Mindtree’s diversity and inclusivity charter focuses on four pillars which we call “EDGES” – Ethnicity, Disability, GEnder and Sexual Orientation.
Our inclusion framework is driven by our reasonable accommodation policy. In addition to this, we support accessible infrastructure at all our facilities and provide accessible technology and information systems. We look to identify job roles suitable to persons with varied forms of disabilities to facilitate the individual’s career stability and growth. Our growth and expansion overseas provides us with a platform to generate local employment and capitalize on a talent pool of diverse nationals.
Mindtree understands that work-life balance can be a challenge, specially for women. So they have the option to avail a special needs leave. There has been a move, over the past few years, to extend this benefit to everyone. This could encompass specific needs, such as a desire to study further, take time off for social work, family care, personal value addition through teaching assignments and so forth. This would provide them with the flexibility to attend to their personal needs and pursue a career at the same time. Mindtree plans to extend the special needs leave to all Mindtree Minds.
Baby’s Day Out
New mothers often face the difficult situation of leaving their newborns at home or in a crèche while they go to work. To help young mothers, Mindtree offers them an innovative facility called ‘Baby’s Day Out’. This is a special room that enables mothers to work even as they keep a watchful eye on their kids. New mothers can also avail the option of reduced work hours, half day / half work week.
Mindtree’s crèche, Little Critters, is a day care facility within the campus, run by a professional team and a caring staff. This helps employees with children to balance their responsibilities between work and dependent child / children.
