At Bikroy, we strive to create a safe working environment for women. We arrange the time to time training facilities for the female employees to get an opportunity in various leadership positions. We also provide maximum support to our female employees who return to their job after maternity leave, so that they can get back to the previous work environment.”

The good news is, though slowly, this situation has changed a lot. Women have become aware of the problems and progressed towards their rights. We believe that if women become conscious of their rights, that will definitely bring change in society.”
