An American multinational company, which have started its roots in 1976, as Apple computer company, which is famous for its electronic products and software have recently launched an awareness programme in India and China.
This program aims to encourage women workers to look after their personal health. We know how important personal health is for a person. And especially when it comes to the women. Apple acknowledges the fact that women are the most important part of our societies and hence their health is as important for them as it is for society. Despite being a company holding value in selling their electronic products, this is another great initiative by them which not only values their woman workers just by the word of mouth but also by their actions.
Apple launched this health programme in 2017 for women in India and China.
“Beyond ensuring a safe and healthy workplace, we believe that all employees in our supply chain should have the opportunity to learn more about personal wellness and preventive healthcare.” Said Apple in its 12th Annual supplier responsibility progress report.
In addition to this, Mr. Jeff Williams, Apple’s COO said in a blog post that
“We believe that everyone making Apple products deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and we’re proud that almost 15 million people understand their workplace rights as a result of the work we’ve done over the years. We’re going further with health education programmes and new opportunities for advancement at our suppliers.”
“Our goal is to reach one million women by 2020. We know our work is never done and we’re committed to raising the bar every year across our supply chain.”, He added.
In this programme, the participants are introduced to nutritional healthcare, maternal healthcare as well as preventive healthcare. They are also encouraged to share what they have learnt from their coworkers, their family and friends.
This entire programme is made to ensure that the women associated with Apple as their employees should be able to understand and spread healthcare measures among the people around them.
The programme, as we know have started in 2017 but by the year 2020, this programme aims to target 1 million women in our country. Apple, being such a renowned company have put forth a great start in front of all the leading and developing companies.
This programme is something which we can all learn from. Other companies should also start with such initiatives. This shows how concerned a company is for its employees and how much the company values them. Your organisation can only flourish if you provide an amicable working environment and value your staff.
No doubt, Apple is a part of the Big Four of the technology which Includes, Google, Facebook and Amazon.
“Our goal is to enable women in factories to take charge of their personal health and well-being by becoming well-informed of risks specific to women. The programme also encourages them to take a leadership role by sharing their new health awareness with their colleagues, friends, and community.” Says a report on the programme launched by Apple.
Sometimes it’s not in the name, but in the values, you take ahead along with your company which makes it the best!
