1. What is your personal approach to making a Great Workplace?
- Great Workplace is where people trust each other, take pride not only in self-work and accomplishments but feel happy when others – seniors, colleagues and juniors – do a great job.
- Great Workplace is where one takes pride and feels happy when his/her successor performs even better than himself/herself.
- Great Workplace is where failure is not condemned but seen as a valuable experience on road to excel.
- Great Workplace is where people come to work not because they have to but because they want to/love to. 

2. What are the top 2 benefits you see of creating a Great Workplace?

1. Performance of organization (including financial perspective) improves continually and people feel validated on their competencies, their worth.
2. In a Great Workplace, leaders are credible, respected (and not feared); leaders are just & fair. The leaders create a strong sense of co-ownership with the organization which leads to a strong passion for the collective success of the organization.

3. What are your top people priorities?

• People must enjoy the work they do, they have to have pride in the organization and their own work, their performance.
• People come to work not because they have to but because they want to, love to.
• Good work life balance
• Positive stress at work that creates an urge to perform increasingly better and  there is no burnout

Our association with Great Place to Work® gave us very valuable insights into our employees’ feelings towards senior management and organization. It gives me confidence that we all together will work to realise our business strategy objectives clearly laid down for the next 3 to 5 years.

Pradyumna Pandey

VP - HR, JK Tyre & Industries Limited

1. What can your present and potential employees be sure of from a work culture perspective in the organization?
• Just & fair treatment to people.
• People friendly policies and practices.
• Empowerment leading to risk-taking; tolerance for occasional failure and encouragement for innovation and creativity.
• Career growth together with organizations growth, good work- life balance

2. What, according to you, is a people challenge your industry is facing?

• Competition not only on business but on talent acquisition front as well.
• Crafting great employee experience through talent attraction, careful onboarding, learning & development and satisfying reward strategies so as to nurture performance-enabling environment.
• AI, ML and increasing automation are disruptive innovations that will create some shakeup across the automotive industry sooner than later. New workforce strategies will have to be continually developed and deployed to minimise the negative consequences of such shakeups on people.

3. How are you ensuring a consistent workplace experience FOR ALL your employees, irrespective of their role, age, gender, tenure etc. in the organization?

• For us, people issues are business issues and business issues are people issues – both getting equally sensitive treatment.
• We consistently create a climate of appreciation – “catch them doing something good, something different yet effective” and give recognition irrespective of age, job role, seniority in organization, gender etc.
• We ensure communication – a constant dialogue. We ensure ‘Informative Communication’ – in that people get to know what they ought to know.  And, we ensure “Accessible Communication” – in that seniors are available for a hearing, an emotive dialogue on some personal concern or any workplace-related issue.
• We care for work-life balance and avoid burnouts. We care for the physical and emotional wellbeing of people by being accessible.
