Ola Futurefactory to be run entirely by women.
Ola Electric will employ more than 10,000 women. The Ola Futurefactory will be the largest all-women factory in the world.
The Ola Futurefactory will be run entirely by women. Ola Electric will employ 10,000+ women and make the Ola Futurefactory the world’s largest women-only factory and the only all-women automotive manufacturing facility globally.
The first batch of all women employees has started their work at the factory.
Bhavish Aggarwal, CEO of Ola, said, ” This is the first in a series of initiatives we are undertaking at Ola to create a more inclusive workforce and provide economic opportunities for women across the board.
We have invested significantly to train and upskill them in core manufacturing skills, and they will be responsible for the entire production of every vehicle manufactured at Ola Futurefactory.
Enabling women with economic opportunities improves not just their lives but that of their families, and indeed the whole community. Studies show that just providing women parity in the labor workforce can grow India’s GDP by 27%.
But this requires active and conscious efforts from all of us, especially in manufacturing, where participation remains the lowest at just 12%. For India to be the world’s manufacturing hub, we must prioritize upskilling and generating employment for our women workforce.
Ola Futurefactory is one step towards our vision of the world’s future – a world with clean mobility, a carbon-negative footprint, and an inclusive workforce. We will continue to take steps that get us closer to achieving each of these across Ola and encourage others to join us so we can accelerate India’s progress.
The Ola Futurefactory is the world’s largest two-wheeler factory. It is spread across a total area of 500 acres. Running at its full capacity, it will produce 1 crore two-wheelers annually.
The company claims that it is also the most sustainable and most advanced two-wheeler factory in the world.
The factory will have 3000+ AI-driven robots to carry out the operations. With the 10 production lines, on average it will take only 2 seconds to make one scooter.
