MEIL executes infrastructure projects in more than 75% of Indian states. Some of these projects are located in tough terrains like the Himalayas (Lambadug Hydro Electric Project, Himachal Pradesh), torrential rainfall affected areas (Assam Renewal Project, Assam), arid regions (drinking water projects in Rajasthan), and other regions with socio-political tensions. In spite of such tensions, MEIL has been handling projects smoothly because of the strength of its efficient work force. The management ensures that the employees receive compensation and benefits comparable to the best in the industry.
For the year 2015-16 alone, MEIL recruited 2786 candidates, which is almost 85% increase in recruitments compared to the previous year.
For all new Graduate Engineer Trainees (GETs) and Diploma Engineer Trainees (DETs),the team gives an extensive induction orientation program. The employees also receive regular technical trainings while on the job so as to keep them up-to-date with the evolving trends in the area of project management.
The HR team has developed a PMS framework that is designed with the fundamental goal ofpromoting, improving and rewarding employee effectiveness. It is a continuous process where managers and team members work together to plan, monitor and review an employee's work objectives or goals and measure his or her overall contribution to the organizational objectives.
The orientation and induction program designed for fresh recruits (GETs) extends to almost 10 days. During these sessions, GETs are trained extensively on subjects relating to engineering concepts, project management and other tricks of the trade. The trainers are mostly senior consultants and other subject matter experts.
The field of engineering is an evolving subject with new technologies emerging on a regular basis. Companies should be up-to-date with the latest developments in the sector to take advantage of delivering better quality products with faster timelines. From this perspective, the management believes in imparting rigorous training programs to their employees with a special emphasis on industry leading practices and best practice sharing between project teams.
