State-run power company NTPC on Thursday said it has featured on the top on the list of Indian PSUs under the ‘World’s Best Employer 2020’, published by Forbes.

The recognition is testimony to NTPC’s commitment towards inculcating best in class practices that are thoughtfully designed and robustly executed, the company said in a statement.

During the lockdown phase and the subsequent unlock period, NTPC’s learning and development strategy moulded itself significantly to further evolve in keeping with the requirement of the current scenario, the power producer said.

Its training methodology enriched the lives of thousands of its employees through intensive digitisation and online training, enabling them to avail of services even from remote locations, it added.

The modules have helped thousands of workers from NTPC to grow and think beyond the professional sphere.

NTPC has successfully innovated and introduced people practices in the domain of hiring; engagement; diversity and inclusion; rewards and recognition; and performance management.

In the recent past, the company has initiated an ‘NTPC Series’ on success stories beyond official work, ‘Ambition, Growth, Success Beyond Work’, a series on the achievements of employees beyond their official assignments.

Around 160,000 full-time and part-time workers from 58 countries working for businesses with operations in multiple nations or regions took the survey and these participants rated their eagerness to endorse their employers to others.

The employers were also judged based on their Covid-19 responses, image, economic footprint, talent development, gender equality and social responsibility. The final list comprised 750 multinational and large corporations headquartered in 45 countries.
