"Treat people with respect and concern;
Provide opportunities to learn, contribute and advance;
Recognise and reward initiative, innovativeness and creativity."
At Murugappa Group, the above vision statement and
a firm belief that in the strength of our people lies the strength
of our group, is the major driving force. The 32,000 strong Murugappa
team has people from diverse locations, different cultures, speaking
different languages but all blending seamlessly into a common work
culture that is both strong and vibrant.
Diversity - in Business and Opportunities
A diverse industrial conglomerate, Murugappa Group has interests
in abrasives, engineering, sugar, fertilizers, financial
services and plantations. Joining our group, gives an employee the
rare opportunity and choice, to work in diverse industries under
a common umbrella. Inter-departmental transfers are also options
laid open to employees, thus honing their skills and facilitating
all round development. It is not rare to find a hard-core finance
person moving into marketing and then heading a business; a technical
professional getting into strategic planning and becoming the CEO.
We are an organisation that encourages and appreciates creativity,
innovation and new initiatives by employees. Thus, with cross business
and cross function movements, growth opportunities offered are endless.
Structured People Processes
At Murugappa, we have clearly-defined and specifically-designed
programmes for our people to realise our vision of growth and progress.
People development processes such as TQM, balanced scorecard, policy
deployment, competency-based development, business leadership programme
and many others groom our people into competent leaders and global
managers, ready to take on the highly competitive world of today.
Building Our Leaders
Development Programmes help our people identify and work on areas
that are critical to the Group's competitive advantage: globalisation,
innovative processes, managing diversity and change and growing
self-awareness. Different stages of an employee's career are planned
methodically by putting in place processes of succession planning,
campus relationship programmes and management trainee schemes.
The Management Development Centre (MDC) established
in 2004 is the platform on which leadership building programmes
for our senior executives across the Group are conducted. The overall
philosophy of these programmes is founded on the belief that the
grooming of business leaders requires a multi-pronged approach involving
conceptual and reflective learning, a deep insight into one's own
beliefs, values and attitudes, action learning and internalisation
for better effectiveness as individuals and leaders.
An Employer with a Difference
At Murugappa we have a judicious blend of a strong value system
and evolving HR practices. We strive to be not merely another employer
but a group that vests power in its people to see the organisation
grow. We offer you not just a job but also a satisfying career;
not just a place of work but a work-place of the future.
We are a Group that believes in the power
of our people
