News | 24 August 2021

Hero Electric has introduced ‘Hero Care’, a flexible benefits policy for its employees that takes care of their and their family’s hopes, dreams, and aspirations in different stages of life. The ‘Hero Care’ programme will cover every employee who has completed a minimum of two years in the company, according to a statement.

Naveen Munjal, MD, Hero Electric, said, “At Hero Electric, the health, safety and growth of our performance-driven team matters to us, which is why there is an absolute emphasis on ensuring the growth of an employee entirely on their contribution to the company’s mission. The ‘Hero Care’ programme is thus a family away from home that cares for every step in our lives as we aim to create an environment that makes the work possible with respect and the traditional care for the team.”

“Some of our initiatives that are part of this programme are absolute industry firsts that not only encompass the employee but also put their family at the forefront of their careers. Hero is extremely excited to be launching this at a time when our employees have worked hard over the last two years to bring us to where we are today,” Munjal added.

Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric, said, “Today, we have over 300 employees who have worked with us through this journey to bring it to the position we are at today. Our employees are our family and when we looked at the best practices globally, we decided we had to come up with some of our own that set benchmarks for the industry, just like we did for the EVs.”

“We truly understand the needs and wants of people through different life stages and we want to give them exactly what motivates them to be aligned with the company’s goals. Hero Care is therefore not just a programme, but a plan to help each one of our family members thrive and succeed in an environment that respects each one of them,” Gill added.

Manu Sharma, Associate Vice President – HR, Hero Electric, said, “Hero has always linked the desired results with the utmost level of quality and customer satisfaction. We strongly believe that employees can only be aligned to the company’s goals when they are happy. Giving each one of them an opportunity to shine through merit is the hallmark of our organization.”

“When we analyzed the factors that made a difference, we realized that smaller initiatives like encouraging employees to take up short-term learning courses or encouraging them to take up speaking opportunities made a huge difference in their productivity. We thus set out to create a workplace that truly cares about its employees and launched this programme,” Sharma added.
