Primary Outcomes (explanation)
- Production Data will be obtained directly from the firm which is recorded daily at the firm. Such data are recorded primarily at the line level and not at the section level. Production data for some sections are available which will be used. In addition, during the course of the intervention, production supervisors will record their own assessment of each section's performance daily.
- Measures of out-group perception and prejudice constructed using survey data in order to analyze whether contact with individuals from other religious groups affect preferences and how these effects vary across sections that require high and low dependency amongst workers
- There will be direct measures of social distance, for example survey questions on cross-religion communication at workplace and preferences towards having non-coreligionist supervisors
- An Implicit Association Test (IAT) where workers associate identifiable Hindu and Muslims names with positions in the hierarchy at the firm to understand whether workers have bias towards their own religious group occupying higher positions.
These outcomes will be compared across treatment arms at baseline and endline.
