Manpower planning enables HR department to project its short to
long term needs on the basis of its departmental plans so that it can
adjust its manpower requirements to meet changing priorities. The
more changing the environment the department is in, the more the
department needs manpower planning to show:
the number of recruits required in a specified timeframe and
the availability of talent

surpluses or deficiencies in certain ranks or grades
availability of suitable qualified and experienced successors
Sources of Recruitment:

Experienced talent is recruited from the industry. These lateral
recruits go through multiple rounds of interviews with the senior
management before they are accepted onboard. On joining there is a
formal induction into the company and introduction to people and

Tata Projects regularly visits the campuses of leading engineering and
management institutes to recruit talented students. We believe that
this is an important factor in keeping our company at the cutting edge
of the industry. New ideas and fresh approaches are introduced into
the organization in this manner on a regular basis.

The selection procedure involves resume submission, group

discussions and a few rounds of interviews. Once hired, the fresh
recruits undergo rigorous induction programme to understand the
company, its culture and know what exactly is expected from them.
We invest a lot into this group in terms of training and mentoring by
senior management so that they can be groomed to take up
leadership roles in the organization.
Consultants are recruited based on project requirements. The
duration of the assignment is solely need based and can vary from 1
to 12 months on a part-time or full-time basis. As these are ad hoc
recruitments, it is best to keep an eye on this section for openings

engineering and management Institutes. The summer internships are
for a period of 8-12 weeks from April to July.
Students are selected for these internships from campuses as well as
from applications directly sent to the company. These internships
provide hands-on exposure and an opportunity to apply theoretical
learning to real-life situations.
We use this avenue as a way to identify talent that we would like
recruit. It is not unusual for us to make a pre- placement offer to
students who can join us after completing their education.
