One needs to be discipline because today in the corporate world is to have a very disciplined work life and good ethics. So apart from bookish knowledge it is very important to have practical knowledge.
- Sir, How does your company reward good performance ?
As it is known that in a company like Tata Motors which is a global company and it has a employee strength of 75000 so there is no such parameters as to we need to do or we should do but there are a lot of appraisal for our employees like the one we have the Employee of the Month accompanied by awards for people who come up with new initiatives. In Tata Motors actually we have lots of reviews for people to enhance their skills, experiment and to come up with new innovative ideas. Tata Motors is a very employee friendly company where people have the space to explore themselves.
- Sir, What according to you make your company successful in the motor sector ?
Automobile sector is a big sector n if one goes through this sector and have a look at the Auto Plan till 2026, India is having a very aggressive planning as it is a part of Make in India and Skill in India project. So we at Tata Motors are forming an integral part of Make in India concept as we are the leading Auto Maker in the country so these are some benefits which push us ahead and we also have some new launches this year and this is how we are growing and this sets us apart.
- Sir, What are the new projects that you are working on and the ideas ingrained by you for making them successful in the market ?
Well that is Confidential and you will come know about by watching the advertisements in next couple of days but as I mentioned that we always look forward to innovations and and because of that we had three launches last year and this year too we are coming up with two to three launches. We have products both in commercial and passenger. We are coming up with advertisements and revealing the teasers and we have also showcased our products in the Auto Expo this year but I could name the products as these are code names which will change later on but any how we are working fantastically on our products and you would get to see them very soon.
- Sir, What are the things that you regarded during your journey ?
It is very tough question, basically I believe in hard-work and I think that there is no replacement to hard-work. An average person can become extra ordinary if he/she puts in dedicated hard-work in to his work and an extra ordinary person can become average if did not put efforts in order to perform good. So hard-work ,Work Ethics and precision in work is very important and it is very difficult for an individual to carry all these at one point of time but one can at least attempt to have a detailing in his performance. I would like to share an instance that when I joined my first company Maruti I learned that in order to analyze any problem it is very important for an individual to do a site visit and then find solution and not in board rooms . In Tata Motors , the work ethics and the team work are the things which I have learned during my journey so far and I want every individual to inculcate these qualities in themselves.
6.Sir, One such incident where it was difficult for you take decision and the measures you took to overcome that situation ?
In the field of sales there are plenty of such issues where it is crucial to take decision and it is difficult to isolate one. I remember there is one such situation which is very close to me is once we did a project in order to increase Vista sales as at time it was not doing well in West Bengal and it was difficult because once the vehicle gets stuck into the stock it becomes difficult for not only the channel but also for us, so then we called for a meeting and we as a team came up with a very innovative idea of Upgradation that is from first time buyers to second time buyers and this change was successful not only in West Bengal but in incorporated entire East and so the sales of Vista got short- up at that time and this is one such incident which I always recollect.
