Future Generali India Life Insurance Embraces Diversity with their DiverseAbility Internship Program

Mumbai, December 02, 2022: On the occasion of DiverseAbility Day, Future Generali India Life Insurance Company Ltd (FGILI) launched the FG DiverseAbility Internship Program in 2021. It was established as an affirmative undertaking; it is now being instituted annually. The goal is to on-board diverseable interns in the same manner as one would hire any other intern, even without an umbrella program necessarily. Under this unique program, specially-abled candidates are hired for internship positions for a period of two months. On successful completion of the program, interns stand a chance to secure long-term roles with Future Generali India Life Insurance.

The Diversity Internship was launched with the intent to enhance and provide employability to people with diverse needs and skills. The biggest nemesis for such undertakings is tokenism and a conscious effort was made to circumvent that by involving multiple departments and functions in this initiative. This was to engender a genuinely long-term and sustainable culture of looking beyond the disability and focusing on the capability of a person to perform the role.

The first leg of this program kicked off in December 2021 where a total of 03 interns with disabilities were hired under the following categories – Partial Physical Disability and Partial Auditory Disability. In the first round of implementing the program, a (mailer) invite was sent to eligible candidates. The second round involved quizzes on three sections – logical reasoning, situational judgment on the organization’s strategy plan, and questions specific to the company. Round three constituted a final interview conducted by the functional head.

Shwetha Ram, Head – Human Resources said, “Diversity at Future Generali India Life Insurance Company Ltd. encompasses a multidimensional spectrum and is considered holistically across the 4 pillars of Gender, Age, Culture, and Inclusion. Disability, or Diverseability as we prefer to call it, is one facet of diversity and our goal, by virtue of initiatives like the DiverseAbility Internship Program, is to engender a culture that is evolved to look beyond impairments and empower true talents, who have the will and the passion to bring their unique abilities to the table. It is also an opportunity for everyone to demystify and course-correct their myths/beliefs on diversability. We believe they are not disabled but ‘differently abled’. Such undertakings essentially arise from the hope of building a community at Future Generali India Life Insurance Company Ltd. where we can be more reflective, considerate, and empathetic as we forge ahead to become a truly progressive organization.”

Future Generali India Life Insurance Company Ltd. is also set for the second leg of the FG DiverseAbility Internship Program starting December 2022 and aims to provide internship opportunities. The company will also reduce employment barriers and ensure comfortability, pre-work, and workplace sensitization before boarding. FGILI will provision hearing aids, and voice recognition speech-to-text applications and cater to employees' preferred mode of communication as is. Measures will be taken during day-to-day functioning and an HR spokesperson will be allocated for induction and grievance at all times.

Employees with disabilities bring a unique set of skills, perspectives, and experiences which contribute to the success, motivation, and morale of the workplace. With the increase in awareness and activities around fair representation in the workforce, initiatives like DiverseAbility Internship Program contribute to making the future of diverse hiring a current reality.

We expect our diverseable interns to embody the tenets of our employee EVP ACE (Agility as a way of Life, chart your own Growth, and providing an Enabling Work Culture) as we look at them and their talent no differently than any of our employees. ACE is truly reciprocal, and we believe that imbibing these principles will both help them contribute in a meaningful manner with us, as well as give wings to their professional ambitions.
