FACOR Breaking Barriers by Hiring Transgender Employees

Bhadark In a significant stride towards fostering inclusivity and diversity in the workplace, Ferro Alloys Corporation Ltd., a leading ferro alloys company, has announced its commitment to actively hiring talented transgender individuals. With the support of senior management of Member of the National Council for transgender persons and Member of Transgender Welfare Board, FACOR has onboarded three employees, joining the company’s security team under G4S. The onboarding of LGBTQIA+ professionals at the company strengthens the commitment of FACOR to pioneer ‘Transforming the Workplace.’ This initiative highlights FACOR’s dedication to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment and enriches the team with unique perspectives and skills.

This progressive move reflects the company’s dedication to creating an inclusive work environment and underscores the growing momentum towards diversity in traditionally male-dominated industries such as mining. Despite progress in recent years, transgender individuals continue to face significant barriers to employment in various sectors. However, FACOR is determined to challenge these norms and lead by example.

Mr. Pankaj Sharma CEO FACOR said, “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.”

Committing to the cause, Mr. Suniti Dhal CHRO FACOR 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 break down barriers and create more inclusive workplaces, the industry can unlock its full potential and drive sustainable growth and innovation for years to come.
