Vinayak Deshpande, Managing Director – TATA Projects, said, “The Ginger hotel project is progressing well under the leadership of an all-woman team. This is reflective of the culture of the Company, which encourages women to embrace diverse roles in the workplace. The success of this team is important for motivating more women to build their careers in the construction and engineering sector. Another key feature is that new technologies such as BIM and 3D are also being deployed to ensure on-time and quality construction.”

The company has implemented various other industry-leading practices such as ‘Extended Maternity Leave’, compulsory crèche facilities, medical reimbursement for family expansion including IVF treatments, amongst others. Tata Projects’ policies have created platforms for women employees to participate in different functions of the business at all levels, gain experience in their fields, and achieve their career aspirations.
