HIS VIEW ON GENDER AND PAY GAP

Gender pay parity is a well acknowledged yet persistent issue that industries across the world continue to contend with. I strongly believe that creativity is free of bounds and bias. Great ideas can come from anywhere within a company. In today’s ultra-competitive business environment, it is imperative for companies to treat their employees with respect and integrity, irrespective of gender. Equal pay check is the biggest indicator of fair treatment and equal opportunities for success. India currently stands in the global spotlight for the appreciable growth we are witnessing in the country. Businesses in India must focus on putting their workforce on an equal footing to capitalize this momentum.
