We the industrialist of India is also living in the same world of dynamic business environment. That consists of economic, political, social, cultural and demographic environment etc. but here with this paper I want to throw some light on the very special segment in socio-cultural environment that too is not away from the latest trends and changes in the global business environment. Today we talk about empowerment especially for the women of India. This paper basically deals with the existing nature and content of this issue within Indian organizations.

The initial reluctance of employers to give jobs to women seems to be a thing of the past.  Today they handle both "hard" and "soft" jobs now in areas such as accounting, hospitality, banking, insurance, airways etc at the same time they are also being preferred for these jobs.

As far as the culture of any business organization is concerned it plays a very pivot role in the development of the overall organization in itself and in the eyes of customers and different stakeholders. Culture could be defined as a way of living that consists of set of values, beliefs and attitude. To govern these things accordingly in the organization they have different set of rules to be followed. This could be possible with help of developing different policies, say discipline, recruitment, or other. Here it is necessary to highlight that most important is to respect the constitution of our country.  So moving forward to this every organization is continuously collecting the idea and the success of different tools for the same. The latest or more important one here is to highlight the recruitment of female employees in the organization. This mantra was not so supported in the earlier time but as the research conveys it is now adopted by most of the organization in India itself. Female employees today constitute a major share of the workforce. In India alone, over 400 million are employed in various streams due to combination of factors like:

Women emancipation, growing economic needs greater equality of sexes, increased literacy rate etc.  But still there are still some conservative problems in rural areas for not supporting the education to women in India. Here we are confident enough that we can very well overcome by this problem in the nearby years. In some organization the ratio of male and female employees is around 60:40. They are now that much not interested to keep the old male employees rather moving for the selection of female candidates. And here our country's system of empowering women is becoming very helpful.

Major effect of this issue is in the area of discipline among the employees within the office premises. We can very well understand that having only male employees in the organization lead to unsocial discussion and abusive language. But with the recruitment of female employees may help in this area and the people keep themselves in more mannered and polished behavior.
