As a concept that goes far beyond mere philanthropy, ‘giving back to the community’ is a significant pillar of Voltas' engagement with Society. Whether as individual volunteers offering their time and efforts, or as an organization generating benefits on many fronts, Voltas through the years has stood for Corporate Sustainability – essentially the creed so dear to the heart of Jamsetji Tata, which set its stamp on the entire Group which he founded.
It is fitting that sustainable value-creation occurs at Voltas in the spheres of both people and technologies. Today’s increasing ‘Green’ concerns find an echo in Voltas culture, and in the hearts of Voltasites. They are the focus of initiatives which are yielding valuable returns, in an increasing quantum. Community service too takes a technological turn, in which our ‘know-how’ is used to build entrepreneurial self-reliance within the community.
The current growth of our economy and the confidence with which we face the world provide a compelling context in which corporates need to engage with the larger social and ecological habitat. In the coming years, it will more and more be necessary for Voltas – as for all corporates – to encourage and generate internal passion for volunteering and community service, as well as to focus the organization's efforts into sustainable community benefit.
Voltasites are blessed with the legacy of the parent Tata Group, of being able to return benefits to society while serving the community and nation. It's an opportunity to spread joy and happiness, while enhancing one's competitive advantage as well as corporate reputation.
