Career Opportunities / Life@EMIL

Life at Essel Mining & Industries Limited (EMIL) is about balancing professional development with personal growth.

Learning and growth is a way of life at EMIL. We encourage our peers to learn new skills, acquire new competencies and discover new ways of doing business. It is part of the Aditya Birla Group’s DNA and the reason we have our own centre for learning where a host of innovative educational initiatives take place every year.

Gyana (knowledge) and Udaya (dawn): Two substantive ideas that spell a formidable combination — Gyanodaya, the Aditya Birla Institute of Management Learning. Over the years, Gyanodaya has evolved into a critical meeting point for business leaders across the Group’s diverse businesses and academia. This is the place, which has helped incubate several innovative ideas and practices for enhancing our business competitiveness.
Gyanodaya conducts more than 80 programmes a year, and, as many as 7,000 managers have successfully completed at least one Gyanodaya programme since 2002.
To provide quality programmes, we collaborate with some of the best learning institutions and experts across the world. Many luminaries, including Professor Das Narayandas of the Harvard Business School, Professor Venkat Ramaswamy of the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and Mrs. Barbara Darling from the Hay Group have recently shared their perspectives with our managers.

Continuing education
It’s not enough to learn a new skill. You’ve got to master it. Learning is a continuous process and it calls for time, commitment and patience. When it comes to having our employees acquire new skills, we leave no stone unturned. We have partnered with Singapore’s Universitas 21 to offer an online MBA programme to help our employees acquire the latest management techniques and broaden their vision with a global perspective that is in line with our global ambitions.

Learn at your own pace — you have as many as 250 courses on subjects ranging from basic communication skills to specific technical programmes all at your fingertips!
Over 9,500 e-learners hone their skills virtually every day from over 200 locations across the globe. They have fetched us a phenomenal 93 per cent course completion score, the highest in the world so far, a statistic much higher than the 68 per cent reached by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), which is one of the world’s most respected training bodies.

HR Vaad
A series of webinars that connect HR professionals across levels to disseminate specialised functional knowledge.

We believe the growth of our people is our strength, and that no achievement should go unrecognised. From a simple pat on the back to organising special events, here are a few ways by which we toast our employees’ achievements:

  • The Chairman’s Excellence Awards for individuals: The Chairman’s Excellence Awards are given to individuals who have made an exemplary contribution not only to the business but other organisational issues as well. These include initiatives beyond the call of duty, out-of-the-box thinking, leadership, operational excellence, exceptional collaboration, substantial value addition to the organisation, contribution to institution-building initiatives, exceptional technology usage, contribution towards safety, health and environment, and an accurate demonstration of living and championing organisational values
  • Monthly recognition: ComEx is a monthly event hosted by EMIL, in which top-performing individuals and teams are felicitated and recognised in categories such as best Kaizen, best e-learner, best safety contributor, best 5S zone and best waste elimination team

Our employee community represents diverse cultures, ethnicities and academic streams. The vast swathe of their experiences have enriched EMIL’s character over 70 years, enabling the company to realise its full potential.

In promoting workplace diversity, we are creating an inclusive culture that brings together the best mix of abilities, thinking, and experience on a single platform.

We are invested in diversity because it has helped EMIL build a reservoir of expertise, perspectives, and a powerful workforce that continuesto help us achieve remarkable results.

What is life without a bit of fun!

At EMIL, we think it is important to exercise the body and mind while playing games, eating good food, and listening to music.

Our gym, recreation clubs and young managers’ accommodation are extremely popular social spaces for EMIL employees to interact and hangout.

Our people’s calendars are dotted by events throughout the year – sports tournaments, get-togethers for celebrating festivals, and other happy occasions like the annual Anand Mela and Junoon are a great hit.

There is always some fun happening in the midst of all the hard work at EMIL, and we encourage all our employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance to keep them energised.

We are firmly grounded in the conviction that our people create our business. EMIL has grown strong and successful for almost a century because of their sustained creativity, courage, tenacity, and unwavering commitment.

Applying for a job is easy!
We are always on the lookout for bright minds who are constantly in the pursuit of knowledge, can think out-of-the-box, thrive amidst challenges, and dare to dream big.
