Greetings!

 

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year 2020! Besides kick-starting an exciting new decade, 2020 is a momentous year for all of us.

 

The world around us is rapidly changing and bringing newer opportunities as well as challenges at unprecedented pace. To be successful, it is important we continue capitalizing on the new opportunities and cope with the challenges.

The fact that “Yesterday’s excellence is today’s standard and tomorrow’s mediocrity” is mandating us, more than ever, to learn continuously and acquire new skills quickly for raising the standards in our performance!

I am happy to share with you the updates on some of our key initiatives.

  • L&W cultural alignment through ‘Build-to-Grow’ - for realizing this goal we invested in a modern residential technical & training centre in 2019. Through this centre, we have carried out ~1500 man-days of cultural training in 2019.

  • Leveraging Digitalization – our mission is to accelerate technology adoption and fully leverage relevant technologies in a smarter way.  Our goal is to address the issue holistically from People, Process and Technology perspectives. We have launched L&W specific digital platform named “HYPHEN” integrating several digital applications for seamless collaboration between project sites and support functions. We have also implemented ERP and HRMS for moving towards a paperless agile organization.

  • Sustainable Development - as a responsible contractor, L&W is committed to undertake measures to minimize negative impact on the environment. L&W has launched mobile apps at all project sites for capturing and providing visibility on the daily consumption and conservation of natural resources like Water, Diesel and Electric Power. We are in the process of implementing a holistic sustainability policy to sustain and govern these efforts.

At L&W group level we have fortified our services towards total solutions to customers by further expanding our subsidiaries:

  • Interior, Landscape, Home Building: “L&W Building Solutions”

  • Specialized Solutions: “Invreco” for specialized solutions comprising Precast, Structural Steel Works, M&E, Façade, Plant & Machinery

  • Development: “LW Realty, LWK Development & Alexandrite ITP”

I am fully confident that these initiatives and investments will play a major role in our customer’s success by delivering superior performance in the years to come, enhance overall employee engagement & cultural alignment within L&W and better the overall operational metrics for L&W by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of operations.

 

Warm Regards,
