Role: Head - People & Culture. Designated as Vice President or Sr Vice President. Exceptional candidates can be at CHRO level.
Purpose of the role: Help build Wheelocity as a great place to work.
As the founding team of Wheelocity, we have laid out a clear culture code - a set of 8 core values and 5 "ways of life" that all Wheelocitians live by. While we have laid these out, I believe the success of this lies in embodying them and imbibing these values in the organization through various initiatives.
The HR-Head would be primarily expected to drive these values in the org through various employee engagement activities & SRS (Stories-Rituals-Symbols).
This is especially important given the fact that we have three types of teams (1) Strategy, Leadership & Corporate teams @ Chennai (2) Product/Engineering teams + 2 Leadership team members based @ Bangalore (3) Field team spread pan-India; and that the aspirations/expectations of these teams are widely varying.
The problem we're solving would require us to build out an all-star team of self-starters at all levels. The HR Head would play a pivotal role in attracting great talent into Wheelocity, and this is a key expectation from this role.
Given the dynamics of the industry (SCM, Agri, tech) and the startup space in general, we will need to build a robust and scientific comp & ben strategy inline with evolving industry needs. This would include monetary & non-monetary aspects and we will need expert support on this.
We have a 6-member HR team already that takes care of the ops part of HR (salary/payroll, statutory, operational part of recruitment), as well as does a great job in field recruitment (this team basically helped us ramp up to 250+ member field team in the past 12 months). While this team executes greatly, they will need leadership/guidance with respect to the direction as we grow
Base: Chennai HO. Travel to Bangalore office one week per month would be needed.
Comp: as per industry standards.Apply Here
