Human Resource Development Program

The Human Resource Development Program (HRDP) was initiated in 2006 in recognition of the corporate leadership and specialist roles that HR managers are required to fulfil.

Each year HRDP recruits the best talent from premier Indian business schools and Tata companies, based on their performance, interest and capabilities, and trains them for a year with rotations through sub-functions such as recruitment and sourcing, performance management system, training and development, employee relations, community development, etc. The programme ensures accelerated long-term growth through customised as well as certified training and development during this period.

HRDP process:

  • All HRDP managers are selected by senior HR and business executives in Tata companies after undergoing a rigorous three-stage process of filtering, post which they are placed on a project-basis at Tata companies for three-month periods.
  • Managers undergo three rotational stints in core HR functions. They also undergo a community development stint, where they work with the Tata trusts on assignments in the domain of corporate sustainability for eight weeks.
  • Managers are then placed with a Tata company on a full-time basis after completion of the four rotational stints.
