Startek® (NYSE:SRT), a global customer experience (CX) solutions provider, today announced that it has been recognized among India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™- Top 5 for the second consecutive year in this category. Startek was also recognized as one of India’s Best Workplaces™ for Women 2022 – Top 50.
The Great Place to Work® Institute’s study exploring India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™ is the only study capturing the voices of historically excluded groups (HEG), including women, employees who identify as being part of the LGBTIQA+ community, persons with disabilities, veterans, employees returning from a career break and those from marginalized socio-economic backgrounds. To be eligible for this study, organizations were required to have historically excluded groups make up at least 10% of the total workforce and be accredited for inclusive practices.
“As a People First organization, Startek is focused on living its core values by seeking out associates’ opinions, giving equal opportunities to all, being respectful and treating everyone with dignity,” said SM Gupta, Global Chief People Officer at Startek. “Startek is proud to be an employer of choice for current and aspiring employees across wide-ranging communities, identities and genders. Being recognized in these awards is a testimony to the way Startek engages talent and builds competitive advantage through its people to achieve larger organizational goals. It is an honor to be recognized by the Great Place to Work® Institute.”
Eligible organizations were further assessed on consistency in employee feedback, inclusive practices, and HEG representation to determine the list of India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™ 2022. The application process comprised of a detailed HR practice audit and an anonymous survey of employees. Organizations were evaluated through two lenses: Inclusive Practices and Employee Feedback on key dimensions that impact workplace diversity, equity and inclusion.
India’s Best Workplaces™ for Women 2022 evaluated 1,122 organizations via anonymous feedback from employees and used the Trust Index© Survey to determine the finalists. The evaluation criteria required that women must comprise at least 10% of the employees within the organization and women employees must share at least 70% positive feedback in the Trust Index© Survey.
