Working with HCCB since 1997

Work area : Supply Chain

What does your typical workday look like?

Process quality is not a milestone; rather it is a constant process that requires hands-on monitoring on a day-to-day basis. Multiply this by 12 plants you get the picture of the complexity and the interactions involved. My typical day involves coordinating with quality managers of each of the 12 plants. Identification, follow up and rectification of issues are important aspects of my role. Apart from this, plants are to be visited for on-site consultations, overview and review to ensure everything is on track and working as expected.

What have been the most exciting moments in HCCB?

It is exciting to work at an organization that has quality as its top priority. I would say, rather than a moment the entire journey has been exciting for me. Everyday, I am learning something new. From safety to environment-related issues… the organization approaches everything in a system-oriented way. That in itself is a great learning. How to understand and apply processes for optimal outcomes.

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

The best thing is to work for such a recognized brand. I don't think that there is a corner in the world where the name Coca Cola is not recognized. I love the look people have on their faces when I tell them where I work. Most people have a lot of questions and I try my level best to satisfy their curiosity about our iconic brand. Some even want to come and visit the plant and I try and make that happen. The world needs to know about our awesome processes and people.

What's your biggest inspiration / challenges at work?

The prime challenge is perfect replication. Suppose there is a new line going live or even a brand new plant, will the output be exactly the same as the other existing plants. There are a lot of variables at play. Still, it is our job to ensure that the end product is as per the mandated specifications. There may be many hurdles along the way but working together as a team we surmount them all and that is my greatest inspiration.

What are the 3 things you would tell someone who has never heard about HCCB?

SYSTEMS: At HCCB we have a systematic approach to all the processes, this is great because it helps a complex system run smoothly.

LEARNING: Every day you have something new to learn: an idea, a system, or a new venture. At HCCB things happen at a dizzying pace and learning abounds.

NEWNESS: We are always thinking: 'What Next?'… So new is normal. You are constantly exposed to new products, new line installation, new packaging and operations.
