At SEWA Rural, a voluntary development organization involved in health & developmental activities in the rural tribal area of South Gujarat, a system of small note called “chitthi” has been in practice since early days of the organization. All employees are aware about this practice and are encouraged to write their feedback, grievance and opinions on this small note which is displayed in every office. Such simple initiatives, where employees can freely express themselves at work, build a culture of trust and promotes openness in communication.
Spiritual atmosphere. Clean company. No caste or religions discrimination. No age group discrimination. Will be appreciated for good work.
Every worker behaves with love, respect to another worker. There is no discrimination of high - low amongst workers. All can get solutions to their tension questions by taking heaps of their superior. That's why I feel my organization is an excellent place to work. I like working here.
