Employee Social Options
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Our Employee Social Options Program (Esops) connects Mahindra employees with people who need help. Each year, we organize ongoing initiatives or one-time programs to reach out to groups like the elderly, the disabled, disadvantaged students, or rural population. During the year from 2013-2014, 25,318 Esops volunteers contributed 459,836 man-hours. And each year, more and more volunteers join us in reaching out—we’ve grown more than four times in size since the first Esops in 2006.
From April 1, 2014, in line with the new Companies Act, we pledge to contribute at least 2% of the average net profits that the company made during the three immiedately preceding financial years, but we also believe in the importance of spending our own time and effort. Run by our Corporate Social Responsibility Department, Esops coordinates and focuses employees’ activities in order to create the greatest impact on the problems we tackle. Employees can select from a wide range of activities in the three focused areas of Health, Education, and Environment, or get involved in special local initiatives.
