Our commitment to spreading Happiness through Wellness begins with our own people. We believe in diversity and women empowerment and continually support the cause of women. We, at Himalaya, take immense pride in our women workforce who work round-the-clock to provide herbal solutions for ever-evolving consumer needs. Our association with Shell Mobility India is a small gesture to appreciate the diverse rolesthat women play in their day-to-day lives to help shape the future of ourcountry.”
Speaking on the occasion, Sanjay Varkey, Director, Mobility, Shell India, said, “Shell continues to stand for powering progress, and empowering women has been one of our key commitments. Shell Mobility in India has always encouraged women to take up roles in all functions of the business. While the journey has not been easy, I am proud to say that we currently have circa 22% women as a part of the frontline champions at our stations. Our strong culture of care and safety also enables us to make everyone’s life journey better. We have empowered women across our network, and there are stations where the operations are run entirely by them. We also have an all-women crew that installs canopies at our sites under construction. As a token of our appreciation, we wanted to pamper our women service champions on International Women’s Day. We are extremely glad to have associated with Himalaya for this; a brand that has a similar brand ethos as ourselves.”
