City-based Sathguru Management Consultants, a market leading advisory firm in India has been recognized among the Top 75 India’s Best Workplaces™ for Women 2022 (mid-size) by Great Place to Work® India!
Over the last 38 years, Sathguru has nurtured a culture where diversity is not only embraced but valued; and an inclusive work environment has been fostered with concerted effort. 39% of Sathguru’s workforce is women. In some teams, the percentage of female employees is as high as 94%. This stands out in the continuing milieu of the global corporate landscape where equitable workplaces devoid of gender-based biases are still not the norm.
Under-representation of women in decision-making roles and tapering of the growth curve for female employees is a looming global concern. Sathguru takes pride in the fact that 40% of their Board of Directors are women, every team has exemplary women leaders in senior managerial roles, and about 39% of their female workforce are in leadership roles across departments of the organization. This is testimony to the deep-rooted and long-standing focus on gender diversity and equal opportunity at Sathguru.
“Gender parity in leadership roles is typically attributed to breaking the glass ceiling for women to glide their way to the top. At Sathguru, there is no glass ceiling to begin with. We’ve fostered a culture where every individual regardless of gender, age, race, or religion can make space for themselves. Merit has been and will continue to be the cornerstone at all stages of decision-making at Sathguru,” says Hemalatha Vijayaraghavan, Director of Sathguru Management Consultants.
“We encourage and facilitate women employees to balance their professional and personal lives and have created a safe, equitable, and inclusive workplace that earned us this honourable recognition,” she adds.
Sathguru has also been certified as a Great Place to Work six times in a row from 2017-2023 for its excellence in work culture, trust, camaraderie, maximizing human potential, values, and leadership effectiveness. Being recognized among Top 75 in India’s best workplaces for women is yet another testament to the organization’s incredible work culture.
Yeshasvini Ramaswamy, CEO, Great Place to Work®, India commenting on the achievement said “Our business landscape is changing rapidly as the attitude towards ‘traditional’ ways of doing business is changing. What’s more, globally women have become crucial engines for economic growth. Achieving gender diversity and parity is of crucial importance to improve business outcomes. Women are playing a large role in shaping the future of workplaces.
This is a promising start but there’s more to uncover for furthering the representation of women in decision-making roles. Best Workplaces are leading the way in this regard. Not only do they have a better representation of women in the workforce across industries, but women in Best Workplaces also experience a 7% more collaborative workplace culture compared to the Rest. Congratulations to all the winners for this coveted recognition, the journey of Making India a Great Place to Work For All is only getting started!”.
