Lateral Hires Training

The Induction program typically extends for 1 – 2 weeks for lateral hires. Essentially, it focuses on immersing new hires into the HCL culture, philosophy and engagements. The engagement specific induction might extend from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the nature of the engagement.

Behavioral Learning and Development

Not only has HCL identified roles at different employee levels, but also associated competencies desired to fulfil the demands of the roles. Several developmental initiatives are available to the employees across the organization. It helps in building and enhancing critical competencies for different roles through Professional Development, Leadership Development or Sales Learning programs. A unique learning road map approach allows employees and their reporting managers to identify needs and the training path they need to walk on. The courses are available in classrooms, webinars and e-learning formats which are in partnership with a top global virtual learning organization. These courses make way for greater reach and ease of access. All the programs are designed with the ultimate business objective in mind. And that results in enhanced productivity, increased customer satisfaction, and effective leadership transitions.
