Media Release | 3 Nov 2023
The Best Companies for Women in India (BCWI) study is in its eighth edition this year and is the most comprehensive gender analytics exercise in corporate India. More than 350 companies participated in the study, which evaluated companies on their efforts towards gender diversity and inclusion, including workforce profile, policies for recruitment, training, retention, advancement, safety, security, flexible work, parental benefits, work-life programs, company culture, and management accountability.
Manish Tandon, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Zensar, commented, “We are honored to be recognized as one of the Top 100 Companies for Women in India and an Exemplar of Inclusion. This recognition underscores our commitment to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace for all employees, regardless of gender. We believe that a diverse workforce is essential for our client’s success, and we are committed to attracting, retaining, and developing top talent.”
Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Saundarya Rajesh, Founder-President, Avtar Group “Gender diversity among the 100 Best Companies continues to increase. The average representation of women (overall) is an inspiring 36.9% this year in 2023 up from 25% in 2016, at the time of the launch of the study. At the Top 10 companies, average women’s representation reported in 2023, is at 41.7%. At this current rate, a 50:50 gender balance at Best Companies will be a reality by 2030 – a much sooner time frame given the post-pandemic repercussions.”
Vivek Ranjan, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Zensar, said, "Zensar has publicly committed to achieving gender diversity and balanced leadership in our workplace. Our aim is to attain 40% gender diversity by 2030. Benchmarking studies such as the Best Companies for Women in India provide valuable insights into our strengths and areas for further improvement. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Avtar Seramount for recognizing our endeavors and facilitating the creation of a more inclusive working environment."
