Bajaj Capital is an organization that strongly believes in the development of its employees through specialized training programs
Serving customers for over four decades, Bajaj Capital Limited is one of India’s largest distributors of financial products. Ranked #46 in the Great Place to Work® Institute’s Study and #1 in the Industry Category of the Investments sector, the organization has set its own benchmarks in delighting and pleasing clientele. With customer expectations changing drastically over the past few years, this organization believes in changing continuously to adapt to these requirements and at the same time ensuring the highest quality of service rendered.
With employees spread across many locations all over India, it is a challenging task to maintain the spirit of unity and belongingness in such a vast set up. Says Anil Chopra, Group CEO & Director Bajaj Capital, “This has to do a lot with our company’s culture and close integration as one whole. Our team leaders and human resource managing geographic locations are always in close communication with each other to keep themselves updated. The concept of ‘employees’ is alien to us; we refer to everybody as team members. Our members are instructed to give advice to clients, keeping in mind that he/she is a part of the family.”
Bajaj Capital is an organization that strongly believes in the development of its employees through specialized training programs.
