To be at the core of an effective learning network, that as a strategic business partner, harnesses knowledge and intellectual capital, to 'contribute' to the goals and objectives of the Business
The Birla Carbon organization is definitely more focused on people development and training.
The company sent me outside for training and also to other plants to learn from their experience.
I was nominated to attend two courses at IIM Bangalore one on Strategy and the other on Negotiation and also sent to Singapore for a course on Trading apart from several other courses I attended at Gyanodaya. This has really helped me to develop professionally.
The organization has supported me both professionally and personally. Personally I’ve been mentored by my seniors and that has helped me a lot.
We have elearning courses and the MBA for higher studies which is very beneficial.
I got a lot of learning opportunities, technical training from abroad and I also completed my MBA from Universitas 21 sponsored by the Group as well as completed my executive course on leadership from the Indian School of Business and Harvard Business School.
Aditya Birla Group has a lot of initiatives towards learning and development, like Gyanodaya which is an internal training institute and the development assessment centre.
Under the world of opportunity I have been given the opportunity to complete my e-MBA through U21 Global.
We believe that if you’re going to be a global leader then you should’ve lived in atleast 2 continents and driven an agenda in two different continents to appreciate the different cultures, the different geo political dynamics, the different legal environments and so we put people on 2-3 year assignments in different parts of the Novelis footprint and get them prepared to be one of our key executives in the long run.
If I recall I would have attended atleast 12 programs where they called eminent personalities from different organizations or eminent professors who gave you different kind of learnings.
There’s every opportunity to learn and develop that Novelis offers whether it is something that you seek out to learn on your own. Novelis is 100% supportive of you tackling on projects independently or they offer organized development and learning sessions such as leadership classes or at the facilities we have rapid improvement events where we focus on one particular problem at a time.
The company offers a lot of training to us for eg leadership training and other trainings like interviewing skills and this is not quite common for an employer at this moment given the market situation being a little tight, the first thing which is cut are the training budgets and our employer is not cutting it down so we have a lot of opportunities to develop ourselves to be promoted for other positions.
One privilege that I’ve had being in this group, is to work with different kind of leaders. I’ve had leaders of completely different styles from very father figure kind of leaders to leaders who were extremely analytical, visionaries in terms of their thinking, to leaders who created absolute innovations in the businesses. So it’s been a great opportunity to learn from various kinds of bosses and leaders.
With the world of opportunities with the learning and development inititative at AV Nackawic continued education is something that we focus on heavily. For me personally I started my career in the chemical division and when I took on the fibre line manager position three years ago it was a real challenge for me technically to learn the pulp mill process. I’ve been very fortunate to be able to take technical courses for pulp and paper to help me grow my individual skills and improve my competency.
Aditya Birla Group has given me opportunities to travel all over India and outside India. I’ve just returned from Paris and Italy where I’ve learnt lots on design and the trends of what is going on outside India.
Aditya Birla Group provides us the culture of performance management – clear objectives, clear expectations and a common goal is set for all employees. Recently ABG has selected me for the Focus 50 program that is for the future leadership program in next 1.5 years. Time to time training at Gyanodaya has helped me in enhancing my skills.
We get job rotation in our company which is a very good learning and development initiative.
A World Of Opportunities awaits you.
