P&G Health announces caregiving policies for employees who are caregivers to children with special needs

P&G Health India has announced caregiving policies for employees who are caregivers to children with special needs.
 
As part of the company’s equality and inclusion efforts for communities, P&G Health India also champions the cause of maternal and child health in India through community health projects such as Swasthya Sakhis Yes! to Poshan and Maternal and Newborn Health for the Urban Poor. These programmes have been conceptualized under P&G Health’s CSR initiative, SEHAT (meaning health) and are being implemented in partnership with reputed NGO partners.
 
The company aims to provide end-to-end support for all employees who are caregivers to children with special needs (applicable for children upto 18years of age). The holistic support policy for children with special needs entails expanded medical coverage including a hospitalization program and specific treatment for neurodevelopmental and physical disabilities.
 
Diagnosis, treatment, consultations, devices and medicines are also included in day-care support in association with Kare Home and continued EAP in partnership with Optum.
 
Through a co-pay India Day Care Policy, employees with children who are in the age group of 6 months to 6 years can enrol their children in a recognized and registered daycare service centre of their choice. Both these policies, which are available to all employees across the country, including the field sales employees, will help empower mothers, as well as set them up for success and enable a healthy work-life balance.
 
Milind Thatte, managing director, of P&G Health India said, “At P&G Health, we believe in fostering an environment of equal opportunities at the workplace. I am delighted to announce that these daycare policies will also cover our field sales employees, which should encourage more mothers to get back to work after their Maternity leaves. We know and understand the importance of diversity at work and are continuously employing interventions to encourage more women across roles and hierarchies. We sincerely hope the introduction of such policies will help us in our efforts, where we want our employees to bring their best selves to work every day.”
 
Anit Singh, human resources director, of P&G Health, commenting on the policy said, “P&G Health believes in continuously investing in the wellbeing of its employees and supporting them during their important life stages. We have been the pioneers in many employee-friendly policies, thereby making the lives of our employees healthier and happier. Our strong focus on inclusivity and equality inspired us to initiate these unique daycare policies that bring joy to parents who would require this support. We have partnered with the best-in-class service providers to help us implement this policy for all our employees, across the country.”
 
“While the Swasthya Sakhi Programme provides women with increased access to affordable screening and diagnostics while contributing to women’s employment and entrepreneurship, our Maternal and Newborn Health for the Urban Poor program is helping improve access to healthcare services for pregnant and lactating mothers and newborns. We are also focusing on nutrition which is an important aspect of Maternal and Child Health through our Yes! To Poshan Programme which educates pregnant women and lactating mothers at the grass root level about diet diversity and proper nutrition,” added Thatte.
