Learning & Development (L & D) is a core agenda of Human Resources function at CEAT. A variety of programs are conducted on an ongoing basis to meet the development needs of our employees. These programs range from functional to management to leadership and cover the entire spectrum of functions & hierarchy.
There are 3 aspects to L & D at CEAT: Classroom Programs, E-learning, Bodhi Tree.
Classroom training is off the job training. The training is imparted by a trainer in a classroom set up, the trainer being an expert in the field. Some of our popular programs include:
Business Analysis & Decision Making, First Time Manager, Time Management, Finance for non-Finance, Persuasive Business Communication, Negotiation Skills, Stress Management, Leading High Performance Teams
The programs are organized by Corporate HR as well as Plant HR and Business HR. Program calendar is shared with the employees every month. The employees have the option to self-nominate themselves for any open program.
RPG Virtual Gurukul, our e-learning portal, was relaunched in April 2011 to fulfill diverse and growing training demands of the CEATians. It offers fully automated learning medium and web enabled training solutions spread over 467 courses on topics ranging from IT professional certifications to Crucial Skills for managers.
The courses feature quality content, interacive simulations, graphics and tests to make learning more effective. Alloting time for training can be one of the biggest challenges in transitioning from classroom training to e-learning. Gurukul allows a registered user to take a course at his own pace and convenience. Due to the layered structure of the curriculum, choosing a training module within a category is easy and the user can monitor the progress made on various courses from time to time on the click of a button. The portal is extremely user friendly and the User Guide provides clear cut instructions for navigation.
At CEAT, we believe that the only irreplaceable capital an organization possesses is the knowledge and ability of its people. The old paradigm was "knowledge is power". Today it has to be expanded into "sharing knowledge is power".
The BODHI TREE platform enables and encourages employees to share information, ideas, know-how across the organization and thus build a knowledge sharing culture. BODHI TREE has following branches:
Short articles covering a variety of topics ranging from technical information to issues of socio-cultural matters
Live Knowledge Sharing sessions by employees who attend external training programs
