Fineotex not only outperformed the parameters in terms of skill development, training and orientation, job security, work-life balance, job satisfaction, salary and allied benefits, and career growth, but it also showed that it provided its employees with the resources they needed to be productive and deliver those committed results. The organisation was also praised for having an Anti-Sexual Harassment Policy in place, in accordance with the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act 2013, reporting zero accidents in FY21 and having an inclusive Internal Complaints Committee that reviews complaints from all employees (permanent, contractual, temporary & trainees).
Commenting on the certification, Managing Director, Mr. Surendrkumar Tibrewala said, “It is said that success is about skill. Well, that’s only half of the story; success is about people, and the ecosystem you develop with the people provides the kind of skill that success requires. Because we are a global specialty chemical company, striking the correct balance between technical expertise, academia, and marketing, and then coordinating those efforts, is often challenging when factoring in the diverse mix of people participating in the process. I was immensely proud when instead of slowing down we were able to invest, expand and diversify during the pandemic and it’s because we have created a place where passions and contributions are shared and valued above all else. I’d want to thank our employees and applaud the management for making the objective of maintaining the highest ESG standards and pairing expansion with innovation a reality by establishing a fantastic workplace. Our productivity has been rooted in equality, trustworthiness, and non-discrimination. Receiving this certification is a tremendous honour, and we aim to continue to attract, retain, and nurture talent in the future.”
