A “Great Place to Work” is one that possesses a culture imbued with transparency and trust among employees as well as engagements across all levels, driving a common goal of continuously fostering Positive People’s Values beyond business.
The Great Place to Work Institute conducts annual surveys based on a Trust Index and a culture audit to rank companies in India based on employee experience, the credibility of management, respect for people, impartiality in the workplace, pride, and camaraderie of individuals. Additionally, it focuses on all ‘people policies’ governing the employee’s life cycle from onboarding to the exit stage.
Securing 70% across the trust parameters, Aequs has been certified as a ‘Great Place to Work’ by the Institute in its 2020-21 listing. This endorses Aequs’ focus on employer-friendly initiatives and skilling programs offered to its employees. This certification is a testimony to our commitment to building a culture of excellence across the organization’s levels while creating a holistic growth environment.
Concentrated focus on nurturing “niche skills”
Aequs’ various niche learning and skill training interventions for its workforce aim to bridge the burgeoning skill gap in the Indian manufacturing industry. As one of the global leaders of precision engineering and manufacturing for the aerospace industry, Aequs introduced Industrial Knowledge Center (IKC) to provide a 30-month certification program to fresh engineering graduates and diploma holders. Aequs’ in-house classroom and the on-the-job training center (IKC) caters to the workforce’s varied and specialized needs.
The learning programs at Aequs are developed to address and overcome the existing and potential challenges that an employee may experience, ranging from managerial skills through the Young Leaders’ Program to more technical and niche skills. In line with Aequs’ commitment to the people-centricity of its processes, our intranet portal also includes an onboarding program that aims to give the new hires an overarching perspective of the entire Aequs Group, helping them easily navigate the workplace as they start working.
C-suite learning and development for growth
The culture of an organization flows from the CxO-level to the shop floor. Leader engagement with employees helps ensure that the organization is transforming in an ever-changing environment.
At Aequs, the leadership development initiatives are channeled through the Aequs Learning Academy and other partnerships to conceptualize, launch, and deliver leadership effectiveness workshops as well as nominate senior members of the organization to the management development program.
Cultivating a performance mindset
Aequs’ employee branding initiatives are the cornerstone of its Employee Value Proposition (EVP). Aequs believes in equal opportunity for all its employees and will persevere to create new opportunities for its employees to learn, develop, and hone their competencies, thereby positively affecting their career growth.
This certification is a testimony to our commitment to building a culture of excellence across the organization’s levels while creating a holistic growth environment.
We encourage and promote best practices to be adopted at Aequs across all our processes wherein employees are offered meaningful assignments across functions and are encouraged to ask questions, and their excellence and contributions are recognized through the Aequs Excellence Awards. Our performance and evaluation systems are objective and transparent, with an inbuilt feedback system to enable constructive and forward-looking conversations.
The Great Place to Work recognition has been inspiring, signifying a level of trust and pride running through the organization and an exceptionally motivated and talented workforce striving for excellence.
