Employee First - HCL TechnologiesHCL’s Employees First philosophy helped fuel a surge in the company’s growth over the past five years, including during the depths of economic downturn. It has attracted the attention of academics (Harvard Business School did a case study on the approach), the media (Fortune magazine has characterized HCL management as “the world’s most modern”) and analysts (a Gartner research report highlighted the customer benefits of “Employees First”).

 

This innovative management approach is described in a book by Vineet Nayar, former Vice Chairman & former Joint Managing Director of HCL Technologies, Employees First, Customers Second: Turning Conventional Management Upside Down (Harvard Business Press, 2010). The book tells the story of HCL’s transformational journey, as the company recognized the need for change, created a culture of trust through transparency, turned the organizational pyramid on its head and shifted the responsibility of change from the office of the CEO to employees.
 
But the journey isn’t over. Employees First is a living concept that continues to evolve. One recent insight: Everyone, whatever the job, is an employee - one who can create value for customers – or the world – if given the opportunity to do so. Call it the “Employees-First Effect.”  Watch the video  -
