Project nominated for the Excellence in education and training Steelie Award 2022

‘TalenTech’ – JSW Group’s flagship centralised Graduate Engineer Campus Programme was introduced to attract and onboard future leaders for businesses.

The primary focus of TalenTech was to create a sustainable framework to objectively assess, select and develop students and provide an equal opportunity in the selection process.

TalenTech was run on a Digital AI powered Campus Connect Platform that ensured that the entire engagement cycle for students and campuses was system driven, ran virtually and was completed within 3 months. It had the following stages:

  • Stage 1: Identified 300 campuses and reached approx. 2,50,000 students;
  • Stage 2: Online cognitive and domain knowledge testing assessment for 16,000 students via a single click of a button;
  • Stage 3: Group discussions facilitated by 250 JSW leaders for 7,000 students;
  • Stage 4: Final interviews hosted by mid-senior level internal panels for 2,300 students
  • Stage 5: Final offer was rolled out to 850+ students who were placed pan-India.

The initiative helped increase JSW’s brand awareness across India; build a robust talent pipeline with strong technical competencies; improved the diversity ratio of businesses; induced positive engagement amongst students; ensured business continuity and
improved performance through the constant availability of young talent.

The students were on-boarded from across locations through a 3-day virtual orientation session where they were welcomed by JSW Leaders who spoke on the vision, mission and values of the organisation. Their fellow engineers took them through the group overview.

As the next step, students will go through a structured 100 days location-specific induction programme.
