The annual certification from the Great Place to Work Institute recognises Tata Steel’s work towards building an organisation of High-Trust and High-Performance Culture.
Since its inception, Tata Steel has been an exemplary showcase for its worker welfare schemes and has positioned itself as a thought leader for its employee engagement initiatives. The Company has implemented trendsetting policies like extending benefits to LGBTQ+ partners, Agile Working Models and Extended Maternity Leave to create an enabling workplace for all diverse groups.

We recognise that our people are the primary source of our competitiveness who we have always put first in all the initiatives. We have always believed in building an organisation which is driven by employee empowerment and high standard of performance. Tata Steel has introduced several path-breaking policies and practices for various segments of the workforce which has enhanced the productivity and engagement within the organisation. We are sure to strengthen this philosophy, which is fundamental to our way of working, in future as well.”
