or sustained in a  longer run. Our leadership’s focus and commitment  towards the agenda of inclusion & diversity enables a  strong supportive base for all the other efforts. We  have put in place several inclusive practices and  processes that are aimed to foster Inclusiveness such  as:

 

  • Maternity/Paternity Benefits
  • Women in Leadership Program 
  • Day Care Policy
  • Special Travel policy
  • Restricted Holidays
     

Culture & Mindset

Valuing  Individuality  and  Building Belongingness through unlearning biases:

One of the biggest challenge is to overcome the  beliefs and unconscious biases that resist inclusion,  which can be changed only through focused  interventions around mindset and culture. Culture is  built on the foundation of people, and hence our  initiatives are directed to bring the change in people.  A few people can act as catalyst to change the  mindset of a larger base, leading to a change in  culture. We continue to strive towards creating a  sense of belonging for every employee to become an  INCLUSIVE ally through an array of activities such as:

 

  • Sign Language Workshop
  • Gamification/online quizzes
  • D&I Talk Series
  • Sensitization programs on unconscious bias
     


 

Recruitment & Selection

Winning The Diversity Talent War:

In our endeavor to infuse gender equality and aim to create a more sustainable talent pipeline, HMCL always strives to align its diversity and recruitment strategies. This is important since diversity efforts operating in a silo will not achieve the desired goal. In order to meet the dual demands of an increasingly diverse talent pool and rapidly-changing work landscape, we do lot of things such as:

 

•Project Tejaswini [Women @ Shopfloor], a program specially seeded to pace the presence of Women across our plant locations. Starting with zero women at the shop floor at the beginning of FY'16-17, Hero has seen the landmark milestone of 1000+ and counting!

•Incentivizing recruitment consultants for Diversity hiring.

•Campus Outreach, whereby Campus helps serve as a nodal route for us to strengthen our Diversity talent. We have empanelled with few "women only" engineering colleges so as to build a strong pipeline.

•Refreshing our interview processes to make it more inclusive and bias-free.  The ‘Cerebral equality’ is what we want to focus upon in the long run where we provide equal opportunities to all.


 

 

 

 

An equal world is an enabled world. In order to manage Diversity focus, we adopted an integrated approach wherein we targeted recruitment initiatives, education and training, career development, and mentoring programs to increase and retain workforce heterogeneity within the organization.

 

 

 

While the focus stayed on increasing Diversity representation, our Vision was crafted to ensure the ‘Inclusion’ aspect, so that the efforts could be sustained for a long term and it becomes a Culture in Hero MotoCorp rather than a flavour of the year.

In sync with the D&I Vision, are our three pillars: namely Leadership and Advisory Support, Recruitment & Selection and Culture & Mindset, that serve as overarching guidelines for various activities and initiatives

 

 

 

Our consistent focus, and an all-inclusive traction across the three pillars of D&I, saw our overall representation of women in workforce cross an important milestone of 1000 numbers and counting.
