The employees associated with Mahindra Finance presently and potentially will be assured of a rich Employment Value Proposition which offers:

They will be exposed to an environment where “Passion meets Growth”.

2. What, according to you, is a people challenge your industry is facing?
Firstly, we serve a diverse demographics of customers with unfavourable business contingencies which requires a high level of commitment and persuasion in bringing a closure.

Secondly, Talent today has a lot of opportunities in the BFSI sector and they are very prone to instability, this poses a challenge in retaining the best in class talent. We have to keep on reinventing the wheel to ensure the talent is engaged.
Thirdly, Millennials today have a lot of different expectation from the workplace than what the conventional organisations can provide. We have to be adaptable and innovate with the latest trends to attract this pool of talent and unleash their potential.

3. How are you ensuring a consistent workplace experience FOR ALL your employees, irrespective of their role, age, gender, tenure etc. in the organization?
Mahindra Finance is certified as a PCMM level 5 organisation, which assures a high degree of predictability in HR service delivery to our stakeholders.

This has brought in a lot of consistency in our approach coupled with strategic partnering.
