Hinduja Global Solutions to me is a fraud. They are an efficiency only corporation posing as a Socially & globally responsible organization.
3 Proofs this is not a socially responsible organization:
- They fire women disproportionately for obvious responsibilities – Family care, caring for parents & taking care of their needs in regards to a shelter. When analyzed? The dismissals will say absenteeism but it isn’t the truth & the company should be blamed!
- They don’t meet the individual need of the worker – Until HGS takes away automated scheduling and replaces it with a negotiation process. Then HGS can never fully be embraced by the working class! They can’t talk about diversity unless they also are prepared to talk about meeting the diverse needs of the employees. It isn’t sustained diversity!
- The gross ethics of its client – I have said many times what Fido has done in this establishment should be illegal! From the bill tampering to high price-fixing & the ridiculous markup for cellular data. Especially in an age where information should be more freely accessible.
I am still in touch with many of my old colleagues from HGS. I give them the same advice every time. I say companies like HGS represent an attack on the family, leisure culture in Belleville Ontario & Quinte West. If the company won’t change, then I must alienate them from the working class.” It is a responsibility of my moral code to condemn HGS for using what I will call “Typical call center practices.” The fact that they are typical practices does not make it any more ethical. Door to Door salespeople were commonly con-artists, did that justify the practice as a whole? Or did we regulate it tenfold?
The fraud representation of HGS is if this company truly valued diversity, It would not be represented purely by a diverse staff. The representation of diversity would manifest in this company with employees being treated as individuals. Rather than being treated like numbers! (Which by the way is a symptom of fascism) Why not just tattoo a barcode on the employees? Companies that truly value diversity will create schedules on an individual basis, they won’t have centers in locations where workers’ rights are not valued because that can only create exploitation & they wouldn’t take ordinary people in Belleville to turn them in to call center zombie people. Also do we think these call center zombie people are suitable parents to children? Or do they lean on substance abuse for a variety of stress-related issues caused by the dictated employment environment! Which is represented in the pale, bags under the eyes & unhealthy call center employee seemingly walking around with the absence of a soul!
My conclusion is that even if the company marches in Pride parades, goes to college job fairs & hires the disgruntled members of society. It does not make this a socially responsible & sustainable company. Labor has the sole purpose of heightening the quality of life of the people & getting income to families. The fact that children are being brought up better by welfare users opposed to call center labor workers creates a complex issue that has to make us question the call center’s value to our community? If the call center is obliterating the mental health, physical health & overall well-being of the family life in Belleville Ontario. Is it then not serving its purpose?
