Making India a
Healthy Place to work
Leaders across industries are prioritizing employee wellbeing. Let's hear what they have to say about creating a culture fostering holistic health.
PGP Glass Pvt Ltd. (Formerly Piramal Glass)
At PGP Glass, listening to Employee feedback is an integral part of the culture as we believe that there is a strong link between employee engagement and workplace wellness. Through Employee-Leadership connect, we ensure their wellbeing is taken care of and help them play a vital role in helping achieve our business’s vision. This makes them feel valued, empowered, and more willing to invest their time and energy in the Health & wellbeing initiative which inspires them to contribute higher. I owe this achievement to my people who have been an integral part of our success journey. We have not only sustained but grown through greenfield and brownfield expansions that increased employment opportunities along with the introduction of Digital & Analytics Academy to constantly focus on upskilling to improve their employability to the fullest of their potential and meet their aspirations.
Managing Director & CEO
Creating a culture of outperformance and collaboration begins by creating a safe and inclusive environment, a place where every single member of the organization is enabled and supported to be the best version of themselves. More simply put, a critical role of the leader is to help all members of their team shine. And when everyone shines, high performance naturally follows. To ensure a culture of consistent outperformance, agility, and a growth mindset, leaders must use their position of influence and authenticity to infuse the perspective of employee wellbeing in every experience and conversation. And leaders must set this as an example by actively supporting, doing and encouraging this interaction. I am humbled by this recognition and it fuels our mission of employee wellbeing and helps us prepare for glory.

This was the first time that CACTUS has participated in the Great Place to Work® India study to identify “India’s best workplaces in Health & Wellness” and it was a great learning experience. The process forced us to measure outcome of each programs & initiative rolled out over the recent past. The structured survey format helped us view the state of employee health and well-being from the lens of both organization and employees. Going forward, this study will help us benchmark our programs and benefits with the best in the country and also identify our strengths and areas of opportunity. One of our guiding values is ‘Be Happy, Healthy and enjoy the ride’. We believe participating in a survey like this will help us put clear metrics around health and well-being and raise the bar.
General Manager India Operations
The business imperative for health and wellness is well known. For us at Aristocrat, it is not just the business imperative but also the moral imperative that has helped us prioritize health and wellness initiatives for our people. It has positioned us as a caring and responsible employer for our people. An engaged workforce leads to the emotional and rational commitment of our people and helps us achieve better business outcomes.
Managing Director & CEO
I am a firm believer in being ‘fit to win’. Physical fitness has always been an important part of of my aim to perform at my best. Over the past year I’ve also come to realize the importance of mental and emotional health. All of this comes together to form what we call “wellness” at Randstad. Along with the engagement activities including yoga, and Zumba built around physical fitness, we also introduced an initiative called ‘be kind to your mind.’ The leadership team at Randstad India made a clear commitment to create an environment where our colleagues’ safety, health and mental well-being, came before business. Instead of starting our meetings with metrics and spreadsheets, we start with important questions like, “How are you doing?”, and “Let’s talk about some key initiatives around wellness”. We put people first, and business strategy and outcomes next. Over time, the effort to foster a healthy cadence — a healthy mind, body, and a healthy workplace — gradually translated into a culture of caring, compassion and behaviours rooted in the spirit of ‘one Randstad’. And our mantra was born; #InItTogether.
Employee must believe that the organization cares about their overall growth and wellbeing, for them to give their best. Consequently, for a world-class employee experience, employee health and wellness has a deep impact on employee motivation and performance. The current pandemic and the need to alter our personal and professional lives has put more stress on everyone. It is now even more important for us to engage meaningfully with our employees and support their physical and emotional wellness.
For 40 years, we’ve worked at the intersection of health care and information technology to connect people and systems worldwide. We use the latest technology to create solutions that let communities and people engage in their health. Being a part of this pioneering study was welcomed by all our internal stakeholders as this was the only public study in India focused on workplace health and wellness. This was a perfect platform to benchmark with India Inc and get actionable inputs for both leaders and organizations to create a compelling and effective wellness program that fosters a healthy and high-performance workplace culture. I believe this is a great platform that several organizations can leverage to learn and share from each other.
People Partner Lead, India
Our experience on being part of this pioneering study was an exciting and fulfilling journey that we tread along with Great Place To Work, bringing to fore, our values that have never been more pronounced as we brought enhanced meaning to how we lead and care for our people, especially during the pandemic. With ‘employee wellbeing’ at the core of our people-first culture, there was a strong congruence with the six identified levers constituting the workplace wellness index. S&P Global India is honored to be recognized as India’s Best Workplaces in Health & Wellness as we continued to foster a people-first culture.
Forbes Marshall Pvt Ltd
"A high performance culture requires one's members (employees) to be committed and engaged. And, to be both committed and engaged we need to be physically and mentally healthy and happy. This is especially true in times of uncertainty where the uncertainty precipitates stress, as has been the case this past year while dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Providing opportunities and encouraging our members to relax from time to time and improve their physical and mental well being should therefore be a high priority for everyone. Furthermore, including the family of our members in these programs should also be as much of a priority. It then allows for us to be even more focused, committed and creative, all of which are critical ingredients for a high performance culture."
Indegene Private Limited
I am delighted to see how a study solely focused on health and wellness is being conducted by Great Place to Work. This brings employee well-being to the center stage and at the forefront of business discussions. At Indegene, caring is in our DNA, and being recognized for it reinforces our belief of being in the right direction. Studies such as the one at GPTW help you pause, reflect, and look at practices from an external perspective, which is necessary for improving and scaling them. Getting to understand how employees relate to our practices around health and wellness, their opinions and feedback are critical inputs for us to hone our practices further. On both counts, this pioneering study will help the organization and managers focus on employees as individuals, encompassing all aspects of health and wellness. And also drive new initiatives that further enhance employee health and wellness.
“We have always been pro-active when it comes to the health and wellness of our employees. Even before the pandemic, we had quite a robust plan in terms of further improving the overall wellbeing of our employees. Our Chief Fitness Officer has been constantly engaging with our employees to provide them with all the possible support they need to improve their lifestyle. Her role has only accentuated amidst the pandemic. We strive to make CEAT fitter & healthier which will significantly impact the overall performance culture of the company.”
