Work area : Supply Chain

What does your typical workday look like?

In a dynamic organization like HCCB no day is 'typical'. There is always something new and exciting a foot. And in the midst of all that come opportunities to learn something new… that helps me and my team to do things better. Creating connections across levels and encouraging feedback almost on a daily basis is a prime focus. Across levels, I interact to understand what is working well and what the concern areas are. Improving overall effectiveness of the processes and helping the team to achieve success is an important part of the everyday routine.

What have been the most exciting moments in HCCB?

I can think of a number of them. One was when I was tasked with setting up a COE (center for operational excellence) at the Bangalore unit. For an excellence-focused organization like HCCB to entrust me with this responsibility was exciting. This assignment exposed me to the vast expertise and best practices available across the Coca Cola Company and also explore outside the industry t understand best practices.

The second was when I got the chance to head Moula Ali factory where we were marking a new journey on TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) program excellence. TPM excellence encompassed the entire leadership of the unit and the common goal of improving processes and achieving manufacturing excellence. We also applied for JIPM (Japanese Institute of Plant and Maintenance) award. We won in first the go and I got the opportunity to go and collect this award on behalf of the unit and that is one of my most exciting moments and high point in my career in HCCB.

What part of your job / role do you love to talk about to your friends and family?

Passion and Ownership. The company is infused with the Passion for Winning. It is evident in everything we do. From the smallest to the biggest things. When this company has formed into two different companies- Coca Cola India and HCCBPL. The estimate for break even was 6-7 years… we achieved in half the time. Ownership and the freedom to explore ideas is another important aspect. The company gives the younger leadership a platform to think out of the box, try something new. Everyone is encouraged to think and act like an owner and go out and explore possibilities. The result is a sense of go getting and pushing boundaries and thinking anew, great for the person and even better for the organization.

What's your biggest inspiration / challenges at work?

When you are part of a team of thinking, intelligent and questioning individuals, it's a challenge to align all of them fully to an idea. This inspires me no end. What is more powerful than an idea that percolates across the team and drives them to a greater purpose. The challenge is to transmit the idea across levels so that it energizes and inspired the entire team.

What are the 3 things you would tell someone who has never heard about HCCB? (Talk about the 3 things you will tell someone who wants to work with HCCB)

Community Outreach: At HCCB the larger community is an important focus. From building communities to water conservation, from health & wellness to and water recycling we are actively doing our bit.

Transparency: The kind of transparency we conduct the business with… we have become the benchmark on any activities we do.

Opportunity: The sky is literally the limit for a new associate. There is no better platform than HCCB to leapfrog onto the career trajectory of your choice.
