Diversity is just as crucial to building a successful business as it is to building a vibrant culture.

    At Tata Advanced Systems, colleagues of diverse backgrounds and abilities contribute unique viewpoints and perspectives to all aspects of the business, from Business Development to Program Management. Diverse colleagues offer a more personal understanding of our customers’ needs and concerns. Diverse teams in Tata Advanced Systems are more collaborative, more accepting of existing difference, and more apt to embody balance between prudence and risk-taking. Diverse teams are also more effective in a global environment, helping make Tata Advanced Systems the world leader in Aerospace and Defence and enrich lives.

    Tata Advanced Systems’ Diversity and Inclusion team focuses on developing and implementing programs that:

    • Help colleagues appreciate the value of diversity and experience Tata Advanced Systems as a fair and supportive environment in which to purse a meaningful career.
    • Hold Managers and leaders accountable for creating inclusive and equitable workplace.
    • At Tata Advanced Systems, colleagues of all backgrounds and abilities will find leaders who inspire them to top performance: managers trained to develop and nurture diverse talent: and a culture committed to helping each colleague build a fulfilling career and reach his or her full potential.

Tata Advanced Systems strongly believes that increasing the representation of women in the workforce not only provides access to a broader talent pool but also drives business success and leads to a more balanced and collaborative culture.

As a testament to this belief, the company has chosen to build up the number of women in the industry’s traditionally male-dominated space — the shopfloor.

Increasing diversity and inclusion (D&I) on the manufacturing shopfloor is a huge challenge for most companies. Tata Advanced Systems took on this challenge knowing that this would help drive a stronger D&I culture across the organisation. "In Tata Advanced Systems, gender diversity at the shopfloor is vital to our success. Not just because it’s a laudable goal, but because we believe it makes business sense," says Sukaran Singh, MD & CEO, Tata Advanced Systems.

Tata Advanced Systems is a supplier to many of aerospace’s biggest names, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky, etc. Till early 2017, Tata Advanced Systems’ Hyderabad facility had minimal representation of women in the workforce engaged in producing engines, wings, fuselage and other aerospace structures. The company had women on its rolls but with very limited presence in what is called ‘touch workforce’, people who work hands-on with the products.
