News Story from ET: Four months ago, Bombardier Transportation, the rail technology and manufacturing arm of global firm Bombardier, veered off the usual route in its six-month-long hunt for 34 young leaders in India.
The company bypassed the premier Indian Institutes of Technology and even the Indian Railway Service of Engineers cadre, and zeroed in on institutes like NIT Kurukshetra, GH Patel College of Engineering and Technology at Vallabh Vidyanagar in Gujarat and Punjab College of Engineering for its next-gen pipeline of leadership talent.

Graduates in tier-II and tier-III colleges in small towns are more willing to learn, says Ajay Singroha, HR director, Bombardier Transportation India.

“We could have recruited from the IRSE cadre or Indian Railways, but the latter is a public sector undertaking where entrepreneurial skills cannot be shaped and enhanced to determine your career,” he adds.

Bombardier Transportation’s clients and projects include the Indian Railways, Delhi Metro and Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MVRC). The focus on talent from tier-II and tier-III colleges has also been increasing at Maruti SuzukiBSE -0.91 % and Emerson.
