HEM Agarbatti sets an example of women’s empowerment

Posted on December 1, 2021

Bombay : HEM Agarbatti, a leading manufacturer and exporter of incense and home aromas, set an interesting example of female empowerment by having 77% women in its total workforce. The business, which employs over 500 people, has been a crucial catalyst for women during the Covid period, ensuring strong and stable livelihoods.

Believing that women should be empowered through jobs instead of being limited to household chores, HEM agarbatti provided jobs to women of different age groups to make them independent in all aspects of mind , thought, rights, decisions, and finances.

HEM Agarbatti believes that employees should have the acceptance and recognition they deserve, regardless of their gender. The women of the company have several roles to play and each recruit receives appropriate training. They are given a designation based on their training and caliber. Most of the departments, including human resources, accounting, R&D, etc., are headed by women. The company also provides transportation for its staff as travel and safety are top concerns for many women.

“From the very beginning of our company, we believed in empowering women through employment, and as a result, most of our employees are women. Our first manufacturing unit was in Mulund, Mumbai and now we have moved to Bhiwandi where the main production operations take place. But we have kept our Mulund factory operational just to continue to provide jobs for female staff who have worked with us for a long time and some for over 20 years. In order to help employees continue their work during the pandemic, we made sure to provide materials to their homes and made arrangements to collect the final from them,” says Rahul Shah, Business Development Manager at HEM corporation private limited.

HEM Agarbatti women are treated with the same dignity as their male counterparts and are also encouraged to take on leadership roles. Women benefit from a favorable atmosphere where they can explore their potential and thus contribute to achieving the objectives of the organization. HEM Corporation continues to empower women through its strong positions on breaking stereotypes and nurturing talent in all its forms.
