Last December I had the opportunity to meet Harsh Mariwala, Marico's Chairman. His story is that of a true scale-up taking the business of $75,000 to the current $850 million top-line.''The first task I undertook'', Mariwala says, ''was hiring an HR leader to support in bringing the right talent to start the company. We hired 40 Senior Managers within the first 6-8 months.'' Today, Marico has over 2,500 employees and is considered among the top FMCG brands in India to work for.
This is the power of HR in growing companies. Such stories tell you a lot about how talent leaders can bring the strategic partnership to scale businesses. In this context, it is our privilege to invite you our mega virtual event - #SMETalent Week from February 13-17.
