We have women in our senior ranks throughout our functions, including operational roles that traditionally were male-dominated in the manufacturing industry. And we are able to attract top female recruits from around the world. We have a terrific environment and I am proud to work here.
I have been working at Novelis in Switzerland for the past 5 years, and it is the best opportunity that I have had in my entire career. It's a very interesting and great job. I am involved in laying new processes and hiring new people. Besides, at the Aditya Birla Group we have a lot of opportunities and one of my dreams is to lead a facility not just in Switzerland but another foreign country.
I am the Quality Manager of the Birla Carbon plant in Hanover. The Aditya Birla Group took over the erstwhile Columbian Chemicals, which had changed owners several times. This time, though, it felt safe. We felt we were part of the Group and it felt as a safe workplace. At work we have challenges, responsibilities and a lot of fun things to do.
My association with the Aditya Birla Group goes a long way back. My father has worked for the Aditya Birla Group for nearly 35 years. I was born and raised in the Group, having studied at the Aditya Birla School. Once I completed college, I got the opportunity to work with a unit of the Aditya Birla Group in Dubai and for the past 9 years I've grown in this Group.
If you can dream, the organisation provides the resources to make it a reality.
The Aditya Birla Group has built its foundation on operational excellence placing high value on the skills required for success in manufacturing while recognising that these skills are changing as the world evolves. Both high expectations and significant opportunities will define manufacturing as we leverage this area of strength to reach our growth aspirations.
The Aditya Birla Group is more like an institution than a Group. It is a truly Indian Multi-National Group with diverse businesses across the globe and a strong foundation of corporate governance and value systems which provides challenging work opportunities for aspiring leaders. The exciting philosophy of the Group is one of developing people and enabling them to attain growth as the Group grows.
Manufacturing is the core and a formidable part of the Aditya Birla Group business portfolio. In the last couple of decades, the field of manufacturing has evolved into a fiercely competitive, dynamic and demanding sector, challenging leaders to create unique and innovative solutions. The Aditya Birla Group provides the kind of environment and opportunities that help leaders learn, experiment and implement creative and innovative strategies to deliver superior business performance.
The Aditya Birla Group has moulded me in five years to handle much higher responsibilities than anticipated. The business always motivated me to think bigger and reach higher by working with global experts trained to bring sharp focus on both business and personal behaviours.
My journey in manufacturing in the Aditya Birla Group has itself been a rewarding experience, sometimes at a Brownfield site in the interior of India, or in unlocking value in a complex supply chain in Europe or in exploring potential capacities beyond the known boundaries in the Eastern or Central parts of India. It has been an inquisitorial learning experience, very unique, that brought out the best (against all odds) in the teams with which I worked. Leadership in the Group is about placing success of others above our own and taking pride in them with humility.
When I came to Mumbai, I saw that the Aditya Birla Group is bigger than I had imagined. When you look it up on Google, you don't somehow understand that the company has so many businesses.
I joined the Aditya Birla Group after graduating with a Master's Degree. I'm thankful to the Aditya Birla Group for giving me opportunities to learn, and great projects to work on. I want to recommend the Aditya Birla Group to my friends in Thailand.
