The policy offers comprehensive medical coverage, including hospitalisation programs, specialised treatments for disabilities, consultations, devices, medicines, day-care support through Kare Home, and ongoing employee assistance programs with Optum


P&G Health India is celebrating Mother’s Day by introducing groundbreaking caregiving policies for its employees. The company recognises the invaluable contribution of all caregivers and aims to provide comprehensive support to employees who care for children with special needs (up to 18 years old). This pioneering policy includes enhanced medical coverage  encompassing hospitalisation programs and specialised treatments for neurodevelopmental and physical disabilities. It covers diagnosis, treatment, consultations, devices, medicines, and day-care support.

Additionally, P&G Health India has introduced a co-pay India Day Care Policy, allowing employees with children aged 6 months to 6 years to enrol their children in recognised and registered day care centres of their choice. These policies are available to all employees nationwide, including field sales employees, empowering mothers and promoting a healthy work-life balance.

Milind Thatte, managing director, P&G Health India, emphasised the company’s commitment to equal opportunities in the workplace. He expressed his delight in extending these day care policies to cover field sales employees, encouraging more mothers to return to work after their maternity leaves. P&G Health values diversity in the workforce and continuously implements initiatives to promote the participation of women across roles and hierarchies. The introduction of these policies is expected to enable employees to bring their best selves to work every day.

Anit Singh, human resources director, P&G Health, highlighted the company’s focus on investing in the well-being of employees and supporting them during important life stages. P&G Health has pioneered several employee-friendly policies, ensuring healthier and happier lives for its employees. Inspired by a strong commitment to inclusivity and equality, the unique day care policies aim to bring joy to parents in need of support.  

These programmes, developed under P&G Health’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative called SEHAT, are implemented in partnership with reputable NGOs.

Thatte further explained the community health projects, stating that the Swasthya Sakhi Programme provides women with affordable screening and diagnostics while promoting women’s employment and entrepreneurship.
