Emphasizing the significance of Compliance Week, Manish Bhatnagar, Managing Director, SKF India, said, “Creating and maintaining an ethical, high-performing culture requires the dedication of all our employees and partners. By celebrating Compliance Week, we are reminded of ways to embed compliance into everything we do to uphold and maintain the trust of customers, partners, and other stakeholders. As a purpose-led company, it’s important to ensure that the decisions we make today are well informed and balanced – now and in the future.”
