Zensar, a technology experience company has launched a programme called Enliven, where the organisation is exclusively hiring women who have had to take a career break due to their personal life circumstances. The programme has been designed by Zensar to help such women to restart their career and create a smooth transition into corporate life. As of now, the programme has only started in India.
“A gender-balanced workforce is crucial to an organisation’s success. Women bring skill, experience, perspective, and diversity to Zensar. The Enliven initiative will facilitate the reintegration of women into our workforce. We hope Enliven helps debunk the myth that a career break is a life break. I look forward to the successful rollout of this program,” says Ajay S. Bhutoria, CEO & MD, Zensar.
Apart from hiring women with a career break, the Enliven programme at Zensar also focuses on hiring people with disability and individuals from the LGBTQ community.
“Enliven is one of our key D&I initiatives, as we expand our vision to create gender balance and bring in more inclusive practices while creating a progressive culture. We have been consistent in our pursuit of creating an ecosystem designed to help these women professionals take the right strides in their career re-launch. We have already inducted a dynamic set of women associates as part of this initiative and look forward to adding more to the team. Our diversity hiring practices follow global best practices, as we constantly try to learn and evolve to be a more gender-diverse, inclusive company,” shares Vivek Ranjan, CHRO, Zensar.
Other facets like equal pay and promotion, work flexibility, wellness resources, and benefits uphold Zensar’s inclusive practices. The company has introduced gender pay gap fitment, zero discrimination in promotion, performance rating processes, and learning platforms exclusive to its women employees.
