New Delhi: In the first instance of an Indian automotive major looking to attract overseas talent, Hyundai Motor India Ltd is extending its search for quality manpower beyond the Indian market as a recruitment policy. Recently, it advertised in an international publication to source its manpower needs from the international market.
HMIL, which is a fully owned subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Company of South Korea, is at the moment staffed by Koreans and Indians.
Recognising the fact that a large talent pool exists outside India in the form of non resident Indians (NRI) and also expatriates who would be willing to relocate to India to work in the rapidly growing Indian car market today, HMIL, has opted to look beyond the Indian market.
Coupled with the fact that these executives will bring in their vast experience of developed car markets as well as a fresh perspectives for the company, this is a good opportunity for both the company as well as NRI and expatriates looking to relocate to India.
''We have always believed in hiring the best and if this means extending the boundaries to include those living outside India then we are quite open to it," says Arvind Saxena, senior vice president, sales and marketing, HMIL. "I am sure this will be a good opportunity for many Indians who want to come back home and also for us, as we will be able to get experienced people who have a wealth of knowledge and experience in international markets. This initiative I am sure will attract good people to the Indian automotive industry.''
