Winning the 2016 AON Best Employer Award in India

HPE20160525001_800_0_72_srgb.jpg

 Winning and being the best has been embedded in our society. We want to win. We are all familiar with Charles Darwin’s quote of “survival of the fittest”. Most people think that winning is synonymous with outdoing others or “beating” others. At Hewlett Packard Enterprise India, we believe that winning is not about performing better than others, rather it is performing to our highest abilities. And winning the Aon Best Employer Award 2016 is proof to that!

 
The journey leading up to us winning this prestigious award has been absolutely fantastic. For those of you who love roller coaster rides – this has been one of those rides that you will never forget and will always remember with excitement and pride. A total of 113 organizations representing 12 key industries, all together employing approximately 950,000 employees, participated in the Aon Best Employers India 2016 study. A rigorous analysis was run to measure the alignment between “Intent-Design-Experience”, assessed through a CEO survey and interview, a People Practice Index survey and a random employee opinion survey which covered areas on HPE Leadership effectiveness, Employer Brand, High Performance Culture and Employee Engagement.
 
This was an exciting nail biting phase, as we completed each round and awaited the results. I was often taken back to my good ol’ school days when the examination results for that year were nearing. Mixed with sentiments of excitement, apprehension, and a sense of confidence, we waited the results.
 
We cleared the first round of evaluation! And were told we had some really high scores too!
 
You can just imagine our excitement. The entire HR Team was ecstatic, but this was not the end. We had one last phase to complete, in this exciting ride, towards being “best employer 2016” ! The shortlisted set of participants were taken through an employee focused group discussions followed by an intense on-site audit to validate the details provided. The collaboration and partnership, among all HR stakeholders emphasized our HPE promise of “Together, We win the right way”. At the end of the day, we went home with a sense of achievement and pride. The countdown to the Best Employer India 2016 had started!
