At Ashwin Sheth Group, the company is initiating various initiatives to empower the importance of work-life balance such as initiating policies like reimbursing 50% of the gym membership fees to have a healthy and active lifestyle of the employees.
The Nurturing Mental Well-being workshop offers an immersive journey to overcoming negativity and managing stress in a busy professional life. The workshop aims to raise awareness about mental health, provide practical tools for managing stress, and empower participants to take proactive steps towards enhancing their mental well-being. Collaborating with the Bombay Painting Club was a creativity to express emotions via art therapy.
