THE BUSINESS OF DIVERSITY

Helping people connect with each other furthers the goals of an organization, strengthens its business partnerships and creates positive change within the community. While the impetus for diversity programs begins with desirable social and political goals, the strategic commitment needed to make it a part of the company’s business strategy can come only from the highest levels of an organization.

DIVERSITY MANAGEMENT AT RELIANCE ENERGY LIMITED

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

Reliance Energy Management Institute (REMI) looks after the training of the managerial staff Versova Technical Training Centre (VTTC) looks after the training of the technical staff Managers can also have special training programs arranged if required by the employees.

LABOUR UNIONS

It forms a connecting link between the regular workers and the upper management. The contract labours have unorganized labour unions to solve their problems.

Responsibilities of Labor Union

Responsible for the protection of the workers who are not locals. To improve the working conditions of contract labors. Responsible for the promotion of the temporary labors. To determine proper wage rate for the employees.

APPRAISAL SYSTEM

For non management cadre:
• • Years of service. Looking into Domestic Enquiry initiated/Misconduct (if any).

For management cadre:
• • Yearly appraisal system Promotion generally happens once in two years

CRITICAL EVALUATION
Reliance

Very limited diversity management practices More responsibility on labor union than management Many unorganised labor unions instead of a single authority. A positive aspect- clearly defined criteria for promotion.

CRITICAL EVALUATION
Hyatt Hotels

 

Dedicated council for diversity management. Proper channelization of efforts. Equal opportunities presented to all (Ex: Hotel in Saudi Arabia) a country-specific council could be an improvement over the existing practices.

INTROSPECTION

Are we accepting the uniqueness that our coworkers and guests bring into our places of business? Are we giving equal opportunities to women- or minority-owned firms on vendor contracts for everything? What are we doing to bring about the positive changes that will ensure a steady supply of qualified employees, loyal customers and trusted business partners from the communities that surround us?
