I would also like to thank the entire Tata Steel fraternity for their contribution to ensure a stellar performance in the recently concluded TBEM assessment. We should take pride in the fact that we have been recognised as a ‘Benchmark Leader’ with a score of 755. This is something we should all take pride in. Apart from this, past year also saw Tata Steel becoming the only steel manufacturing company to have three of its manufacturing facilities being recognised as a Global Lighthouse by the World Economic Forum. We were recognised at the Group level with 3 Tata Innovista Awards, and we were also recognised as a Great Place to Work for the fifth time. These achievements and recognitions are a reflection of your efforts to make our Company more resilient in the face of difficulties and more agile and adaptive of change.”
