Women comprise less than 2% of workforce of leading companies

Leading companies such as Adani Ports, Bajaj Auto, Grasim, UltraTech and Hero MotoCorp comprises only 2% workforce. Bajaj Auto employs 67 women, or 0.7% of its 9,000-plus workforce, while Adani Ports has just 12 women (1%) among the 1,257 staff on its payroll. Hero MotoCorp has just 88 women, even though the company has 7,000-plus employees. A recent study mentioned hat FY15, women comprise 18% of the workforce of Nifty companies. Public sector units like ONGC and Reliance have 6.6 and 40.8 percent of total employees as women. To increase the women employees there is a need for change in culture from campuses to workplaces.
