Dedicated to Inclusivity, Encora Contributes to the Vision of Making India a Great Place to Work for All
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., October 11, 2022 – Encora, a global next-gen product engineering provider, today announced its offices in India have been certified by Great Place to Work® Institute as one of India's 2022 Best Workplaces™ for Women. Among the 1,122 organizations studied and considered for this award, Encora received recognition as one of the top 100 organizations in the large company category and excelled across the five characteristics of what makes a High-Trust, High-Performance Culture™: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
“I am beyond ecstatic that Encora has been recognized as a Great Place to Work for Women in India, 2022,” said Anitha Sarathy, Head of People & Culture India. “I would like to thank all our female colleagues for their steadfast dedication, unwavering effort, and boundless enthusiasm, all of which contributed to the success of this endeavor.”
To determine which organizations truly reflect the spirit of India’s Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work® India requires each participating organization to conduct an anonymous employee survey. This provides the institute with a better understanding of the experience for all employees within the organization. An assessment of practices is conducted separately through a research-based framework that seeks to understand if the organization aims to create a gender-equitable culture for all employees. In addition, organizations are required to meet the following criteria: Women employees constitute at least 10% of the workforce, and they must share at least 70% positive feedback on the Great Place to Work® Trust Index© assessment, a globally-renowned framework used to measure the employee experience.
Encora met these criteria through its dedication to creating an environment where all employees are happy, feel safe, and are provided opportunities to grow and express their individuality. At Encora, achieving a state of equal ease of access to resources and opportunities including economic participation and decision-making for men and women is paramount. Valuing different behaviors, aspirations, and needs equally, regardless of gender, is standard practice. Encora received this recognition in India due to its commitment to strong organizational culture and fostering a work environment of belonging and inclusiveness where individuals with diverse backgrounds and talents can be their best. As the company has grown from 2,400 employees to more than 7,500 worldwide in the past three years, it has evolved its practices to ensure its culture will positively adapt alongside its growth.
Some of the specific practices Encora has implemented to accomplish this goal include work-life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs, equal pay and conditions for all genders, employer and employee contributions to the communities Encora serves, and an expectation that all employees have a responsibility to always treat others with dignity and respect. Encora also requires that all employees attend and complete an annual diversity awareness training to enhance their knowledge to fulfill this responsibility and to ensure a culture where people feel safe, respected, empowered, and motivated to bring their best selves.
