Sikkim has seen a significant shift from an agro-based economy to an industrial economy in the past years. The shift axiomatically prompted an entry of women into the formal workforce. Both our plant (unit I and II) witnessed this transition too. At present, about 30% of the workforce in the age group of 25-30 years comprises women in this plant. Their roles are spread across all functions of the plant including core operations. To support this shift and encourage further absorption of women into the workforce, the following initiatives in the form of support services were undertaken:
I started my journey with Zydus Wellness Products Ltd. in 2015 as a Casual Worker and have since grown to become an Executive in Finance. Zydus has played a crucial role in enhancing my knowledge, skills and abilities, and I am deeply grateful for this opportunity. As a woman, I can confidently say that Zydus is an excellent company to work for. The facilities provided and the encouragement given to women through various activities is truly remarkable. The friendly and cordial atmosphere at work makes me feel at home, surrounded by supportive colleagues.

Just over a year ago, I was a fresh college graduate, struggling to find a job. Fortunately, I landed a job at Zydus as a Casual Worker, and today I hold the position of Senior Executive on a permanent basis. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a part of Zydus, as every role change within the company has helped me build my knowledge and confidence. Throughout my transitions, my HOD has been a pillar of support, helping me to reach where I am today. Zydus has provided me with ample opportunities to grow and flourish in my career, and I am grateful for this enriching experience.
Having been associated with Zydus for over seven years, I have come to admire the company's priorities, insights, and culture. I started as an officer in the HR department, initially as an off-roll staff in 2015, and was later confirmed. I am thrilled to say that Zydus provides numerous engagement activities for women employees, including annual sports events, picnics, and Women's Day celebrations. Women at Zydus can work with a sense of security, as the company prioritizes their safety and provides excellent canteen and transport facilities. Working with the Zydus team has been an outstanding experience overall, and I am grateful for the enriching opportunity.
