Good people, Good for growth

"The welfare of the labouring classes must be one of the first cares of every employer. Any betterment of their conditions must proceed more from the employers downward rather than be forced up by demands from below, since labour, contended, well-housed, well-fed, well-brought up and generally well-looked after is not only an asset and advantage to the employer, but it also serves to raise the standard of industry and labour in the country. In looking after the labour of today, we are also securing a supply of healthy and intelligent labour for the future."

Sir Dorabji J. Tata, 1917
Chairman, Tata Group
