Every day at Thermax provides you an opportunity to explore your potential, enhance your learning and contribute in developing innovative solutions for our stakeholders.
Urja – A Skill Building Initiative for Women
Under the aegis of Urja, Thermax joined hands with Shroff Foundation that helps young people, predominantly tribals, to develop their skills. In the first batch launched in 2017, 13 young, committed women, enrolled for the welders’ programme run by the foundation. They also underwent a soft skills and personality development course to enhance their confidence. The programme was piloted at the Thermax facility in Savli, Gujarat and has later extended to the upcoming facility at Sri City, Andhra Pradesh. This number steadily increased, and in 2018 – 19, 28 women were inducted on the shop floor.
Bhathena Summer Camp
Come summer holidays; Thermax organises the Bhathena Summer Camp every year for employees’ kids in the age group of 7 to 15 years that involves a lot of fun and activity-based learning. This includes nature trails, summer camps, personality development, story-telling and other workshops for children. We also take this opportunity to engage with their parents and sensitise the young minds on topical matters and seek their participation for a more significant cause.
As the name suggests ‘Sakhi’ is an all-women forum to promote an inclusive workplace for women employees that connects their interests, enhances learning and networking opportunities, provides an environment for growth, development and emerge as potential leaders.
Thermax celebrates the National Technology Day on May 11 every year, to recognise various in-house innovations that have contributed to making business more sustainable and contributed to the nation’s technological advancement. As a build-up to the D-day, our Research and Technology (RTIC) division conduct numerous competitions over a week that are aimed to bring out the innovate self in our employees. During the event, the best innovations of the year are awarded the coveted ‘Dr. N.D. Joshi’
award and the ‘Rolling’ trophy.
Life at Thermax is abuzz with celebrations around the year – matching steps to the Dandiya beats during Dassera, an array of rangolis and diyas in Diwali, secret Santas bearing gifts… and so on. Once every year, the divisions break away from work for their team outbounds to spend time at various picturesque locations where they engage in various activities to strengthen camaraderie and at the same time brainstorm on driving their business agenda going forward.
National Safety Day
As a part of our Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) philosophy, we strive to make every location injury and incident-free and to sustain a safe and healthy culture. Apart from imbibing safety as a way of life, we celebrate National Safety Week every year. Employees across offices, sites, and manufacturing locations participate in flag hoisting, safety oath-taking and sharing of best practices. A host of other activities are organised to address every aspect of occupational health and safety such as games to understand risk vs opportunities, safety quizzes, slogan and poster competitions, sessions on lifestyle, stress management and handling medical emergencies.
