Avery Dennison India has been certified by Great Place to Work India as a workplace with inclusive practices. Avery Dennison has also been recognized as one among the Top 10 India’s best workplaces in diversity, equity, and inclusion 2021. This recognition is a testimony to the commitment of the leaders and employees of the organization to progress on this journey of equity, inclusion, and diversity, which is deeply acknowledged as the true bedrock of innovation and sustainable business performance. 

As a global authority on workplace culture, Great Place to Work has been studying employee experience and people practices across organizations for over three decades. Every year, more than 10,000 organizations from over 60 countries partner with the Great Place to Work Institute for assessment, benchmarking, and planning of actions to strengthen their workplace culture. 

First-of-its-kind in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion space, the Workplace Inclusion Index was launched by Great Place to Work Institute India in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in 2021. This study captures the experience of over 1,00,000 employees, of which 34% belong to historically excluded communities (including individuals who identify as women, other gender identities, LGBTIQA+, persons with disabilities, veterans, individuals returning from a career break, and other under-represented minorities in the country). 

Certified workplaces were further evaluated to arrive at India’s Best Workplaces in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 2021. Certified workplaces were further evaluated to arrive at India’s best workplaces in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 2021 based on inclusive practices that cut across diverse demographic groups, adequate representation from diverse groups, and also their employees’ experience of inclusion and sense of belonging in the workplace.

This recognition strengthens the commitment of Avery Dennison LGM further to advance on this journey of DEI by rallying the strong passion of the organization in this area”. 

In India, the Institute partners with more than 1100 organizations annually, across over 22 industries, to help them build High-Trust, High-Performance Cultures designed to deliver sustained business results. Hundreds of CEOs and CXOs from India are part of the great place community committed to making India a great place to work for all.


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
