Ola rides all-woman trend at factory

Women finally seem to be getting a fairer deal when it comes to the shopfloor. As Ola Electric announced an “all-woman” 10,000-strong workforce at its upcoming two-wheeler factory in Chennai, this marks a growing trend where women are getting precedence even in critical and arduous manufacturing processes.

To have women in the factories, companies are making special arrangements and taking care to have a hospitable environment — right from separate toilets to having teams taking care of diversity issues, to ensuring adequate shift hours, and ensuring transport and logistics.

Bhavish Aggarwal, the cofounder of Ola, says that decision for an all-woman workforce will ensure inclusive workforce and provide economic opportunities for ladies.
