To support women to resume back to work after a career break, udChalo, a top Online Travel portal for Indian Defence Personnel has announced ‘Utkarsh’, a unique program that enables and empowers women to start or restart work with dignity and pride. The word ‘Utkarsh’ in its literal sense stands for awakening, advancement and heading in the direction of prosperity.


This program aims to create a diverse pool of talented women whose skills can cater to the needs of udChalo. Under this program, there will be several batches of selected women who will gain access to online training and professional development by experienced udChalo employees, to enable them to regain their self-confidence and strike work-life balance.


Commenting on this program, Varun Jain, CEO udChalo said, “Our Program, ‘Utkarsh’ aims to create an equal opportunity stance and build a model of engagement around the concept of work from home, thereby guiding, encouraging, and empowering women to start or restart their careers. Diversity and inclusion are the fundamentals of a successful business and as an organization, udChalo endeavours to build a culture that supports these two important aspects.


According to industry estimates, it is observed that while 50 per cent of the women resign before the age of 30 to take care of their children, nearly 48 per cent drop out within four months of returning from maternity leave.


Speaking on the initiative, Vishnu Bhagwan, COO, udChalo, said, “Women are an integral part of the workforce at udChalo and hold key positions across various critical business functions. We intend to provide women with a chance to learn and apply new skills from the comfort of their homes, re-rebuild their confidence and interact with the outside world. udChalo believes that women resuming work after a career break must be given adequate support to successfully streamline their transition.


udChalo is a completely homegrown organization, owing its roots to the Defence fraternity. As an Organization philosophy, we are nested in providing ‘Service for Services’. Our work is based on a simple but powerful goal of "Making Life Simpler for Our Soldiers".


Through this one-year program, the Utkarsh Women Force will join the udChalo team as Executive Trainees in Serving the Armed Forces Personnel Community and in the process, gain knowledge, get trained by Industry Experts, and get compensated well for their efforts, thereby making them financially independent.
