They say that change starts from within. And that once it begins on the inside, it reflects on the outside. At Taraashna, we believe in embracing change and adapting to it, to become better than ever before. So while words like innovation, transformation and evolution have become the rallying call of today, to us they represent a lot more – the welcome opportunity to enact positive change in all the lives we touch. Promoting wide and diverse participation creates opportunities for bigger and better ideas, as well as improved organizational performance. Inclusion enhances employee engagement, this involvement benefits decision-making and in turn, results in innovative solutions becoming more common. The responsiveness and business dynamism of Taraashna is further encouraged by a major performance management programme that focuses on responsibility, delegation and management by objectives.
The HR Team is fundamental to organizational change and is responsible for ensuring that Taraashna is truly contributing to the ‘nation-building’ program. While closing skills gaps, acquiring and developing talent and tackling daily challenges are some of its critical functions, the HR team also makes a positive difference by embracing diversity, cross functional trainings and increasing opportunities to improve performance, including efforts to close competency gaps, provide individualized support through data driven results from a central analytics team, expand coaching and mentoring and promote individualized training – our training programs are updated continuously based on feedback and needs assessments.
Our Taraashna family has more than 1400 employees, spread far and wide across geographies and they have twice voted us as the preferred ‘employer of choice’ to work with, as per our in-house Employee Satisfaction surveys. Even as we support the career development of present employees, we are actively restructuring our workforce for the future, ensuring that it is stronger, accountable, better-equipped and enabled. We consider our people our greatest asset and want our employees to develop their capabilities to the fullest. This requires us to regularly and systematically address:
- Strategic Alignment of our objectives with business, including Workforce and Succession Planning
- Recruitment & Retention
- Leadership & Knowledge Management
- Results-oriented Performance Management
- Talent Management & Skill building
The Taraashna HR Team is committed to supporting each and every one of our colleagues on the ground and our services extend beyond the workplace through programs like AAGMAN (आगमन), PARICHAY (परिचय), VRIDDHI( वृद्धि), AVGAT (अवगत) and the Employee Connect and Assistance Program. It is our firm belief that happy, healthy employees are productive ones and are best equipped to deliver on company objectives and the Taraashna mission. We look forward to continuing our efforts in making Taraashna one of the finest organisations to work with, for both our current and future employees.
