A few reasons why Gender Sensitisation and Diversity Management is highly recommended for your business:

It is advisable to work on prevention to avert tarred reputation and financial fallouts.

It is mandatory – The Sexual Harassment of Women in the Workplace Act requires all businesses with more than 10 employees to establish an Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) to address any cases of sexual harassment in their workspaces.

Increase the morale and hence, productivity – You will probably never have to work out on motivational speeches for your employees if they are assured enough of their safety and have a great workplace environment. And if this is secured, the productivity is guaranteed.

It is cost saving – A safe and encouraging workplace environment has become one of the top most priorities of employees these days and the onus is on the employer to provide the same. While this helps the employee to remain motivated, the employer also benefit from a great relationship with the workforce.

It’s a brand reputation management tool – Given recent high-profile cases of sexual harassment in India, the dominant concern for respectable firms is loss of reputation which can have a bearing on profitability, client loss and bad press.
