We have led by example, showing that one can be socially responsible yet successful and profitable. Brick by brick, we have built our reputation with fair business practices, statutory compliance and caring for our people and partners alike. Then again, we have been fortunate to have so many well-wishers to partner with. It is an undeniable fact that urban workers have been marginalized, and cannot break free of the cycle of poverty, even when the sector is thriving. Bay crafted the concept of “living wages” over the generally practiced “market wage”; and the visible result is that they are able to live a longer, more productive & meaningful life.
We have always been an agent of change from our inception, committed to creativity, innovation, growth & community. As we look back on our journey, revisit our heritage projects and hear from our partners, we are overwhelmed with joy, satisfaction, and a deep sense of gratitude. Our hope for the future is that we continue to evolve and push the boundaries. Coronavirus may have disrupted everyone’s plans for a while, but Dhaka’s urbanization suggests that the market still has a very long way to go. And so, the journey continues.
