POSH at Work
We believe that sexual harassment at workplace does not only cause mental and/or physical damage to the person harassed but also seriously curtails opportunities at work by creating a discriminatory work environment. Through POSH at Work (www.poshatwork.com) we, therefore, partner with organizations (corporations as well as educational institutions) for effective and efficient compliance with the law against sexual harassment i.e. the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 and other related laws. We believe that, in order to ensure equal participation and equal opportunity at work, it is extremely important to do away with discriminatory behaviour and re-instil the faith of employees/workers in the organization and this can be achieved by complying with the POSH Law.
Child Safety at Work
We believe that, child sexual abuse (CSA) is the social exploitation and victimization of a child by an adult, adolescent or another child. Compared to adults, children find it much more difficult to disclose abuse due to several reasons. An offender can be a child’s known or total stranger. A perpetrator need not necessarily be an adult. Also, it’s not always a male who is a sexual offender. Similarly, it’s not always a girl child who is the victim. We view such matters extremely seriously as they not only lead to illegal acts but also result in long term trauma for the child continuing to their adult life as well. We support organizations & institutions in their efforts towards a harassment free environment (www.childsafetyatwork.com). We believe that creation of awareness on POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act) and training of those involved in redressal mechanism is a must for a healthy and safe environment for Children.
Mental Health at Work
At Mental Health at Work (www.mentalhealthatwork.life), we believe in nurturing mental health and wellbeing of everyone at the workplace. Our experience as counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers have taught us the value of sustainable and consistent practice in building and maintaining positive well-being of all. As one’s well-being is influenced by environmental factors, it would be pertinent for systems and organizations to create space for a healthy dialogue and make efforts towards ensuring that wellbeing is held as a core intention alongside workplace deliverables. We believe that the impact of doing so is manifold as it ensures that employees and systems are functioning at their healthy, optimum best enhancing connectedness, efficiency and productivity.
“Mental Health at Work” aims to assist individuals to work on themselves for developing healthy coping skills and mindful living; and organisations to build healthy practices to create an environment conducive to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing through:
- Training and capacity building of leaders and other key stakeholders
- Counselling and therapeutic support
- Access to supportive resources to achieve one’s wellbeing goals
Inclusion at Work
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion although used together, are very different terms with different nuanced implications in the workplace environment. While Diversity represents the full spectrum of human demographics such as caste, race, religion, gender identities, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, culture and persons with physical or mental disability etc., Inclusion, means that every individual must feel valued, respected, accepted, and encouraged. Equity, further, refers to fair treatment for all and means working towards elimination of unfair biases, stereotypes or barriers that may limit an individual’s inclusion on any level.
We believe that individuals operating in equitable and inclusive spaces feel they belong and not only perform as their authentic self but also lead to growth of the workplace on several levels. To support organizations with their Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Goals, we have created Inclusion at Work (www.inclusionatwork.life).
