Working at Mahindra is an experience steeped in freedom to experiment in a field of interest, with a built-in system of recognition and rewards for a job well done. Apart from programs run by each individual Mahindra company, several group-wide career and training initiatives are offered at the Mahindra Group. There is a talent management system in place that not only reviews employee performance through an Employee Personal Development Plan, but also promotes innovation and corporate leadership through Shadow Boards comprising a talent pool of young managers who develop new ideas, many of which have led to major acquisitions and alternate business ideas.

Some employees are even granted the opportunity to work on site at offices located around the globe. Employees are encouraged to work across different sectors of the company and in the process, broaden their skill sets and interests.
