D&I vision

Tata Motors, an organisation of significant global aspiration has embraced diversity and inclusion at all levels as a strategy to move forward.

When Tata Lead – the Tata group’s diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiative – was launched in 2014. Gender diversity being the immediate area of focus, Tata Motors responded by forming a diversity council at apex and unit levels, which is tasked with increasing gender diversity in the organisation through various initiatives and actions. Leadership tracks the results of these activities to measure progress and take corrective action.

Diversity at work brings a unique quality to the organisation's core values and its cultural fabric. With a variety of opinions, perspectives coming from different age and gender groups, the company's path to encourage and nurture innovation becomes easier. At Tata Motors, we see diversity and inclusion as a source of strength, thereby leveraging it for our future success and growth. Come home to Tata Motors and experience the difference.

Empowering women

Indian culture is undergoing a transitional phase where womenfolk are being celebrated for their talents beyond the excepted norm and gender-based chores are slowly fading away from our society.

  • Adopting a Kid

    Introducing a new life into your own is not only a special moment but a start to a special journey altogether. We support the concept of adopting a child and understand various dynamics that need to be resettled with new responsibilities. Therefore, Tata Motors provide paid leave up to 3 months to employees post child adoption.
  • Work-life Balance

    Tata Motors offers an encouraging workplace for women who enter the motherhood phase. With various options in hand such as flexible work hours, work from home or part-time work, women employees on their way to becoming mommies can easily manage their work-life balance.
  • Valuing Motherhood

    New mothers are eligible for 6 months paid leave, which allows them to enjoy the new phase of life without any stress of work. Tata Motors has installed crèche facilities which allow the new mothers to bring along their infants at the workplace and monitor them on a time-to-time basis while managing their work alongside.
  • Sabbatical Policy

    We encourage women employees to pursue the desired course they feel can help their career growth or a hobby which can be long pending, or just take a break from work to rejuvenate. Our sabbatical policy is easily accessible to all the women employees to be leveraged for their personal or professional growth.

Women development programmes and initiatives at group level

    - Manasi Aryamane, CVBU, Sales & Marketing, Mumbai

  • "An overwhelming time since the beginning, could not even feel properly when ‘Tata Motors’ that just came for campus placement has become a blaze in my heart. Learning is not just technical now; it has become more of life lessons. Everybody understands the word ‘responsibility’ but TATA makes you feel it more closely. How we take care of safety culture in plant is something to be very proud of. It is just our daily habit now!"

    - Meetu Chauhan, CVBU Operations, Pantnagar

  • "After 6 months of being on maternity leave, I was both happy and apprehensive about resuming work. Happy because I knew I could contribute to my workplace in a positive manner and apprehensive as I was not sure how I would be able to manage the dual responsibilities of a working professional and a mother. Thankfully, Tata Motors gave me the liberty to work half a day. This was a confidence boost for me as I could now appreciate the pleasures of being a mother as well as an employee. This policy may come across as a small endeavour to support working mothers, but for me, it was an invaluable one as it contributed immensely to my happiness."

    - Munmun Kedia, Corporate Human Resources

  • "Tata Motors has allowed me to unleash my potential. SCIP is a wonderful initiative for working women who wish to strike work – life balance, manage home and kids without compromising on their career aspirations. It has allowed me to unleash my potential to the fullest besides making me a super mom at home. Kudos to Tata Motors."

    - Rina Shrivastava, SCIP (Consultant)

  • "In a dynamic industry like ours, challenges and excitement is guaranteed. Tata Motors is one company that gives you a free hand if you show the inclination & drive to perform. During my stint with the company, I have been given opportunities to handle varied roles. With a refreshed product line, Tata Motors has also revamped the workplace environment to reflect the vibrancy and a forward looking mind-set – a snug fit with our futuready philosophy."
