Special needs employees are marking a new segment for Corporate India. Women employees and
people with disability (PwD) are key to this segment of special needs employees. According to
World Bank, India is witnessing a fall in the number of women in the workforce, ranking the country
at 120th among 131 nations. Further, experts reckon that 10% of a country’s population is
considered to be PwD. While there will be limitations to their careers, organisations must strive to
attract this talent pool by making it a viable environment for people with special needs. Contributing
to these factors is the 3rd biggest cost centre for employers, known as employee transport, which
reduces the company’s cost by 15 to 20%.
India’s GDP growth rate can be boosted if women participation is increased, which is currently
reduced by 10%. Hence, with a host of benefits by organisations, women employees pursue the
corporate race with suitable work environments and flexibilities pre and post pregnancies. Employee
transportation is one area that has been driving the industry and keeping the workforce engaged
and committed. With a secure transportation system, women employees benefit with a well-
planned routing system and a comfortable ride under secure conditions.
Conscious capitalism is pushing companies to look at opportunity driven individuals (ODIs) as an
important stakeholder. Known to have physical disabilities or other conditions like Down Syndrome,
Autism, disabilities in speech and hearing impairment, are being sought after by Corporate India.
Further, political experts have referred to PwD as people with extra ordinary capabilities. Now India
Inc. is discovering good business reasons to embrace PwDs. Apart from the dedication this segment
brings to the workplace with consistent performance, lower attrition, it is a key mandate that
companies seek to attract a better audience connect and brand value. Hence powering them with
user friendly employee transportation will lure this workforce.
