It’s a joyous moment for the Aditya Birla Group as four leaders are chosen winners in The Economic Times Young Leaders programme
Corporate executives aged 26-32 were eligible for participation in the Economic Times (ET) Young Leaders programme.
The sixth edition of the programme saw nearly 23,000 working professionals competing for a spot in the coveted ranking of India’s future leaders. This included significant corporate participation with 241 companies nominating more than 2,800 candidates. The four-part assessment was conducted in partnership with SHL, global leader in talent innovation. Candidates were evaluated by a panel of 10 CEOs.
Phase one consisted of an online personality-based evaluation of the candidates. In phase two, shortlisted candidates were put through a series of tests: an analytical test, a verbal ability test and a personality assessment. The online assessment was followed by an on-ground assessment, for which candidates were evaluated on group tasks, role plays and the like. Participants who qualified proceeded to the final stage of the programme.
Only 95 men and women – the best of the best – made it to phase four where each was interviewed by one among ET’s panel of 10 top CEOs. The final Young Leaders list of 46 was picked by the CEO panel.
The high profile jury looked for diverse attributes including ambition, grit and humility in the candidates to choose the best-of-the-best.
The winners from Aditya Birla Group and Group companies are:
