A systematic and scientific approach is followed to attract bright and high potential talent. Candidates can apply for this program on Trident’s website : https://bit.ly/3HN29LC. Once applications are received on the portal, the process begins with an Online Aptitude Test and a Psychometric profiling of all applicants. It is then followed by On-Site simulation assessment activities that could include role play, case studies and in-depth personal interviews. All applicants are given a realistic job preview by extending an invitation to visit the business and plant locations and get a first-hand experience of what their future workspace would comprise of. Transparency is ensured in the entire process and is designed in a manner to eliminate any human bias.
Once selected, there is a custom onboarding and induction process. The onboarding is done in small batches to accentuate the experience for new members and extensive learning is provided on various such topics which help in expanding the understanding of business principles and processes. The focus is on smooth transition from ‘Campus to Corporate’.
To help the new members settle in their new roles, a buddy is assigned to them for successful onboarding and induction. This allows the existing member to develop their communication skills and also share their knowledge and experience.
