At Afcons, we recognise the power of people. We scale new heights only because of the conviction and dedication of our employees. We’ve created a sustainable culture wherein every Afconian is aligned to the organisation’s vision and values.
Our dynamic leadership is committed to building transparency and creating an environment where each employee is given ample opportunities, training and incentive to develop into leaders. Backed by strong and dynamic leaders, Afcons has been able to transform from a champion EPC player to a knowledge enterprise.
The uniqueness, complexity and impact of our projects are unmatched, and this instills a deep sense of pride and satisfaction among our employees. Our projects bring us together. We ensure our employees experience a dynamic culture, and are given the best possible work environment, competitive remuneration and incentives to flourish.
Our Total Satisfaction Model provides covenants for both, the organisation and individuals. According to our Executive Vice Chairman, Mr K Subramanian, “Total Satisfaction is total and enhanced value creation for all stakeholders of Afcons”. The model focuses on:
Afcons’ unique Whole Wellness model is defined as a perfect balance of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy. Primary objective of this model is to facilitate an employee’s journey towards a stress-free, healthy and happier life. We have developed and implemented various policies and programmes revolving around whole wellness principles:
Afcons is India’s only infrastructure company to be certified as a Great Place to Work. We received the certification from the Great Place to Work Institute in January 2018, in our maiden attempt, with overwhelming scores.
Innovation: Afcons is a learning organisation, and, innovation is ingrained in our culture. Our focus is on achieving overall development through business excellence and learning initiatives. This is achieved through continual improvement of business processes, organisational drive on innovation and productivity and effective Human Resource management. The uniqueness of our projects provides us with opportunities to innovate.
Learning & Development: Training and knowledge is part of Afcons’ DNA. Every employee is encouraged to grow by learning and sharing knowledge. This has resulted in us transitioning into a Champion EPC player to a Knowledge Enterprise. Our strategy is to hone the existing crop of employees through knowledge transfer.
Collaboration: Cross-pollination of ideas is a key element of our culture. There is a healthy exchange of ideas on construction technology and management within the organisation. We employ the best talent from different parts of the world that leads to exchange of technical know-how and culture.
Whole Wellness: Our unique Whole Wellness model is defined as a perfect balance of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy. Primary objective of this model is to facilitate an employee’s journey towards a stress-free, healthy, and, happier life.
We have a culture of camaraderie and bonhomie. We consider our former employees as part of our extended family spread across the world.
We are open to hiring former employees and many have joined back at several levels.
We keep in touch with our former employees, and, keep them abreast with the latest developments in the organisation through our quarterly newsletter, Insight.
Afcons is a transnational organisation, with our projects spread in over 20 countries across Asia, Africa, and, the Middle East. Over the years, we have employed people from over 35 nationalities at our project sites.
Key Afconians are selectively deputed to overseas projects as part of strategic postings. The employees gain global experience and are provided opportunities to inculcate the learnings when they return to India. These learnings are also captured by our Knowledge Management team and the experiences are shared with other employees through classroom-at-site initiatives.
We identify high-potential star performers every year, and, they’re given opportunities to explore leadership positions in projects. They are provided adequate support for progression through guided learning and development initiatives.
