Long before the conception of Careworks Foundation, Quess Corp had started something called the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) in 2011. Through this program the associates of Quess were receiving counselling and help for their workplace issues as well as personal problems. An internal study conducted by the company revealed that out of 85,000 employees, about 80% people were from margins of society who needed assistance for education of kids and personal health and hygiene. The company started out a small team to provide education and health related assistance as well, to the employees under EAP. Seeing the impact of this program, Quess decided to set up a not-for-profit organisation for the benefit of the larger society.
With the belief that “Care” actually “Works”, Careworks Foundation (CWF) was formed in 2014 to act as a catalyst of change and create better lives. Driven by the belief that education and health are the two major pillars to accelerate growth in a society, CWF identified several smaller elements under these to encourage community development.
