A significant focus area has been to move beyond classroom "training" and instead deliver integrated learning solutions focusing on long term embedding of learning. The robust platform is drawn through:

  • Business Specific Learning Calendars
  • Learning Councils which co-evolve learning needs aligned to business plans
  • Business Sponsors for each learning need
  • Greater focus on long term embedding of learning – pre-work and post-work, action learning projects and certification
  • Learning metrics mapped to business metrics
  • Greater focus on using “Leaders as Teachers” to build a learning culture

2. Accelerated development programs for the Mid and Senior level employees

SUMMIT - A Group-wide senior leadership development program that focuses on building leaders who are role models in the "Piramal Way" having gone through a one year intensive journey of personal and professional transformation. The leaders have access to senior McKinsey coaches along with structured learning input, in a learning journey that seamlessly brings together their "business mandate" and their "development mandate".

ASCEND – A program for a curated for consistent high performers from an employee base of Chief Managers and General Managers.

Management Trainee Program

Management Trainee Program

The Management Trainee Program is a robust and comprehensive program that aims at nurturing future talent to take on leadership roles in future, hence we call them the “Game Changers Team”. We believe in providing world class learning opportunity to the MTs recruited from top B-schools of the country.

Our Management Trainee program is designed in a way that it gives an in-depth understanding to the fresh talent that comes in through the management trainee route. They are put through a year long, cross-functional, multi-location program; after successful completion of the stint they are absorbed in their respective functional departments.

The program begins with a week long induction at group and business level, wherein the MTs are given an overview on the group, business and functions, followed by site visits. Here they are introduced to their guides/mentors available to them throughout the MT program. This helps the MTs faster integrate with the business, values, culture. The induction session is followed by cross functional stints which are most relevant to the function the management trainees have been hired for. These stints allow the MTs to experience different roles/ functions and provide a macro view of the organization. During this entire 1 year tenure they have a Senior Leadership Team member attached to them.

The Management Trainee undergoes periodic reviews with their guides/mentors. In addition to this there is a formal midterm and final presentations to the Senior Leadership Team where the Management Trainees are share their experiences and learnings.
