India - With Women's Day approaching, ladies at Ford India Purchasing had been thinking of plans to celebrate. All wanted a day where in they can feel special and their colleagues gave them just that.
No one was expecting a grand welcome on Women's Day at the Ford Purchasing office. It took all by surprise to see pink and white balloons all around with pictures of ladies, special messages on walls and flowers on all desks. More so, during one of the scheduled management meetings there was a big cake waiting for all ladies that read "To great women employees at Ford."
What was more touching was that the colleagues backed by Purchasing senior management planned the surprise event at short notice, stayed back late the previous evening after office hours and came in early on the day to execute their plan. They really did go further to appreciate the women employees and make it a special day for them.
