Transcript of Rishi laser ltd newsletter v

  1. 1. Our economy is passing through one of the most critical times in recent history. Within the economy manufacturing has been hit the hard- est. During this difficult time it is necessary to strengthen our resolve and make changes in our work ethic. It would be a good idea to try and learn from our scriptures about work and duty. Our Lord explained in the Geeta The world is bound by actions other than those performed for the sake of Yagna. Therefore, perform actions for Yagna alone, without any attachment (Ch. 3- 9). We must therefore perform our work in the spirit of Yagna. All work can become a sacred Yagna if we undertake it without ego. The work that we do can be divinised into a sacred Pooja if only we change our mental attitude to work. Let us try to work in the spirit advised by the Lord so that we find fulfillment in the work. We had two major tragedies in our country re- cently. First was the natural disaster in Uttark- hand which has left a large part of the commu- nity, in the affected areas, homeless. The sec- ond tragedy was the death of school children who consumed poisonous food offered in the mid-day meal scheme. Let us pray that the affected have strength to overcome. Our Company will be taking up the work of rehabilitation of the affected in Uttarkhand. I urge youll to support the Company in this activity. Four steps to achievement: 1. Plan Purposefully. 2. Prepare Prayerfully. 3. Proceed Positively. 4. Pursue Persistently. Creating a strong business & building a better world are not conflicting goals, they are both essential ingredients for long-term success. There are no Secrets to Success. Its the Result of Preparation, Hard Work & Learning from Failure. Shri.Harshad Patel
  2. 2. Page 2 CSR IS A HARD-EDGED BUSINESS DECISION, NOT BECAUSE ITS A NICE THING TO DO OR WHEN PEOPLE ARE FORCING US TO DO IT BECAUSE IT IS GOOD FOR OUR BUSINESS As we expand our foot print into new ven- tures, we also take on the responsibility to care for the communities. Today Corpo- rate Social Responsibility has become an integral part of companies. For CSR ac- tivities various initiatives are taken up by the companies to give back to the society that helped them reach the stage. Gujarat region has initiated CSR Activities since last two year which is embedded in Rishi Corporate culture and integrated with core-business objectives to deliver social & environmental returns. It involves all employees & workers with wide efforts from cross functional team member in- volvement to institutionalize CSR. Rishi Gujarat is working to promote CSR throughout the entire structure by offering opportunities for employees to participate in a wide array of CSR Programme for example Blood Donation camp, Education kit distribution to our workers & labours, water harvesting etc. Rainwater harvesting is a technique used for collecting, storing, and using rain- water for landscape irrigation and other uses. The rainwater is collected from vari- ous hard surfaces such as roof tops and/or other types of manmade above ground hard surfaces. Rain water harvesting is essential because, surface water is inade- quate to meet our demand and we have to depend on ground water. Due to rapid urbanization, infiltration of rain water into the sub-soil has decreased drastically and recharging of ground water has diminished. In the given picture is the drawing of water harvesting plan for RLL Gujarat. Basic Principle: Collection of rain water through roof and channelizing it to filtra- tion module which is than supplied for recharging bore well. Above system oper- ates on gravity and does not require electricity. Module: SFM Module -2350(sand filtration module) Function of module: Maximum rain water is collected from roof to sand filtration module-2350 where filtration takes place. Many companies feel compelled to give back to the community. Few have figured out how to do it well. Rishi Gujarat has identifying the right focus areas in key to the success of CSR Programme.

  3. 3. Page 3 On 25th May 2013 Saturday Blood Do- nation Camp was organized @Rishi Laser Ltd, Vadodara Unit. This camp was organized with the help of Friends Society NGO & S.S.G. Hospital, Vado- dara. The camp commenced with a counseling session by a team of spe- cialists wherein donors were made aware of the need for worldwide blood donation initiatives, safety measures followed for both donors and recipients, and acknowledgment provided to the donors. In return, the camp got an over- whelming response. One will be pleased to know that 65 dedicated & loyal employees-workers from Vadodara and Savli took part in BLOOD DONATION CAMP, of them 40 employees and work- ers successfully donated 40 units of blood. Later on the foundation issued donor cards, which will be important to the donor & family in getting immediate blood relief in-case of any unforeseen situation for future. This article is to cele- brate and thanks those individuals who voluntarily gave their time & blood without any reward. They accepted the fact that by donating they have helped to save lives. Also would like to thanks all those individuals who made effort to donate blood but due to certain criterias where tardy. Its our sincere thanks for such an impressive job. We are grateful to the Committee Members namely - Surendra ChauhanPaint Shop, Chirag Rana- Bending, Dhaval Tank-TPP, Prasant Tank-Fabrication for their ideas, efforts and enthusiasm to make this event a success.

On 16th June 2013 @ RLL Rajkot under the leadership & guidance of Mr.Piyush Bhagdev Tree Plantation activity was carried out @ Rajkot Unit. It wont have been possible to carry out this activity without active participation of Rishi employees. We are glad that Rishi Laser employees, are so enthusiastic towards contributing for society & na- ture. For the sustainable environment development in our local, its surrounding communities in industries, the Tree Plantation is an answer. (CO2 kick the habit towards the low carbon economy). Trees should be regularly planted to save the mankind & animal world. Tree plantation and its after-care is a pleasing work too. Industries should plant trees in their compounds, in the front-yards, backyards and side-yards of their company, near their own houses and in other places wherever possible. In the end would like to thank Page 4 T H E B E S T T I M E T O P L A N T A T R E E I S T W E N T Y Y E A R S A G O . T H E S E C O N D B E S T T I M E I S N O W .

  5. 5. Page 5 The year began on a positive note with our Bommasandra unit being certified with the much coveted ISO 14001 EMS certification. It is every ones duty to protect the environment so that it can sustain our future generations. Our dependence on the precious ground water re- duced to 30 % after installation of rain water har- vesting, various environmental programs are being executed thru Continual Improvement process in line with our Environmental Policy. These programs would reduce the impacts of our activities on the environment. Safety of our people and the factory has always been a prior- ity and to reinforce our resolve towards safety at work we have conducted several audits, train- ings and emergency mock drills. These activities have inculcated a culture of safety at work among the employees and have prepared them in emergency response techniques. You dont have to be a doctor to save lives, just donate blood with this theme in mind It is heartening to note that several of our employees have been donating their blood to the needy patients of the nearby Cardiac hospital. This noble gesture of theirs have saved many precious lives. As part of our drive towards operational excellence we have kick started Lean activi- ties with equal participation from the leadership and the employees. These activities have resulted in better productivity a
