Underlining its focus on ensuring the safety and security of its employees, MG Motor India is planning a 100-member female associate’s hostel near its manufacturing facility in Halol. Located around 5 kilometers from the carmaker’s manufacturing unit, the hostel will provide accommodations to MG’s associate-level female employees along with housekeeping, food, and transportation facilities etc. and will be operational soon. With female associates accounting for more than 31% of its workforce, MG Motor India boasts the best diversity ratio within the Indian automotive industry – a number that it strives to increase in the future. The new hostel facility aims to provide safe, sanitised, and hygienic living spaces to its female associates. Through this move, MG also aims to significantly enhance the contribution of female associate at its Halol plant.
Speaking on the facility, Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, “With the world facing an unprecedented crisis, it becomes imperative for employers to ensure that their employees are healthy, safe, and secure. Our new 100-member hostel will provide safe, sanitised, and comfortable living spaces to our female associates. The aim is to ensure that our female associates have complete peace of mind as far as their physical wellbeing is concerned. It will also bolster our diversity ratio and further strengthen our ecosystem for female employees.”
