Every year, VOLTECH HR alone trains close to 36 batches of 30 candidates, in an in-house programme, followed by a written test, and subsequent deployment in field. Candidates who do not meet these requirements are given further training and mentoring before they are inducted.
VOLTECH HR team ensures close to 100% induction rate for shortlisted candidates. Being a result driven effort, we strive for 100% pass rate in all programmes, creating a much more involved environment and atmosphere where individual attention and mentoring is given to trainees as well as the inclusion of a continuous evaluation system whereby trainees’ progress and competencies are assessed systematically throughout the duration of the programme.
VOLTECH HR team comprises of 15 specialists whose areas of interest focuses the training efforts across 8 key areas. The 15 specialists are certified professionals with relevant field experience and practical knowledge, and impart training consistent with the best training standards of the Industry. The HR training Programme is an ISO certified programme that meets international standards in all aspects of its curriculum, pedagogy and delivery. The eight key areas of focus are the following:
First Aid Training
Environmental Management & Conservation
In addition to its skill-development activities, the employees are periodically provided with refresher course as well as new training programmes to keep them at the cusp of every new technological breakthrough in the industry. It is a direct consequence of these efforts that has seen its most tangible results in the commercial and technological successes that VOLTECH’s Engineering and Renewable Energy divisions have enjoyed in the recent years.
We particularly focus our efforts in maintaining and upholding employee satisfaction at the workplace, increasing employee engagement, and reducing turnover. Field based employees are regularly trained and given refresher sessions to engage them in direct communication with the head office, where such interactions also provide an adaptive feedback system which works in tandem with the existing functions of the Department.
Reducing near miss incidents and workplace accidents are another important function of these activities, with employee injuries and fatalities being routinely associated with contributing factors such as stress, fatigue, poor training, lack of knowledge of technical aspects of the work, poor levels of motivation, and ineptness in first-aid recovery procedures. The Safety wing of the HR team, engages the field Engineers continuously both on-site as well as off-site, at all domestic and international locations to ensure that such incidents are minimized, and completely eliminated.
VOLTECH HR mentors individual trainees, with the active involvement of the heads of various divisions, who are among the most elite and experienced professionals within the field. VOLTECH employees are not just exposed to the domestic market, but are also brand ambassadors for the company in more than the two dozen locations where its presence is felt, from the far-east, to the near east and Africa, as well as continental Europe.
The HR Department of VOLTECH selects, recruits, trains and mentors skilled candidates through one of the most rigorous and painstaking process of employment within the industry. Each candidate is assessed based on a number of parameters, and is mandatorily passed through several levels of interviews with every department of the organization before his recruitment. The HR Department of VOLTECH is one of the most innovative departments among corporate houses, adhering to the most stringent norms and standards established within the industry.
Every training programme is ISO-Certified, and is considered the benchmark in the industry, and potential trainees are recruited on the basis of references from company employees, wel-wisher and campus interview from various colleges. The training programmes are conducted at two locations, at VOLTECH Techno Park in Kovur, and the VOLTECH Eco Tower in Ayyapanthangal. The VOLTECH Techno Park facility has a capacity to train 100 students in a batch at a single time, and has three full-time managers, and a rigorous curriculum vetted by Quality Control
During the two-week program, the trainees will take part in several demanding work assignments. Our own considerable experience has shown that this time frame offers participants the deepest possible insight into our company and the interesting tasks being performed. The program’s highlight is no doubt the certification, which will signify competence and skill acquisition in the trainees, making them ready for immediate deployment
Based on the candidate’s qualifications and personal interests as well as VOLTECH’s business requirements, the candidate and the training team jointly craft the nuances of the training delivery. One thing is certain: VOLTECH HR will support the candidate throughout the entire program while also helping the candidate to coordinate his/her assignments.
The training and development programme is a forum for cultural interchange and acclimatizes the cosmopolitan VOLTECH culture and corporate philosophy to the participants’ right from inception. VOLTECH HR ensures the training programme integrates the candidates into the company’s interdisciplinary and multifunctional global network at an early stage of their careers. This is the key to ensuring successful posting of trainees at any of the domestic and international locations of the company, as well as client sites.
Corporate Sensitization: The training programme is highly interaction oriented, and utilizes a formative assessment methodology to continually monitor the trainees’ progress. The interpersonal interactions and exchanges with the HR team ensures that the trainees are sensitized to the corporate climate and culture, while also helping imbibe strong inter-personal skills, cultural sensitization in a diversity pool, cultural adaptation and customer centricity in all official transactions. Social Etiquette forms a crucial part of this training.
The training programme is divided into three clear-cut categories. Classroom centric, Case centric and Experience centric. The classroom centric component provides subject intensive training, including technical product education, operation and maintenance of equipment and product range. The case centric methods use practical experiences and incidents from the site and the company offices to develop problem solving skills in the trainees, while also giving them insights into the functional aspects of their jobs. Case centric methods are an excellent opportunity to provide a third-person’s view of the training process, and allow the trainees to share different perspectives. Safety training is case intensive. The experience centric component deals with actual skill acquisition on site, learning on the go, and working concurrently with the best professionals from VOLTECH in important client locations.
VOLTECH’s Training and Development division has gone to great lengths in putting structures in place for optimizing trainees’ learning processes. The training calendar is designed in such a way as to provide candidates with deep insight into company operations, invaluable experience, and lasting contacts. The personal mentoring component of the training process involves a high degree of interpersonal interactions and transactions which shape the trainees and help them develop a proper outlook towards their future careers.
Functional Area Training: The training calendar is a prelude to familiarizing candidates with the diverse fields of activity of VOLTECH’s divisions. In these divisions, the trainees would be required to work in different functional areas.
In this way, trainees obtain a comprehensive overview of Siemens, while gaining expertise, ideas and developing lasting relationships even after the conclusion of the program. The continual training programme serves as a refresher course to constantly keep employees engaged and to encourage a systemic interaction with the VOLTECH HR to continually improve and improvise upon its processes and systems.
