Getting an overall development !

I am interning at Carrier Midea India Private Limited which was set up in Year 2012 by combining the strengths of two global giants in air-conditioning, Carrier and Midea. The joint venture was undertaken to combine Midea’s world-class design and manufacturing expertise in residential air conditioning and Carrier India’s strong pan-India distribution network. This indeed is one of the best opportunities enabled by the office of Career Guidance and Placements at Christ Institute of Management, one of the best Mba colleges in Ghaziabad. I’ m really grateful to our placement officer – Mr. Hadrine H Pereira in continuously guiding me through this. It’s a pleasure working with such a great and a versatile team around. My mentor and every employee in HR department are really very helpful and supportive. Other than providing me corporate knowledge they are helping me in developing my personality and other skills.

Here, I have learnt the importance of HR Auditing, employee personnel files, the relevance of each and every employee document. Besides, I’ve understood the process of selection and recruitment and even assessing the best fit for our organization technically and culturally.
Now most of the HR concepts are clear in my mind because I‘ve understood the logic behind them. I am getting an overall development here in this environment.
Now, I know how to work under pressure, empathising with employees and its relevance in being a true HR professional. Understanding and taking initiatives for the employees are the key parameters here. As an HR Intern, I’ve recommended “Gym Diet” awareness for better health and energy for our employees. This was well appreciated by everyone here and majorly employees have consciously made  effort to improve their eating habits. This helped me in building a strong belief that winning over employees is very much related with their welfare activities.
So at last, I’m thankful to all the faculty members at Christ Institute of Management and my mentor at Carrier  Midea India, Ltd.

Our Teaching Methodology – Using Simulation

A great and practical way to develop strategic thinking and to understand the dynamics of cross- functional decision making has become the need of the hour. Practical exposure for students to understand and fill the business performance gaps with the inclusion of experiential learning has become vital today with any B schools in Delhi NCR.

Christ Institute of Management organized a two day rigorous experiential Simulation Workshop. This was delivered by an industry expert with vast experience. It combined the complexities and the realistic business environment with sessions to equip students with better understanding of business concepts in an integrated manner. This workshop was intended for aspiring leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. It gave thorough insights into the meaning of ‘strategy’ and ability to make cross-functional decisions. Obviously, it was a practical & fun-filled workshop. It had a highly dynamic, reality based and action oriented sessions to appreciate how cross-functional decisions affect overall business Strategy.

The experiential workshop was well organized with concepts introduced at the right moments to enhance the quality of learning experience of our students. These simulations helped to trigger a behaviour change by exposing gaps and present opportunities. They also developed diverse perspectives like a preview of the next level of responsibility, or the view from another department’s perspective. Lot of the mental blocks were cleared. Our Students benefitted most by gaining exposure in applying concepts to real situations.  They converted the theoretical knowledge to practical implementation. They understood the need of formulating and synchronizing strategy with the market forces and stakeholder goals and keeping the day-to-day micromanagement to a strategic role with a long-term perspective. This gave a real sense of tracking financial impact tools and framework in long-term financial impact of any major business decisions. Meanwhile, keeping in mind the optimum positioning and customer centricity and the acute awareness of the market potential.

The simulations helped student managers realize gaps and opportunities. They achieved this by making them take decisions and act and then providing real-time results and feedback on those decisions and the best practices prevalent. Another feature was that students were able to step-into-the-shoes of other functions, departments or business units, to understand their unique pressures and levers. It gave great insights into how a company is actually run and dispels a lot of notions that most of our students should know by working in silos. The simulated environment traces real-world market forces and practical problems.

Few Testimonies from our students

It was a good simulation with thoughtful insight into the market. The way to penetrate into a new market and the financial and sales forecasting decisions to be taken. It basically taught us how to know the customers better and acting accordingly. Thank you so much
