Part-time Work

<div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 1rem;">Women employees requiring to take care of infants at home for longer periods because of family challenges are allowed to opt for serving part-time for up to one year as a special dispensation to such employees. Such a policy helps employees to take care of their special duties and at the same time provides a guarantee of continued service and thereby financial support.</span></div>


Helping Others

<div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 1rem;">SEWA encouraged its employees to reach out and help migrant workers move back to their home, feed people in need and help reach out to daily wagers in need of food. They will be collecting and publishing the efforts of such employees in their quarterly magazine ‘Sewa Suwas’ to recognize their efforts of serving others.</span></div>
