PDPU’s mission is to develop global professionals by providing international educational exchange to the university students and to create visibility of the university in the global educational scenario by collaborating with other reputed institutes and student exchange programs. This makes the AIESEC Chapter in PDPU all the more important. AIESEC provides the ideal platform for the students to experience the cultures, working styles and work ethic on a global scale. A unique cosmopolitan culture and a mission to develop global professionals supported by state of the art infrastructure makes AIESEC ‘The’ platform for PDPU.


EVENTS - HR Summit

Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) organized the HR Summit on 12th April, 2014 in collaboration with Aiesec, the world's largest student run organization. The summit revolved around the theme of 'Re-defining employability for Gen Y'.

With diversity and inclusion gaining grip on corporate India in recent years, the need to handle a multi-generational workforce has become important for any industry. The speakers at the event included Bhupesh Chowdary, VP, business development, Adani SEZ and Ports, Sahil Nair, president, Aiesec Ahmedabad and Shubhomoy Saha, director, School of Employability at Ethos HR among others. "It is about trusting the young work force; they are technologically very sound and efficient," said Chowdary. Some challenges were shared by Haresh Chaturvedi, zonal HR head, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages. "The importance of effectively managing a multi-generational workforce has become a challenge. Since India is going to be the youngest country by 2020, it is essential to understand the expectations of youth from the corporate front and vice versa. This will help understand both the generations and achieve a consensus to bridge the talent deficit gap," said Chaturvedi.

Aiesec also conducted a survey, in which it found; scope of growing in the organization was chosen by 95% of the total surveyed; 89% showed affiliation for a job and organization that gives them diverse roles; positive culture and energetic work environment was appreciated by 76% ; 42% said they would opt for a job in which their employers showed trust in them; 34% chose a good brand name and only 21% said they would look for salary and compensation perks in job.
