<p>Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG) firm, Reliance Communications Ltd (RCom) is planning to hire 6,000 sales and marketing persons across India. As a part of it, the company is planning to start a training program called 'School of Employment (SOE)' with National Institute of Sales (NIS).
Rajan Dutta, president, corporate HR, RCom, said, "We will hire 6,000 people for sales, marketing and technology from across India during this year. We plan to ramp our business operations. The SOE program will help us to fine out skill potential candidates."
The program, which is owned by NIS and Reliance Human Resource Services (RHRS) and supported by the human resource and business verticals at RCOM, is scheduled to be rolled out with 300 candidates in pilot locations of Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Kolkata in the first tranche from the first week of July.
"The foundation behind this move is simple. Rather than empowering individuals to make decisions for themselves, RCom is going ahead and telling people exactly what to do," said Dutta.
Dutta said, "Company is preparing for expansion. Even if markets sentiments are bad, we are bullish about the growth in three generation (3G), GSM, CDMA and VAS services. To increase our workforce, we have decided to start SOE in pilot bases. We will take it in tier 2 cities also. Candidates who successfully complete the course and achieve the certification will then be finally given the option to be inducted in to the business."
