Adamas University, as a core principle lays a lot of emphasis on holistic learning. The University believes that learning should not be restricted to four walls. To bring the immersive learning within the business students at Adamas, industrial visits are incorporated as part of the curriculum. Industrial visits bridge the gap between classroom theoretical training and practical learning in a real-life environment. The aim of these industrial visits is “Education – Exposure – Experience.”
The students went through the brand briefing presentation and interacted with Plant HR head and other departmental people. They observed the end-to-end process eco system and implementation of technology in all the minute steps of the process. The visit provided the students with an opportunity to relate their studies with procurement & inventory management, process optimization and process integration, packaging , brand building & brand respect, implementation of factory laws, factory safety process, Labour management & labour union management, logistic & supply chain system and reverse supply chain system etc.
One of the most preferred organizations from employee perspective, Adani Group has a well-defined human resource policy. Their recruitment process is primarily based on 3 distinct pillars with defined weightages – 60 % on core competency, 20 % on entrepreneur attitude and 20 % on effective communication and stability. Their corporate culture is all for safety, social security, respect and dignity. And the “PRIDE” principle (Pride / Result / Integration / Dedication / Entrepreneurship) constitutes the value of the Group.
