To strengthen the movement, the company has also conducted counseling sessions under their Nasha Mukti Shivir – in partnership with The Art of Living.
Praising the efforts by the employees, Pawan Jain, President, Corporate Affairs, Trident Group said “Last year, we had taken a pledge to focus on voluntary de-addiction as an organization-wide effort, and I am proud of our first volunteers who have come forward for rehabilitation, to live by Trident values. De-addiction has a direct impact on an employee’s health and family environment, and we are keen to support our employees in addressing the issue. At Trident, we are aiming to build a sustainable organization and being an inclusive, employee-focused company forms the foundation of all our efforts.”
