Aegis believes in a partnership model where an employee and the organization are jointly responsible for individual and enterprise success. Aegis is a young organization, given the fact that it was started only in 2004. With revenue of around $1 billion, Aegis has over 55,000 employees with presence across 56 locations and 13 countries. The diversity of the company is characterized by its people spread across 92 countries, speaking 79 different languages. The diversity in India is also immense, with 23,000 employees spread across different locations in the country.
S M Gupta, Chief People Officer at Aegis says, “The company believes in three talent principles – speak, stay and stretch.” In behaviors, employees consistently speak positively about Aegis to co-workers, potential employees and its customers. Additionally, the company believes that employees should feel a sense of belonging to the company and feel like coming to work. Such a culture has to be augmented by an employee’s desire to go beyond the call of duty.
Talent management at Aegis consequently focuses on four different areas – Employee value proposition, employee engagement, career progression and leadership development. Sandip Sen, Global CEO, says, “Aegis’ employee value proposition - “Get Set Go,” is meant to attract, retain and promote loyalty within the organization. The company hires more than 4,000 people and processes more than a million resumes each year.” Across the employee lifecycle, the company believes in a partnership model where the organization and the employee jointly decide goals and development opportunities for the individual and for the organization. Being in the service industry, the partnership approach helps better management of people costs and serves as a key differentiator.
