Tata Power, Marico, TCE, Uber, and Volvo joined the list of 25 companies declared ‘India’s Top Safest Workplaces’ at the recently concluded KelpHR PoSH AWARDS 2022. The honor came at the event hosted by KelpHR – a company focusing on creating safe, happy, and inclusive workplaces through best-in-class HR practices.
KelpHR PoSH AWARDS reflect the growing importance accorded by companies towards ensuring that their workplaces are among the safest in the country through the adoption of best practices in PoSH (Prevention of Sexual Harassment). KelpHR, the organizing body received registrations from start-ups, limited-liability partnerships, Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) as well as large conglomerates for these awards. The decision was made on the basis of their PoSH compliance, active interest in the cause of workplace safety, and other broader indices reflective of their culture.
Participants were judged on a two-level detailed transparent and objective evaluation through a seamless and sophisticated digital infrastructure. Each organization was asked to fill in a comprehensive questionnaire. It was submitted with relevant supporting documents for validation. The top shortlisted organizations additionally had to participate in an employee survey that had to be answered by a minimum number of employees. The final scores were assimilated to declare this year’s top 25 Safest workplaces.
“We’ve seen a jump in the number of nominations we received for these awards this year over 2021. This indicates that more organizations are stepping up and becoming consciously responsible for creating a safe work environment for their businesses and people to flourish. We congratulate our winners which include organizations of all sizes from small to large across varied industries, for setting the right precedent and encouraging more workplaces to carry forward this baton,” said Smita Shetty Kapoor, CEO, and Co-founder of KelpHR.
“At TCE, our diverse workforce strengthens our culture which is grounded in equality. The safety and well-being of our workforce is a core tenet of the cultural paradigm. It is our constant endeavor to foster openness and provide a caring and safe working environment for our employees, where they are encouraged to bring their best selves to work. Our commitment towards creating an inclusive workforce has been reinforced today through the KelpHR POSH awards, and we are honored to join the ranks of the Top 25 companies who are leading the way forward as exemplars for other organizations to rise to the occasion,” said Nidhi Mehandiratta, CHRO & Chief Ethics Counsellor, Tata Consulting Engineers Limited.

By 2019, KelpHR had become synonymous with safe and happy workplaces; so, it was only natural that customers reached out to discuss the emotional/mental well-being of their employees. Responding to the needs of Clients and Society, KelpHR branched out into designing effective Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) to ensure the mental well-being of employees.
