Case Study - CSR initiatives of Thermax
As a signatory to the Code of Conduct for Affirmative Action proposed by CII and ASSOCHEM, Thermax is committed to make a conscious effort, without compromising merit, to bring in greater representation of Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) in its new hires at all levels.
Thermax supported and sponsored the 10-month internship programme conducted by Centre for Youth Development and Activities (CYDA) for young graduates belonging to SC/ST and socially deprived sections of society. The internship gives dalit students knowledge, skills and practical training to work in the development sector and allied fields such as media, journalism, etc.
As part of providing job oriented training and other skill development programme, Thermax, along with other industries of Pune, supports the CII - Symbiosis Finishing School specifically designed for SC/ST candidates. The objective is to help in improving the chances of their employability once they complete their education.
