It is aimed at creating a dedicated cadre of business leaders through multifunctional exposure and opportunities for growth in Vardhman. This scheme was started in 1979 with the aim to provide employment to the youth of Punjab. It was the time when Punjab was under the cover of terrorism. The scheme aims at hiring fresh graduates and post graduates and training them for managerial positions. As a student of MBA, it has been a learning experience to spend eight weeks of my summer training assisting in the process of Recruitment and Selection of Executive Trainees. It involved crucial tasks like inviting applications through email, post and job portals. This was followed by screening of application forms, preparing list</p> <p>of candidates selected for written test, administration of written test and preparation of data base of CVs. The data base was prepared both area-wise and qualification-wise. Analysis was also done to gauge the effectiveness of various media of advertisement and their response rates. The entire process was a mammoth task involving attention to detail and plenty scope for error. Certain contingency plans were also put in place so that the process continued without hindrance. The process gave due attention to equity and fairness considerations. At the completion of training each summer trainee gave a presentation. The main focus of presentation was to provide the suggestions and recommendations regarding the project. There were few limitations and constraints in the process. These have been adequately highlighted and suggestions for improvement have been enlisted in the report. The important areas of improvement that have been highlighted concern the drafting and placement of advertisement, format for application form, screening of applications and maintenance of database of CVs, both in the hard and soft format. The recruitment and selection process was a very comprehensive exercise providing ample opportunity for learning. It helped me learn the balance between the teachings of theory and the realities of practice. The opportunities for learning and growth provided by Vardhman are appreciable.</p> <p>B. ABOUT VARDHMAN</p> <p>HISTORY</p> <p>The industrial city of Ludhiana, located in the fertile Malwa region of</p> <p>Central Punjab is otherwise known as the "Manchester of India".

At its inception, Vardhman had an installed capacity of 14,000 spindles, today; its capacity has increased multifold to over 5.5 lacs spindles. In 1982 the Group entered the sewing thread market in the country which was a forward integration of the business. Today Vardhman Threads is the second largest producer of sewing thread in India. In 1990, it undertook yet another diversification - this time into the weaving business. The grey fabric weaving unit at Baddi (HP), commissioned in 1990 with a capacity of 20,000 meters per day, has already made its mark as a quality producer of Grey poplin, sheeting, shirting in the domestic as well as foreign market. This was followed by entry into fabric processing by setting up Auro Textiles at Baddi, which currently has a processing capacity of 1 lacs meters/day. In the year 1999 the Group has added yet another feather to its cap with the setting up of Vardhman Acrylics Ltd., Bharuch (Gujarat) which is a joint venture in Acrylic Fibre production undertaken with Marubeni and Exlan of Japan. The company also has a strong presence in the markets of Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, UK and EU in addition to the domestic market.
