Grihini was established in 1973 by 7 women under the guidance of visionary mentor Mrs Leelatai Moolgaonkar. Grihini employs relatives of Tata motors employees, disadvantaged women from the local communities, imparts training and various skills, and makes them employable for a respectable job. It aims at providing sustainable livelihoods and economic independence to its employees by providing various employee benefits apart from their basic salary. Epitomizing the cooperate welfare society, Grihini follows a profit sharing philosophy. The aid and assistance provided by Tata Motors has transformed Grihini from just manufacturing household consumer products to also deal with intricate wiring and high tech automotive electronic products.
Our work ethics rest on the twin principle of ‘justness’ and ‘ethical’. Justness is ensured through the inbuilt co-operative mode which ensures distribution of dividend in proportion of ones skill set. It is also endured that the Society does not indulge in exploitation of anyone in any manner. Secondly, all labour rights within the ambit of ethical labour practices are secured to the individual members. We believe in ethical outsourcing of labour oriented process.
