Tata Interactive Systems Wins the Golden Peacock Award 2012 for Corporate Social Responsibility
MUMBAI, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Tata Interactive Systems (TIS) won the award for initiatives in the field of
Learning Disability. The Golden Peacock Awards are recognised worldwide as a hallmark of
corporate excellence because of their independence, integrity and transparency.
Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), a pioneer and global leader in learning solutions,
will be honoured with the Golden Peacock Award 2012 for Corporate Social Responsibility
(CSR) initiatives on 25th of April at Hotel InterCon Dubai in a specially organized
‘Awards Gala Nite’. The Award ceremony will be held during the Dubai Global Convention
incorporating the 7th International Conference on Social Responsibility.
His Excellency Humaid Mohammed Obaid Al Qutami and Hon’ble Dr. M. Veerappa Moily,
Union Minister for Corporate Affairs, Govt. of India will jointly present the award in the
presence of distinguished business leaders, jurists, academics, environmentalists,
economists, legislators and policy makers.
TIS has been promoting the cause of Learning Disability (LD) since 2002 in various
roles – including funding and sustaining the existing LD certification clinic, developing
student-management software, and spreading awareness about the cause.
One of the major activities taken up by TIS in this initiative is conducting the
annual Tata Interactive Learning Disability Forum (TLDF) – a platform for national and
international experts on LD to meet and share information about the latest findings in the
field. Over the years, the TLDF has evolved as a forum – from spreading awareness about LD
to urging the community to come together and help students with LD.
In 2008, TIS partnered with the LD Clinic at the LTMG Hospital, Mumbai, India, to
conduct a research on LD certified students in Mumbai. The research indicated that
children were not certified for LD soon enough. This finding became the basis of the 2009
forum – emphasizing the importance of early detection and remediation of LD in children.
Since 2010, the TLDF’s efforts have been directed towards creating LD awareness beyond
TLDF is also associated with the KEM LD clinic in Mumbai, Maharashtra Dyslexic
Association (MDA) and nasen, a UK based LD organization for sharing knowledge on LD. TIS
has designed and developed a book titled Brain Teasers that has puzzles and games to
enable students with LD to grasp various concepts. Apart from TLDF and LD support
activities, TIS has also undertaken programs to train teachers on LD awareness in 2011.
Sanjaya Sharma, Chief Executive Officer, Tata Interactive Systems, said, “We are happy
and proud to receive the prestigious Golden Peacock Award for our CSR initiatives. Being
the world leader in innovative learning solutions, we took up a cause where we could apply
our core skills for the benefit of affected sections of society. Tata Interactive Systems
envisions an inclusive society which is not only aware of LD but one that will also come
together to help children affected with LD achieve their maximum potential. All our
efforts are directed towards this purpose.”
The Golden Peacock Awards have been instituted since 1991 and are recognised worldwide
as a hallmark of corporate excellence because of their independence, integrity and
transparency. These awards provide an opportunity for self-assessment and help companies
accelerate performance and competition. The Golden Peacock Awards lend worldwide
recognition and prestige to the winners.
