When it comes to development, we believe that no one should be left behind.
That’s why our rural BPO at JSW Shakti (Vijayanagar) has been equipping women with the skills and knowledge to work in the IT BPO industry.
From the time this initiative was conceptualised in 2005 at Ballari, we have empowered more than 1500 women across rural Karnataka and Maharashtra.
What goes around does, inevitably, come around. We’re happy to announce that this initiative has won us the CSR Excellence Award in the Women Empowerment category by Bureaucracy Today Magazine 2017. An award we won, despite being against industry leaders like IL&FS, NMDC, Jindal Stainless and Mahindra.
While we’re proud to receive this award, it has only encouraged us to empower both women and other people across India.
