FACOR sets benchmark for inclusivity in mining by hiring transgender employees

Bhadrak, June 11, 2024 (TBB Bureau): In a landmark move towards fostering inclusivity and diversity in the workplace, Ferro Alloys Corporation Ltd. (FACOR), a leading player in the ferro alloys industry, has committed to actively hiring talented transgender individuals. With support from senior management and members of the National Council for Transgender Persons and the Transgender Welfare Board, FACOR has welcomed three transgender employees to its security team under G4S.

This initiative, part of FACOR’s ‘Transforming the Workplace’ campaign, underscores the company’s dedication to creating a diverse and inclusive work environment. By enriching its team with unique perspectives and skills, FACOR aims to lead the way in promoting workplace equality in traditionally male-dominated industries such as mining.

Transgender individuals often face significant barriers to employment across various sectors. FACOR’s progressive move aims to challenge these norms and set a precedent for other companies to follow.

FACOR CEO Pankaj Sharma emphasized, “By embracing individuals from all walks of life, including transgender individuals, we enrich our workforce with diverse perspectives and talents, ultimately driving innovation and success. We at FACOR stand strong as the flagbearers of a more inclusive workspace. This initiative also aligns with Vedanta’s commitment to creating a workplace where all employees feel valued, respected, and empowered to bring their authentic selves to work.”

Echoing this commitment, FACOR CHRO Suniti Dhal said, “By actively seeking out and welcoming transgender talent, we are not only enriching our workforce with diverse perspectives and experiences but also reaffirming our commitment to equality and respect for all individuals. Our doors are open to talent from every corner of society, and we are proud to champion inclusivity in our industry.”

As FACOR continues to prioritize diversity and inclusion, it hopes to inspire other companies within the ferro alloys and mining sector to follow suit. By working together to dismantle barriers and foster more inclusive workplaces, the industry can unlock its full potential and drive sustainable growth and innovation for years to come.

FACOR’s bold initiative not only aims to transform its own workforce but also serves as a call to action for the broader industry, highlighting the importance of inclusivity in achieving long-term success and sustainability.
