The She-Shuttle is an exclusive transport system, introduced by the SCSC, for the women, especially the working professionals. Safety being an intrinsic value at ADP, the company has collaborated with the Cyberabad Police Department to launch the new She Shuttle to facilitate safe travel for the women commuting on the Hi-tech city MMTS Station to ADP Boulevard, Nanakramguda routes. With a capacity of up to 40 passengers, operating 5 days a week to cover 6 – 8 round trips in a day, this shuttle is expected to serve free transport to nearly 12,000 women in a month.
The inaugural event took place at ADP’s office in Hyderabad in the presence of Mr. Dave Kwon, ADP Chief Legal Officer, Executive Committee Leader, and Board Member of ADP Corporate Social Responsibility, Mr. Vijay Vemulapalli, General Manager and Managing Director, ADP India, and other senior leaders were present at the ceremony. From the department, Mrs. K. Shilpavalli, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad, Mr. Rajendra Prasad K, Associate Director, SCSC, and other senior police officials graced the occasion with their presence at ADP office.
Drawing inspiration from the global best practices in employee safety, ADP India has yet again replicated its fierce commitment to employee and community safety. In a grand CSR gesture, ADP India had recently collaborated with the Cyberabad Police Department to install over 80 CCTV cameras at the Nanakaramguda area in Hyderabad.
On the occasion, Mr. Vijay Vemulapalli said, “Every initiative that ADP adopts is a strong reflection of its commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen. We believe that companies must exercise a rigid policy that ensures a commitment to employee safety. Our Social Responsibility program, Tarang, is proud to be collaborating with the authorities to launch the latest She Shuttle to provide a secured ecosystem for the female working pool in the Financial District area of the city. We constantly strive to provide an environment that allows our employees to work with confidence and security.”
Speaking on the launch, Dr. Vipul Singh commented, “Women empowerment is one of the focus pillars of Tarang, and we implemented several initiatives like women helpline number, vocational centers for underprivileged women through Jeevika, hygiene kit distribution drives and sanitary pad dispensers in the downtrodden communities across Hyderabad and Pune, and grocery and daily essential kits distribution for our female support staff. Supporting this She Shuttle initiative by SCSC is an honor for ADP and as a responsible corporate citizen, we will continue to come up with more such programs for the upliftment and safety of women from all walks of life.”
Over the last decade and a half, ADP has served the local communities through its employee-driven and leadership-led community, women empowerment, environment, and education & employability initiatives like the MIDAS model school programs, plantation drives, Youth Development Centers, hiring girl engineering students through one of the NGOs that it supports, donations to multiple shelter homes, academic and skills training workshops volunteered by ADP’s associates, support to specially-abled children and more that positively impact thousands of lives and families in Hyderabad and Pune.
