Careers Testimonials

I have grown as a professional

What I love about Mahindra is that it allows you to contribute without any boundaries. I have learnt tremendously from the interactions with the leadership, exposure in prestigious Global forums, opportunity to be part of Strategic Group initiatives like the Mahindra Universe, etc. My trajectory here has enabled me to understand corporate governance, legal dynamics, gain credence as a Board Member.

A new challenge everyday

After finishing college in the United States, I had to make a decision between staying in New York or moving to India and joining the Mahindra Group. I chose Mahindra, as I was excited by the prospect of joining one of Asia’s most successful corporate institutions on its path to becoming a global company. As a part of a team that leads the group’s entry into the video gaming, I helped establish a strategic partnership agreement with one of the most accomplished professional gaming organizations in the world. Work never gets boring here!

Deputy Manager, Global Recruit Program
At Mahindra, we think that it is our young talent who will power the drive to our aspiration of becoming a top global brand. Check out how we identify and groom young talent
The Group Management Cadre (GMC)

The Group Management Cadre (GMC) programme recruits highly talented MBA graduates, empowering them to jumpstart their careers in key positions at Mahindra. We hire from the best B Schools, and currently have over 200 GMCs within the Group. The GMC is a fast-paced, challenging programme that grooms high potential managers for leadership positions over a 12 to 15 years time horizon.

In the past, GMCs have coordinated HR transformation in the Automotive and Farm Equipment sectors, developed new structures for career growth both horizontally and vertically; taken on the responsibility of Brand Management for the groundbreaking Yuvraj tractor; and joined the Mergers & Acquisitions team to execute high-profile deals. In 2014, Nielsen’s B-Campus Track Survey ranked the Mahindra Group Management Cadre Scheme as the seventh best programme.

Global Recruits Programme

Each year, we recruit five to seven graduates from top American universities to live and work with us in India for two years. We believe that the global recruits improve our cultural fluency, and bring with them new perspectives that expand our creativity and world-view. And for the students, this program affords an exceptional opportunity to gain high-responsibility business experience in an international context.

As a Global Recruit, you’ll spend your first year in a strategy consulting role within the Group Strategy Office. A year later, you will be transferred to one of Mahindra’s diverse businesses, at the end of which you may be invited to continue your tenure with Mahindra for a longer period of employment.

Engineering Trainees Programme

Every year, we hire outstanding graduates across the engineering disciplines to work predominantly in our Automotive, Farm Equipment, and IT businesses, as well as in select positions in other sectors. We seek independent thinkers with a strong work ethic who are comfortable taking risks with new ideas, and working as team players. In particular, the Automotive and Farm Equipment sectors look for talented mechanical, civil, and electrical/electronics engineers, while the IT sector seeks computer science, electronics, and IT engineers.

Group Management Cadre Summer Internship Programme

The Group Management Cadre (GMC) Summer Internship is our flagship programme for recruiting GMCs. Close to 60% of our final GMC recruits are hired after the successful completion of their summer internship assignments with us. Every year, summer interns from India’s premier B Schools work with us, after which we roll out pre-placement interviews and offers to hire a select few. Interns are allocated challenging projects, in various functions across our businesses.

Mahindra War Room

The Mahindra War Room is a platform for future leaders from India’s top B Schools to create innovative & disruptive solutions for the Group.

The 2014 edition featured 2,912 teams from 36 campuses from across the country. Mahindra’s leaders provided the students with an insight into the Group, and an overview of the business challenges they faced in the form of caselets. Students selected caselets that were of interest to them, and after a grueling four months that featured multiple rounds, the winning team was Team Centurions’ from the Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Pune.

In addition to substantial empowerment and abundant learning opportunities, we provide significant opportunities for career growth. High performers can see themselves working in different roles, sometimes across businesses and geographies en-route to higher responsibilities and positions.

Group Level Programmes

Mahindra Institute of Quality (MIQ)

Business Unit Programmes

Young CEO Programme at Tech Mahindra

The Young CEO programme at Tech Mahindra is designed to encourage a startup mindset, and nurture young leaders to take on significant roles early in their careers. Once selected, Young CEOs are entrusted with executive responsibilities in some of the more strategic areas like leading M&A opportunities, or growing new business initiatives/platforms/joint ventures/geographies. This ‘One-in-a-Box’ model provides the Young CEOs a unique opportunity to demonstrate their leadership skills and contribute significantly.

Leadership Development Program at SsangYong

This three-month course aims to develop the core competency of SYMC executive leaders. It consists of a leadership diagnosis, simulation-exercise, and the establishment of Individual Development Plans (IDP). The SLDP helps our senior leaders grow to become highly competent professionals who drive our next phase of global growth.

Chakravyu at Mahindra Finance

Chakravyu is an innovative employee initiative by Mahindra Finance that unlocks hidden potential and fast-tracks careers. This deeply immersive seven-day programme features 38 of the best performing employees who venture into rural India, Mahindra Finance’s predominant market, to compete in individual and team challenges. Cell phones and laptops are not allowed, with participants reliant on their wit and wisdom to survive and thrive. Aligned to our core philosophy, Chakravyu challenges its competitors to Rise to the occasion, fosters a culture of collaboration, and allows them to experience rural India first-hand.

The Shadow Boards

As an innovative platform that usually jumpstarts careers within the Group, ten promising managers below the age of 35 are hand-picked from each Mahindra company or division, and are asked to think of themselves as the management committee and  work on a key strategic opportunity/problem. Senior management review their projects and recommendations, with many of the recommendations finding their way into actual implementation within the business. Some successful work of the past includes recommendations for the diversification into commercial vehicles, creation of a 24/7 helpline, a more personal approach to distributing increments, and even a leap into a bold acquisition!

At Mahindra, we believe that diversity drives innovation and superior performance. In the last few years, we have put in a lot of effort in making Mahindra a truly diverse workplace. 

Our journey began with the formation of the Group Diversity Council in November 2012. In March 2013, we launched our "What Does Diversity Mean to You?” initiative, defining the diversity spectrum for the Group and forming the first three Sector Diversity Councils. In December that year, we showcased our Diversity & Inclusion Vision & Commitment, and launched our Diversity Portal. March 2014 saw us form nine Sector Diversity Councils, and a month later, we incorporated Diversity & Inclusion in "The Mahindra Way" framework.

The last three years has seen us launch a successful "Rise Through Diversity" programme, which entails Group-wide sensitization workshops, external benchmarking, and addresses by select speakers. Our current focus pans the areas of generational intelligence, women-mentoring, and establishing an impactful network of women.
