Under the new benefit, employees at Intuit India will now be able to enrol their same-sex partners as dependents under group medical insurance. In addition, this inclusion will also be applicable to other health related benefits like OPD, dental and vision reimbursement.

“At Intuit our mission to power prosperity around the world is fueled by our values and supports our belief that every employee should be able to bring their whole self to work. Diversity isn’t something we do — it’s who we are, and we are continuously striving to create a workforce that reflects the demographics of those we serve,” Sanket Atal, managing director, Intuit India Development Centre, told ET.

The focus for the company continues to be on achieving equality at the workplace and increasing underrepresented minorities to reflect the customers they serve.

The company also reimburses up to Rs. 75,000 under sex realignment surgery as a part of the group medical insurance. It is also among few companies in the country to provide gender neutral washrooms at its offices.

The firm has also partnered with InnerSight, a leading counselling and wellness practice training centre to provide counselling services to its employees in India, who either identify themselves with the LGBT community or who need some counselling help because their loved ones are from the LGBT community.

Intuit India is a subsidiary of Intuit, and is the company’s first venture in Asia Pacific; it commenced operations in 2005 and currently has more than 1,000 employees.
