Pragati, the Social Sensitivity Cell of IIM Indore conducted a special event for the care-takers of the Institute—‘We Care’ on November 20, 2017. Launched in 2016, the initiative aims at recognizing and showing gratitude towards the Institute’s housekeeping staff and gardeners.
As part of the initiative, Pragati organized a small gathering where students, professors, and stakeholders came together to interact with the staff and expressed gratefulness for the services they provide. After last year’s successful event where Pragati distributed umbrellas and food packets to the staff as a token of thanks; this time the team decided to hand out blankets to ensure the staff has a comfortable winter. Sweets were also distributed to everyone.
The housekeeping staff and gardeners were visibly delighted in response to the thoughtful act. Professors, too, conveyed appreciation for the initiative. The Social Sensitivity Team hopes to carry forward the tradition for all years to come.
