At KONE Elevator India, diversity and inclusion are inherent parts of the way the organisation works, and continues advancing diversity and inclusion through progressive policies, practices and benefits, professional development and well-being programs, across every level and role. KONE has introduced several key initiatives that help build a women-inclusive workplace including mentorship and wellbeing programs, growth opportunities, amongst many others to ensure work-life balance for them. More importantly, the women already working with KONE India, have been associated for more than decades, and proudly advocate inclusion as equal opportunity in the organisation.
 
Right from 2016, when the list was first introduced to access and encourage workplace gender equality in India, KONE India has been selected every year. It’s a proof of the high ethical principles that guide their belief and practice of an inclusive workplace that empowers individuals.
 
Commenting on the recognition, Mr. Amit Gossain, MD, KONE Elevator India stated, “It gives us immense pleasure to be featured in this esteemed list yet again for the sustained initiatives undertaken to increase women’s workforce participation and fostering a great work environment. This recognition is a testimony of the company’s pioneering initiatives that help women build a successful career and offer them a well chalked out growth path. We will continue to create an atmosphere of inclusion and gender equality and we hope that this will encourage more women to join and stay on in our team.”
 
On the occasion, Mr. MP Saravanan, Director- HR & CSR, KONE Elevator India shared, “We have always taken great pride in our people and culture. At KONE Elevator India, we see diversity as a strength, and we remain unwavering in our commitment to inclusion and gender equality. Each employee is empowered to drive innovation and this helps create an environment where everyone feels they have an equal opportunity to grow and build a career.”
 
Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Saundarya Rajesh, Founder – President, Avtar said, “The half-decade long journey of BCWI, which took us through the deepest alleys of corporate diversity statistics, has indeed been a revelation. From seeing substantial increase in women’s representation to companies increasing their intent towards reshaping their workplace to be gender-inclusive, the study has evolved into handbook of impactful D&I strategies. As per the data from 2020 Working Mother & Avtar Most Inclusive Companies Index (MICI), 33% of Diversity & Inclusion spend in organizations is for D&I learning.”
 
Adding to this, Shubha Barry, President of Working Mother Media said, “Each year, we look forward to celebrating the 100 Best Companies in India by shining a spotlight on the progress women have made in the workforce. We are also excited to reveal the results from our second annual Most Inclusive Companies Index (MICI) in partnership with Avtar. We applaud these organizations’ diversity and inclusion efforts. These trailblazing organizations are paving their way for a more inclusive future.”
