Nihar Chheda, VP Strategy, Prince Pipes and Fittings Limited said, “Prince Pipes is in its fourth year of this campaign and every year our engagement has been growing stronger with growing membership on our Udaan loyalty platform. Plumbers have shown excellent participation in 7 cities across India for this event. There are 2 parts to the theme Shram Ka Samman – the first being the event has been full of fun where Prince felicitated plumbers for their tireless work and their long-standing association with us. The campaign’s second key aspect is inspiring them about the dignity of labour. This campaign is also about sensitizing them to keep upgrading themselves in their profession to bring their best to their jobs. Keeping in mind changing times Prince conducts skill enhancement workshops for plumbers to train them about new products, technologies, etc. We work with them so that they are able to make the best recommendations to their customers, which will help them command respect. This is a very important way Prince Pipes creates value along the chain. Prince has also provided for over 5000 loyal plumbers with accidental insurance policies - again an industry first.”
‘Shram Ka Samman’ is an initiative that has the intent to motivate the plumber community, encourage and appreciate their contribution to society and industry, as well as to inspire them to consistently upgrade their technical and soft skills with changing times. The event is being organized across seven cities – Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Patna, Jaipur, Bangalore, and Hyderabad in association with Red FM. Eminent radio jockeys interacted with plumbers, at plumber meets to discuss their professional challenges, explore their lives and their ambitions.
