“Journey of a thousand miles begins with a Single Step”, however, sometimes taking that first very step seems daunting, especially, when you are venturing into a completely different phase of Life. ‘Campus to Corporate’,

But “Hero MotoCorp” the pioneer of two wheelers not only gives mobility solutions to the world but also at the same time nurtures and ensures that its employees face no barrier to outgrow their capabilities.

I still remember the very first day when I joined with 105 other trainees. We were addressed by the Leaders of Hero MotoCorp. Subsequently introducing the vision, mission, various policies and the ecosystem of whole company. Icing on the cake “Out bound Training”- Visit to Jim Corbett The objective of this activity was to develop camaraderie and foster team work. Technical training was intended to inculcate basic knowledge about methods, machines, materials and man power prevalent in the company. We also had training on self-defense, rider safety. With the open culture I never have to hesitate to ask for help

Today, after being in the Hero Family, when I sat down to write this, I could find myself smiling ear to ear.

It's a different feeling dealing with a pandemic within the safe walls of our homes, and a completely different struggle watching people close to us suffer from it. I witnessed something similar recently when my close relatives fell ill during the Corona pandemic. As helpless as I would have felt otherwise, as strong I did feel with the constant support of my seniors and warm compassion show by fellow teammates.

It felt reassuring to have our RM, Hero's Medical Team, HRBP as well as the Dealer Fraternity constantly following up and trying to help out to the best of their abilities. A simple gesture such as receiving a call from the Senior Leadership to check up on us, goes a long way.

I thank the entire Hero Family for all the help and support offered, and for standing by me during these tough times.

Kudos to our spirit!"

“As a child, watching my father come home from work on his Hero bike to becoming a part of the Hero group myself, it has been a delightful journey. I want to say that Hero is not just an organization, it is a family. The positive work culture and strong values bind us all together. 

Stepping into my first job immediately after college was not going to be easy but the entire campus to corporate program acted as an anchor which helped me and other GETs to strengthen our corporate fundamentals. Starting with the induction program, we had multiple sessions on the company’s Code of Conduct, its values and various departments which gave me an insight into the principles and basics of the company. The outbound training was set up in the idyllic landscape of Jim Corbett National Park .Subsequently, we had our technical training in Gurukul which was loaded with theoretical and practical sessions based on specific domains. I am thankful to all the people who made this possible.”

“My corporate journey started 9 months back when I was fresh out of college. Though there was one thing that helped me a lot to blend in the culture of the organisation which was the Hero's detailed induction period of almost 3 months.

Living daily with a set of young minds and going through several trainings taught me the value of team work and helped me aligning my thought process towards the corporate life. Just like that, the induction period was over and when I thought I was ready to enter my real job, it hit me the hardest.

With the regular hands- on experience, I am learning to manage and get more grasp on the job. One thing that I am sure about is that the transition has shaped me into a more responsible person, with a great beginning leap towards my journey to constant learning.”

When I came to know that I am going to be a mother, my biggest concern was how I would manage office during pregnancy and post maternity leaves. However, after going through the HR policies of Hero I was quite relaxed, reduced working hours after maternity leaves, WFH, crèche facility inside plant helped me a lot in balancing the work  along with my child.

During Covid-19 pandemic when crèche was not operational, I got the opportunity to do WFH by my manager so that I can take care of my child at home while working.

Hero MotoCorp is an Indian MNC with traditional roots, not only takes care of employees but also takes care of their family as well.

Last year I was blessed with a baby girl, I always felt that this time I needed to stay with my family because during the birth of my first child I was away. Thanks to the policy of paternity leave, that helped me to  stay with my daughter and spent more time with my family.

Often, there is lot of anxiety in the minds of new mothers joining back offices. I am fortunate to be working with HMCL, which supports new mothers to transition back to work smoothly. Benefits such as extended maternity leave for 210 days, two days’ Work from Home per week, 1.5 hours nursing break daily, daycare facility and a supporting team definitely makes it easier for returning mothers, both professionally and personally!

Within the few years that I have been an employee at Hero MotoCorp, I can wholeheartedly say that I consider myself lucky to be a part of HERO. Since having my second child, I was finding it difficult to manage my kids while being fully responsible for the demanding role at work. I am very proud to say that  HERO gave me the option of part time work employment.

I'm a mom and I feel that if it was not for HERO, it would have been very difficult for me to have the impact I have at work right now and be a happy mom at the same time!
