Godrej returns to B-schools with Godrej LOUD

LOUD is Godrej’s alternative to hiring through a standard summer process on campus

Godrej Industries Limited and Associate Companies (GILAC) is back with the fourth edition of Godrej LOUD (Live Out Ur Dream) 2015, a platform to help young and talented India realise personal dreams, which had been shelved due to career or sponsorship constraints. Launched in 2012, LOUD is Godrej’s alternative to hiring through a standard summer process on campus. Winners of LOUD get sponsorship and mentoring support from Godrej and a pre placement summer offer.

Mr. Vivek Gambhir, Managing Director, Godrej Consumer Products Limited and Mr. Sunil Kataria, Business Head - India and SAARC, Godrej Consumer Products Limited will host LOUD at the Faculty of Management Studies in Delhi.

Ms. Nisaba Godrej, Executive Director, Godrej Consumer Products Limited said, "Godrej LOUD is our way of finding passionate young leaders. We believe that if someone is really passionate about something, even if it has nothing to do with what we do, it is likely they will bring that drive with them to Godrej."

Mr. Sumit Mitra, Head, Group Human Resources & Corporate Services said, “We are happy to announce the launch of the 4th edition of Godrej LOUD. The past three years have been a testimony of the growing popularity of this initiative. This year, we are also introducing a LOUD masterclass with Prof. Henry Jenkins, a globally renowned media scholar.”

Mr. Vivek Gambhir, Managing Director, Godrej Consumer Products Limited said, “We encourage our team members to explore their ‘whole selves’, because we believe that passionate and rounded individuals make for better team members. Godrej LOUD is a great example of how we are connecting with passionate and creative young India, who we hope to nurture as future Godrej leaders.”

This year, Godrej LOUD visited 12 campuses, including the Management Development Institute, Gurgaon and the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, Delhi.

In 2014, the initiative saw a tremendous response with over 1600 applications from across 12 campuses. 14 finalists were shortlisted to share their dreams at the Godrej Headquarters in Mumbai and 7 dreamers got the opportunity to live out their dreams. Akhil Kalia, one of our LOUD winners from last year, visited the Terra-di-Motori in Italy and sketched automobiles in the factory museums of manufacturers like Lamborghini, Ferrari, Pagani and Maserati.Kurmapu Keerthi Sindhuri, another winner from LOUD 2014, installed a hygienic piping system in a temple to recover Abhishekam offerings and distribute them among the poor.
