22nd September 2022, New Delhi, India: Great Place to Work® India has announced India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™ 2022 on 22nd September 2022. This is the 2nd edition of India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™. The prestigious award ceremony occurred during the Great Place Inclusion Summit 2022.  Multiple organizations were assessed as a part of this research, based on which, the Top 5 have been identified as India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™ 2022. To be eligible for this study, the organizations were required to have historically excluded groups constitute 10% of the total workforce, and be accredited for inclusive practices, apart from the workplace experience of the historically excluded communities.

The Great Place to Work® Institute’s study on India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™ is the only study in the country that captures voices from historically excluded communities. This year’s study represents the voices of over 68,000 employees of which 33% come from historically excluded groups – women, persons with disabilities, employees who identify as being part of the LGBTIQA+ community, opportunity-deprived Indians, and employees from marginalized socio-economic backgrounds.

The Great Place to Work® study substantiates that the structure of the practices, especially in integrating, developing, and supporting diverse communities, along with leadership action, are key differentiators of the Best Workplaces, and are far superior to the rest. Research highlights that the higher the experience of bias at the workplace, the higher the intent to attrite. Thus, the Best Workplaces foster a listening culture, that allows them to take the necessary action to create a great workplace experience For All™.

We congratulate the Best Workplaces for continuously striving to create inclusive ways of doing business, and hope this inspires others to join the journey of making India a great place to work for all”.
