As a group, Vedanta believes that “human capital” is the strongest asset and identifying internal talent and elevating them to enhanced leadership roles has been the source of advantage for the group. In order to keep the talent pipeline updated with the right knowledge, skills and attitude, Vedanta focuses on competency development of the employees to meet the current and future needs of the business through robust talent development initiatives ensuring several interventions for retaining our talent. The key focus has been to help the organization adapt to a “New way of working” by optimizing processes, reducing costs, consolidating and enhancing roles across levels and building internal capabilities. At VZI, we offer employees an environment that is safe, rewarding, and supportive. We endeavour to empower employees by providing an engaging workplace that enables them to realize their full potential.
Growing at Vedanta
Vedanta follows a multi-dimensional approach for leadership development & capability building to address its short, medium- and long-term plans. Inputs for organization-wide change initiatives are championed by the leadership and are identified from the long-term business strategies and business needs. To gauge the appropriate level of potential of the current talent pool, Vedanta has designed and deployed a comprehensive Talent Management framework in close partnership with the Senior Leadership Team (Executive Committee and CEOs). The talent management framework has resulted in building a talent-focused organization that assures that capable incumbents are manning critical roles and ensure risk mitigation.
Women In Mining
VZI is particularly focused on the inclusion and advancement of women in its workforce. The (albeit slowly) changing face of mining presents a growing number of opportunities for women. We always seek to hire a woman in a new or vacant position. We also look at internal promotions, prioritising women with potential, often putting those women into deputy EXCO positions, and providing strong support and mentoring network, which gives them the opportunity to grow into those positions.
