NEW DELHI: The Hinduja Group is one of the largest diversified groups in the world with direct presence in 38 countries and activities spanning across 100 countries. Operating through investments in 11 verticals that range from banking and finance to ITeS, the Group enjoys flagship presence through leading companies, some of which are global and national icons.
In the past over 100 years, the Group has expanded and diversified its businesses with significant social and charitable contributions, under the present leadership of Chairman Srichand Hinduja, and ably supported by his brothers Gopichand, Prakash and Ashok Hinduja.
The Group employs over 2,00,000 people and has offices in many key cities of the world and all the major cities in India.
The Hinduja family has always adapted to free-market reforms, moving quickly in new markets that have opened and capitalising on new economic opportunities. As a result, the Group is now strategically positioned to contribute to old economy sectors, such as banking & finance, transport and energy, as well as the new economy sectors of technology, media and renewables.
The Group firmly believes in traditional family values – the Hindujas have all along striven to inculcate the family concept in their business enterprises while following the core philosophy of the founder of the Group. Every member of the Group is encouraged to practice the Vedic principles of work: ‘service with devotion’ and ‘willingness to see fulfillment of one’s self-interest in the active promotion of the interest of the collective’.
Mutual trust, respect, cohesion and co-operation are emphasised as key organisational guidelines. At the same time, sound modern management practices are given primacy within individual companies of the Group and also at the corporate level.
Professionals are allocated independent charge of diversified activities. There is a high premium on healthy internal competition. Executives and employees are appreciated and incentivised for performance excellence.
The Group, throughout its history, has demonstrated a strong commitment to creating better understanding between the people and the governments of the world. Building amity and co-operation between their host country and their mother country, India, has been an article of faith for the Hindujas.
