Five Indian organizations viz. Aditya Birla, Bharti Airtel, Hindustan Unilever, ICICI Bank and Wipro featured in The 2011 Global Top companies for Leaders, thereby demonstrating their passion and commitment to leadership development. The 2011 Global Top companies for Leaders is an initiative by Aon Hewitt which is an outcome based on the company’s leadership strategy, succession planning, techniques for identifying high-potential junior employees, and much more. This year, US companies no longer dominated global leadership development, even though legendary talent factories like IBM, P&G and GE still appear on the list.
The leadership development programs of these organizations are practical, relevant and aligned to their business goals and help them gain an edge over their peers. So, be it sending leadership SWAT teams around the world or sending young executives out to live in Indian villages so that they can understand the needs of impoverished rural consumers, or be it seniors showering attention on juniors; the ‘Global Top Companies for Leaders’ go beyond the call of duty when it comes to leadership development.
