Manufacturing & Production
Mahindra Intertrade Ltd. has successfully created a Great Place to Work FOR ALL their employees as they have excelled on the 5 dimensions that are a hallmark of a High-Trust, High-Performance Culture™ – Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride and Camaraderie. In a rigorous assessment process conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute, Mahindra Intertrade Ltd. met the minimum criteria on the Trust Index© Employee Survey, on the consistency of experience across all demographics and on the Culture Audit© People Practices Framework, to clear the first level i.e. getting Great Place to Work-Certified™.
Mahindra Intertrade focuses on the 3E approach to learning (education, experience, and exposure), as part of this philosophy, they want their junior management employees to learn directly from the CEO. What is it like to spend one day complete with the CEO and learn from him? How does he manage his time? How does he make decisions in real-time? What are the challenges he faces? How does he manage stress? They invite their junior management employees to directly self-nominate to spend 1 day with the CEO. since they have several employees across locations who apply, they have a public draw of lots and thus, select 3 junior management employees to spend the day with the CEO. The day begins with the CEO welcoming the 3 employees and sharing with them his challenges for the day. CEO then goes about his usual schedule. The 3 employees are part of all meetings, discussions and at the end of each schedule of approximately 1 hour / 1.5 hours, the CEO has a quick recap and a learning summary/conversation with the employees.
At Mahindra Intertrade, each plant has a mini culture of its own, with its own set of challenges and concerns. In an attempt to manage this experience effectively, ‘HR Hain Na’ was conceptualized with the objective of having an individual connect with employees, specifically their shop floor employees. Once every quarter employees across levels from the HR team have a personal chat or a virtual interaction with employees across locations. The idea is to understand their pain points and address the same.
The following things make me believe that it is a Great Place To Work® - 1. Constant support and directions by management, 2. The number of growth opportunities provided by management, 3. Working culture of innovation and excellence
Flexibility in timings is a unique feature which helps to balance work and personal life both. There are very different ways to appreciate even small and rarest innovative ideas, project, etc. at every level.
