Tata AutoComp Systems inaugurates Business Leaders’ Development Centre

To invest in growing the human capital of the organisation

Pune: Tata AutoComp Systems (Tata AutoComp) inaugurated its new Business Leaders’ Development Centre today. Located at Banner in Pune, the new development centre will aim at enhancing the capabilities of its employees across all levels.

Speaking on the occasion, RS Thakur, MD and CEO, Tata AutoComp, said, “Tata AutoComp has always followed a practice of building and nurturing internal talent. We lay great emphasis on training to build the competencies of our people and thereby enhance the knowledge quotient of our company.”

The Business Leaders’ Development Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art classrooms and a well-furnished library. Tata AutoComp has recently tied up with various educational institutes to run specialised courses for its employees. Some of these include BE degree for diploma holders in partnership with BITS-Pilani as well as MBA programme with Symbiosis University, Pune.

Explaining the relevance of training in the auto-component industry, Gajendra Chandel, president and group HR head, elaborated, “Continuing professional education and building managerial competence plays a vital role in not only enhancing the knowledge quotient of our organisation, but also in improving employee motivation. In the auto-component business, the pressures of day-to-day work are so high that one seldom gets the opportunity to grow oneself. In the past we have been conducting quite a few training workshops for our junior and middle level management colleagues. Through this centre, we are now creating a facility that will impart regular training across the board to all our colleagues.”

Tata AutoComp had over the past two years launched various programmes aimed at its leadership team such as CEO master-class as well as Theory of Constraints.
