#WomanAtWork as Chairman of $108 billion company!!

Can you think of an Empowered Leader as Chairman of an organization with revenue of over 108 billion USD!!

For critics who might think this is a crazy idea, here is a business case (We are all so obsessed with business cases) so here you go.

  • The following list of empowered leaders are running organizations with a combined revenue of over 579 billion USD
  • I am yet to add another 108 billion USD (Tata Group)

t

There has been lot of talks around encouraging more and more #WomanAtWork, Gender Diversity and so on. There is still loads and loads of work that we and companies need to do to prove this statistics wrong. “The World Economic Forum in its Global Gender Gap Report 2015 estimates it will take until 117 years to achieve global gender parity in the workplace.”

So let’s take small yet concrete steps to nurture, encourage and inspire more #WomanAtWork.

Here is a small list of things that you, me and us can do right away:

Celebrate WomenAtWork:

No point giving Gyan!!!! Just pick up 100’s and thousands of inspiring stories from your women employees, celebrate their success stories within and outside your company.

Brand Ambassador and Mentors:

This is a great opportunity for us and companies to identify Brand Ambassadors and Mentors who can guide, nurture and inspire women at work.

Leadership Matters: 

At the end of the day, this is what matters. Rope in your leaders, showcase concrete data points and also involve them in such programs.

Attracting and Retaining Talent:

As a Sourcer and Recruiter at heart, I always believe that this is where all the magic begins. Empower your hiring teams to identify amazing talent out there. Create a list of amazing things that your company does to encourage more Women at Work. It could include policies, flexi timings, transport and so on.

Looking forward to your ideas, suggestions and inputs that can help us all in this journey to encourage more #WomanAtWork

Mother, Our Life Line

Celebrating Mother’s Day is a very modern world concept but a noble one. Moms have always been our lifeline, our support, our mentors, our best friends. We celebrate Mother’s Day this May 8th , since this day is absolutely close to my heart, I thought of sharing some workday ideas with the readers which are easy to implement.

Following are a list of idea that can be implemented very easily and will surely have a positive impact at workplace :

 A thank you note from the CEO or HR sent across to all working moms. This is a great way of reinstating your belief in them and letting them know how much they mean to the organization and how they are an integral part of your growth story

– If possible frame their Family portrait at their desk, nice surprise for them at the start of their day will just do wonders and make them smile for sure.

Invite their family members, especially their kids to office and let them see their work-spaces, meet their office friends and mingle with their peers, colleagues and bosses. Good way of integrating the extended family. You could also have a fun photo booth for the families, they can carry those memories back with them

– Organize a special lunch for all the working moms, if possible, tie-up with different outlets which can offer them discount on products, services. As I am sure, this group wouldn’t mind extra pampering and love.

– If possible invite a keynote speaker who can talk to them about career aspirations, work-life balance and the group can share tips with each other.

– A perfect occasion to launch Day Care Center if at all your company is planning to set it. This can also be a very great retention tool.

Ideally each day needs to be celebrated as “Mothers Day” as they are special. However we tend to forget to appreciate people and relationships on daily basis. This is a good reminder for us to start afresh again.

These are general tips, I am sure there are many more like these. Looking forward to your views around these workday ideas.
