Our diverse businesses comprise both skilled and unskilled workers. Our skilled employees are mainly graduates, post-graduates, chartered accountants, management graduates and scientists and make up around 50% of our total workforce.
As we diversify into niche agro-products, our staffing needs span a wide range of disciplines. The company’s recruitment strategies are aligned with its overall vision and goals. We focus on hiring staff with a positive attitude and professional skills. A renewed focus on R&D this year means we would be looking at adding qualified agro-scientists and botanists to our workforce with a view to acquiring cutting-edge talent in seed research in the long-run.
We have been a professionally managed organization since inception and the management’s approach mandates active involvement in our inclusive HR program, which plays an active role in supporting our employee’s professional aspirations and in shaping their career path. The management also plays a key role in integrating our workforce across the company’s various subsidiaries and imbibing in them the culture of transparency that is the hallmark of Shiva Global Agro Industries’ businesses.
Indeed, our appraisal program is the proof of this! It weighs an employee’s performance on qualitative as well as quantitative scales, providing the guidance to each person’s career progression path. We provide opportunities for rapid advancement to our employees to match their aspirations and ambitions.
