Social responsibility has always been an integral part of Thermax culture and what could be a better way to pass on the baton to the millennials of the company than an exposure to the same during their induction. The new batch of Graduate Engineer Trainees (GETs), Graduate Apprentices (GAs) and Diploma Engineer Trainees (DETs) were given an experiential orientation towards corporate social responsibility during their induction programme in the month of July and September. GAs were assigned a unique activity of preparing handmade study material sheets for slow learners, designed originally by experts based on multiple intelligence theory of Howard Gardner. The group completed as many as 350 sheets which were dispatched to the NGO the same day. DETs visited Shree Shirdi Sai Baba Home for Blind Women. They spent quality time with the ladies, served them food and were inspired to see them making bags with multiple coloured plastic strings, flawlessly and swiftly, displaying their determination despite their limitations. GETs were given the task to make paper bags from newspapers, calendars or used chart papers as an alternative to polythene bags and sell the bags to the employees present at the Thermax Learning Academy (TLA) for promoting both environmental and social cause. The proceeds from this unique sale were given to an NGO.
A group of Thermaxians once again ran wholeheartedly for the ‘Runathon for Hope’ organised on 10th December 2019 by the Rotary Club of Nigdi-Pune. To make the tenth edition of the half marathon even more meaningful, employees formally enrolled themselves in the category of ‘5 km Corporate Run’, supporting the cause of health and empowerment.
