Coupled with my professional as well as PoSH experience I am able to balance business needs and gender issues while complying with the law.

Inquiry Service details or comments :

When a case of SH is reported to your organizations IC and needs to be taken up for investigation, I charge a flat fee of Rs. 5000 per meeting (this can be conducted online since employees are WFH). However, this is capped at Rs.50,000 maximum Fees mentioned are only indicative. After a conversation with the organisation I am better positioned to offer a proposal that has more value as it depends on number of employees, number of locations, how many cases reported annually etc. Having worked with start ups I understand the need for a more flexible service offering. I offer the entire suite of services in PoSH. In addition I offer similar services to my clients that have offices in Manilla and Costa Rica.

We recommend organizations to shortlist the candidate and take the interactions forwards directly with the shortlisted External Members.
