I am Hemant Singh Pursuing my Post Graduation in Strategy & Operations at NITIE, Mumbai. This article I am writing to describe HowAditya Birla Group(ABG) has made an Impact on My life as an organization in Part A of an article. Part B of an article to set one of the examples of how one can make an impact irrespective of repeated challenges in life and achieve his or her ambitions. Also to set an example of how these challenges help us to get a better version of ourselves.
How Aditya Birla Group(ABG) has made an Impact on My life
# Back in A History
The Birla family was not just centric to set his empire in the early stage of independence by opening various ventures in an area of Jute product in 1919. However, they were instrumental in the independence movement led by Mahatma Gandhi. (1)Ghanshyamdas Birla not only provided the financial backing for Gandhi, but he also participated in the talks with the British that ultimately led to the country's independence. This visionary approach of making strong industrial footprints in the nation has given Indian people various job opportunities post-independence.
# Present Impact
It is needless to say that the group has wide spectrum coverage in the various industry from retail to Manufacturing. I know when I rely on well-planned infrastructure around me the credit somehow goes to Aditya Birla group be it Road constructed with Ultratech Cement or getting good network around me with Vodafone and Idea limited. The group has been also very instrumental in catering the need of trending cloth in their stores be it Pantaloons or Planet Fashion: multi-brand menswear and has become one-stop solution for my most of the needs.
# Giving Back to Society
When you believe in giving back to society then the impact starts getting created and this group has clearly stated this by his CSR action. Training women to become an entrepreneur, providing affordable medical at Aditya Birla Memorial hospital and many more have shown Group's commitment towards the development of the country. Also their educational scholarship scheme” THE TIME TO RECOGNISE TOMORROW'S LEADERS IS TODAY “has given the student a platform to overcome their financial burden.
With all these values of helping society to make Strong Indian Based MNC the group has created a long-lasting impact on me by his actions as an organization.
I did my final year project on “Quality and Productivity Improvement through various partners (vendors) “wherein I developed various Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) on quality and productivity aspect.
During my final year project, I realized that most of the issues I resolved could have been tackled at the very first stage i.e. design and development, by making small changes in design phase using the concepts such as design for manufacturing and assembly.
This incident inspired me to try out my hand in the R&D or Design field. Now here comes hurdle so-called common notion in the industry “How Production Engineering Graduate will be a part of R&D and that to Newbie?”
After several rejections from various reputed companies for R&D profiles. These rejections were building every day a better version of mine toward my Goal of joining R&D profile.
D’ Day: Finally after about an hour of an interview at one of the reputed MNC in fortune 500 lists, I pitched my better version and convinced the company to offer me R&D profile.
# An Impact
As saying goes “when you start loving the challenges. Challenges start loving you back and see you more often”.
After joining as GET, I had to prove myself at Graduate Engineer Trainee review meeting. This meeting was planned with the MD of a company and other leaders in order to gauge GETs for a full-time role. Here my better version which was evolved after several rejections during placement not only helped me to prove my credential as GET (Gradate Engineer Trainee) but at the same time helped me to get awarded as Outstanding Performer among all GETs.
After all these challenges the thing I realized, if you want to grow and make an impact you should start loving challenges. Challenges are one the strongest factor for finding your better version and it is never-ending wheel after one challenge there comes another and we should accept it.
