BetterPlace, a leading full-stack tech platform for frontline workforce management, has partnered with British International Investment (BII), the UK’s development finance institution and impact investor, to upskill and employ 100,000 women workers by 2024. Participation of women has been a concern in the frontline labour force with women constituting a mere 3% of the total workers, according to The Frontline Index Report by BetterPlace.
Betterplace will bring together a network of partners from across the country that are equipping women workers to build a better life for themselves, while also mobilising and sensitising employer organisations who are actively working towards building an equitable frontline workforce.
“The impact as a result of ensuring gender equality in the workforce is massive,” said Pravin Agarwala, Co-founder and Group CEO at BetterPlace, which has more than 30 million frontline workers on the platform. The partnership with BII aims to bridge the gender gap and increase women participation, he said.
