I have been working with Michelin for the last nine years, six of which have been in Sales & Marketing and three years in the Personnel department.

My Key learning’s including:

  1. In the long run, it is better to be as transparent and honest as possible, with people
  2. Team spirit and people empowerment is a much better bet than close control of operations
  3. Michelin people processes are very much world class, especially the concept of career management which is very much in favor of the development of the employee.

Michelin supports in:

  1. Make a career goal and charting the career path to achieve the career goal, with the help of the career manager
  2. have a good work life balance
  3. earning on the job through different roles appropriate with the competencies of the individual and their aspiration
