People have always been at the centre of UPL’s operating ethos. They are one of the important pillars of UPL’s strategic intent.

We’re focused on identifying and creating engaged, enthusiastic employees, and a workplace where people want to stay on and thrive. UPL is committed to paying attention to every facet of work that makes our employees feel inter connected within the social fabric of the organisation.

Employee Engagement

Meaningfully engaging employees is a most critical aspect of our business success and is pivotal to our future successes. As an organization, we believe in comprehensive employee engagement that reflects in a positive work environment, happy working relationships, and year on year productivity milestones.

To develop our teams’ potential, and inspire them to lead with their best efforts, we actively drive employee engagement. From the day we onboard a new candidate, and across their tenure and growth trajectory at UPL. Engagement initiatives help align our employees’ individual activities with UPL’s own growth path. We drive employee engagement through a 3-pronged approach

Reward & Recognition

We believe that Reward and Recognition (R&R) practices must continually evolve to support team efforts and keep up with organisational change. At UPL, our R&R efforts are directed towards incentivizing individual & team performances, and encouraging behaviours that are in alignment with organizational intent. We have instituted 2 tiers of rewards: Global and Manufacturing.

Rewards-1

Global Awards

OpenAg Awards - Our vision is to be an icon for growth, technology, and innovation. The OpenAg Awards are a platform for rewarding excellence in business from all around the world, and for us to share our successes and learn from one another.

Global Sales Excellence Award - these celebrate our top sales and marketing performances. Individuals who directly drive extraordinary business growth

ProNutiva Gold Awards - these celebrate new ideas and innovative, environment-friendly thinking.

Rewards-2

Manufacturing Awards

P.R.A.I.S.E. – Program for Rewards & recognition of All individuals and teams toward Sustainable Engagement. The 5 pillars of PRAISE - Productivity, Quality, Cost, Delivery, S.H.E. and Morale (PQCDSM) - form the base of our awards system. Within it, members of Leadership Team and HODs regularly assess and recognize individuals at department or unit levels, based on their achievements.

Spot Awards – In recognition of employee vigilance & dedication, and in appreciation of teams with ‘One Focus’. These awards excellence in Kaizen / Poke-Yoke / Zero Customer Complaints / Zero Safety Incidents, and Quality Control.

Health-Wellbeing

Employee Health & Wellbeing

The pandemic saw us face situations and experiences that were unprecedented. We came up against scenarios and circumstances for which we did not have Standard Operating Procedures. Social isolation, health concerns, personal and family care and wellbeing, were just some of the pressures that employees, and by extension, our organisation had to adjust for.

  • Childcare facilities are provided by UPL to its employees.

  • UPL provides Mediclaim facilities to all its employees.

  • UPL provides 32 weeks maternity leave, going beyond the Government of India’s mandated 26 weeks.

Employee Assistance Program

Employee Assistance Program

We introduced our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) with support from Workplace Options, the world’s largest independent provider of integrated employee wellbeing solutions. Our EAP services were made available to all white-collar employees of UPL across India, effective 2nd August 2021.

It is a confidential employer-funded support service for our employees and their immediate family members who may be experiencing personal or work-related difficulties. Employee support is provided by external professionals.

We also support employees with a pain management assistance program, where they can avail physiotherapy options at key locations to help them manage acute or chronic pain.

Recrafting ‘Normal’ in the time of Covid

We identified some simple but consistent measures to assist our employees in staying mentally and physically healthy. We introduced a multi-pronged employee wellness program, with something for everyone:

 - yoga

 - Meditation

 - Nutrition Talks

 - Talks on Mental wellness

 - Zumba

 - Pilates

We also encouraged virtual catchups with no work agenda – informal ways of checking in on your teammates and creating online ‘water-cooler’ moments.
