Taking several transformative initiatives during the second wave of Covid-19 and its aftermath, our businesses have been edging forward and expanding their footprints of fitness to compete. In this issue of CHANGE, we have many interesting articles that showcase this progression. On the front of digitalization, CRM software is deployed successfully by many of our businesses. Gunjan shares how at Godrej Material Handling he is working on CRM to grow the business of renting forklift trucks. Shyam Motwani describes how digitalization powers GLAFS’s new product introductions and efficiency in sales operations. Automation carried out at a leading tea processing company by Godrej Körber showcases how efficient intra-logistics can lead to business advantage. Nataraj shares with us how PED secured a landmark order for steam generators from NPCIL. This is a strategic win, that paves the way for many such large orders in the future. Besides these, we have many stories about how our businesses are exploring newer vistas for sustaining growth. On the people front, the organization has been continuously working towards bridging the gap between the physical and virtual workplace. From mental wellbeing workshops, a covid support group to fun and interesting workshops that help us engage with our colleagues beyond the 9-5 routine, our corporate functions have been in the forefront of building one Godrej & Boyce, regardless of where our diverse workforce is working from. We have also had some important celebrations like the Energy conservation week and the Cyber security week in the last three months that were organize with the objective of not just building a workforce that will help build an organization for the future but also educating communities that they thrive in, with the hope to create a future that is Good and Green for our next generations. As always, we have some general interest articles. In this issue, you will also read about the Naoroji Godrej Centre for Plant Research and the Vikhroli mangroves- both conserved by Godrej & Boyce with the goal of having a greener planet. CHANGE will now be uploaded on the microsite every quarter, so that we can interact with you often and ensure freshness of content. Enjoy this CHANGE and urge your family and friends to do likewise.
Greetings for the festive season.
