Our people, our approach


Performance and Leadership

In India, and all around the world, the backbone of an effective workforce that supports business needs is a strong performance and leadership management process. Our leadership model requires that leaders demonstrate their skills and abilities in two areas: leading business and leading people. Our global, standardized performance management program that facilitates the reward and growth of our staff is also an important tool used within LDC India.

Talent Management

One of the challenges of a successful organization is to effectively attract and retain the best people. Even as we seek external candidates for positions within the country, we also aim to motivate and reward high performing employees beyond mere compensation, through internal promotion within their professional areas, lateral growth and international mobility.

An effective talent management program speeds up value creation in key positions. It is the process and mindset by which we identify high potential employees and invest in their accelerated development, with the ultimate goal of retaining them and positively impacting business results.

Learning and Development

LDC India promotes ongoing learning - both formal and informal - throughout an employee’s career. We also benefit from global best practices and corporate programs managed by our HR function in collaboration with business platforms.
