At Kalpataru, we recognise the importance of creating a culture that truly empowers each individual with the ability to take initiatives and so that he can become an integral part of a high-performance team. We have put in place robust Human Resources systems and processes for the achievement of this objective. We ensure that our non-formal but structured approach towards HR gives individuals a platform to interact, express and innovate while delivering at the highest levels of performance. This, in turn, fosters a form of transparency that is prevalent both vertically and horizontally.
Our endeavour for constant improvement has led to the implementation of innovative people practices like an improved Performance Management Systems, Leadership Development Program, Capability- Building Framework and the Career Development System. Add to this, employee connect initiatives like Humantree, Walk-on etc. and we have a highly motivated team focused on achieving the business objectives.
Human Resources at Kalpataru has embarked upon an exercise to analyse, map and improve the level of competency of its employees in a systematic manner. With the existing strong practices of on-the-job training, reinforcing the best practices and formalising them, maximum benefit for the employees and the organisation will be ensured. Through such practices Kalpataru has been nurturing some of the best Real Estate experts, challenging and encouraging them at all times to create unique elements in design and operational excellence, while gearing them with the necessary skill-sets to innovate at the same time.
Talent management system has been worked into the business strategy and implemented in daily processes throughout the company and practiced at all levels of the organization. The strategy includes responsibilities for line managers to develop the skills of their immediate subordinates by providing a level playing field. The focus is on sourcing, developing the talent, integrating plans and processes to track and manage employee talent through performance management program, training opportunities and defining apt remunerations.
Further instilling the essence of "Kalpavriksha - the wish fulfilling tree", the Human Resources portal has been christened as the "Humantree". A virtual world of information sharing and learning, the employees remain connected with the organization and their peers through the Humantree.
All new entrants in the organisation undergo an Extensive Employee Orientation Programme - PARICHAY. The objective is to imbibe in the employees our vision, values and culture to help them to understand and absorb our business and processes.
