The Good Glamm Group has also joined the bandwagon of companies who are proudly announcing the introduction of its Gender Reassignment Policy, further solidifying its dedication to cultivating an inclusive workplace


Gender reassignment policies in organisations have become essential to create inclusive and supportive environments for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. These policies aim to ensure that all employees, regardless of their gender identity, are treated with dignity, respect, and fairness throughout their transition process.

The Good Glamm Group has also joined the bandwagon of companies who are proudly announcing the introduction of its Gender Reassignment Policy, further solidifying its dedication to cultivating an inclusive workplace. This pioneering policy has been meticulously crafted to provide unwavering support to employees choosing to undergo gender reassignment or transition, ensuring they can authentically express their true selves. 

About The Policy

This comprehensive policy sets forth clear guidelines and provisions for gender reassignment leave, guaranteeing that employees receive dedicated and paid time off to undergo necessary procedures. As part of this policy, employees will be granted one month (30 calendar days) of paid leave to undergo gender reassignment procedures and will be reintegrated into the workplace with the utmost respect.

As per the policy provisions, any employee undergoing gender reassignment is eligible for this policy and is also entitled to 30 days paid leave and extended leaves on request. 

Not only does this policy acknowledge the unique journey of individuals undergoing gender reassignment, but it also underscores The Good Glamm Group's steadfast dedication to cultivating an inclusive and accepting environment. Moreover, the policy expands its medical insurance coverage and benefits to same-sex couples who have disclosed their partnership status.

Rao’s team has diligently collaborated on this initative, seeking guidance and incorporating insights from their Founder, Co-founders and CEOs. They extensively studied global industry leaders in this domain to craft a policy that aligns with the collective interests of all employees at Good Glamm Group.

Inspiration Behind The Policy Implementation

The implementation of the Gender Reassignment Policy is a significant stride towards fostering a safe and accepting environment where every individual feels valued, respected, and empowered. 

As companies and teams we don’t always get things right. In fact we often get them wrong. But this is a starting step in the absolute right direction

The inspiration behind launching this policy is rooted in the need for creating a workplace where people can be themselves and that’s the biggest gift we can give to our people. A place where they can be their authentic selves and are valued and respected for it. “This is a milestone for us at The Good Glamm Group and the start of many learning moments on what we can all do more of to broaden and make more inclusive the definition of inclusion,” states Kartik Rao, Group Chief People Officer, The Good Glamm Group.

Fellow employees have welcomed the introduction of gender reassignment policy and there is a sense of pride among people to see the company take progressive measures to broaden the concept of inclusivity. They have appreciated the organisation's commitment to diversity at workplace and view this initiative as a positive step towards creating an inclusive work environment.

Also, when asked Rao about the motive behind this implementation, he stated, “Any positive impact is only a bonus. Core idea behind such initiatives is to make people feel comfortable being themselves. Idea is not to be perfect, but be authentic. We do believe this a culture moat that will differentiate good companies from the great ones. The unintended impact for sure will be people wanting to work in such companies for a long time.”

Psychological safety is not just job safety but identity safety. It’s about knowing people would be open, authentic and honest about who they are and what they feel and feel respected, seen and heard engagement is a natural outcome. 

Implementing gender reassignment policy re-empahsises our commitment to inclusivity and diversity. Transitioning can be a challenging process, and having people practices in place that provide necessary healthcare benefits and resources can alleviate stress and contribute to overall job satisfaction and retention.

Further, Rao also stated, "With the introduction of the Gender Reassignment Policy, we aspire to make incremental progress in fostering an inclusive workplace for our employees. Recognising the importance of personal identity and self-expression, we are dedicated to promoting diversity and equality within the workforce. This initiative aligns with the Group’s philosophy of inclusivity and the promotion of a culture free from biases and discrimination."

Going” through a gender transition can be a big and difficult process for individuals. By offering a policy for gender reassignment, we want to help our employees' well-being and create a work environment that is more inclusive and supportive.”

Road Ahead

The Good Glamm Group recognises that a healthy, happy, and encouraged employee ecosystem helps an organisation achieve its goals more effectively and reflects its commitment to championing inclusivity and embracing the unique experiences of its employees. 

The introduction of the Gender Reassignment Policy represents another significant step toward creating a workplace culture that celebrates individuality, enabling everyone to thrive both professionally and personally.

There are many other initiatives that are being discussed internally. Rao claims that as of now the management intends to keep launching such inclusive and empowering initiatives as it also sends a strong message about our values and commitment to diversity and inclusion. “We firmly believe that nurturing a culture of inclusion, acceptance, respect and empowerment is the way forward."
