TATA’s History of Employee Welfare
In 2016, Ratan Tata saved thousands in the UK from unemployment and was hailed as the savior of the UK steel industry after he announced a decade-long commitment of one billion pounds investment to save thousands of jobs for its embattled steelworks. Recently, the firm rescued the ailing Indian carrier Air India, as thousands were at risk of losing jobs. In 1947, TATA set up a personnel department for an intelligent separation scheme that provided salaries and perks to workers who left until their retirement age.
