Welspun Group on strengthening a data-literate workforce

In conversation with Rajendra Mehta, ex-President and Group CHRO of Welspun Group and Minaxi Indra of upGrad for Business, we explore how the most impactful skilling programs are aligned with a long-term growth strategy.


When designing learning interventions, a future-first lens is critical. Organisations must outline how role accountability will transform in the next 3-5 years and what capabilities need to be added or enhanced to remain relevant and competitive. For Welspun Group, the priority was to embrace the innovations of Industry 4.0 and become a leader in the textile industry. This culminated in their partnership with upGrad for Business, where they launched the Data Analytics Certification Program to build digital competencies across all levels of the enterprise. 

But along with bridging the skill gaps, the focus was also to enable career growth journeys for their people to remain relevant in the changing business landscape. This also has a direct impact on employee continuity and opens up avenues for innovation. In our exclusive, one-of-a-kind multimedia flipbook brought to you in partnership with upGrad for Business, titled Amplifying Growth, Achieving Impact: Customer Success Stories, we explore this successful learning journey that had the twin benefits of automation and future-ready upskilling.
