Aurobindo Pharma has a team of more than 9500 professionals working at its various divisions - API manufacturing, formulation manufacturing, chemical R&D, formulation R&D and overseas operations. About 80 per cent of these employees are graduates, post graduates and PhDs.
Key HR Initiatives
To keep pace with the changing global business scenario, Aurobindo has taken up various change -management initiatives. One of them is Aurobindo Achieving Competitive Edge or A2CE. This initiative has created a forum to tap creative talent among employees, bring significant improvement in the form of high productivity and quality, realize better asset utilization and manpower deployment. Teams and individuals are rewarded and recognized for project deliverables and learning. A2CE has reached out to Aurobindo employees through monthly project reviews and a portal a2ce.com that shares best practices with employees.
2. Mission Quality
This initiative aims to create and augment the quality culture across the organization and to assess our staff and executives in quality standards compliance and their commitment to quality. An assessment based on key performance indices and quality metrics has been carried out at our Formulations unit to identify Master Quality Leaders (MQL) who will facilitate our quality initiatives across the organization.
This employee engagement initiative - a bi-monthly employee newsletter, carries news from all units including customer / regulatory audits, new product approvals, launches and HR initiatives.
