Uflex, the Indian multinational that offers flexible packaging materials and solutions, is celebrating the achievements of the women working at its plants across the globe, through #BreakingTheBarrier series. Following the positive response to the earlier India edition, it has now come up with the global edition called #BreakingTheBarrierGlobally.
Through this series, the Company recognises the exceptional women who have made an indelible mark with outstanding accomplishments within its global workforce.
Chandan Chattaraj, president – human resources (India & Global), UFlex, elaborated how “packaging, has suffered from a lack of gender diversity for many years” primarily due to the “nature of work involved and the lack of right women talent”.
He went on to say that UFlex has witnessed “the value of the contribution the women employees bring to the workforce and organisation at various levels,” first hand. Acknowledging how “these women have climbed the ladder of success with their spirit, aptitude and hard work,” Chattaraj states that Uflex believes “recognising the value an employee brings, irrespective of their gender”, and when such appreciation is applied to women, “that recognition becomes an even more powerful force for equality, one of the critical purposes to achieve through this series.”
Chattaraj admitted that “With the earlier series showcasing our domestic women talent, we have been receiving staggering feedback from employees as well as more interest from women candidates for roles that were often considered to be the province of men”.
He is confident that in times of challenges,”having a diversity of voices can bring innovative solutions”, and this platform helps “highlight the ethnic diversity we bring in with our talent we acquire in each of our operating countries”.
Through #BreakingTheBarrierGlobally, Uflex presents the inspiring journeys of its women employees with the hope that it will motivate more women to view the sector as a potential career option.
