HR Initiatives

At Afcons, we recognise the power of people. We scale new heights only because of the conviction and dedication of our employees. We’ve created a sustainable culture wherein every Afconian is aligned to the organisation’s vision and values.

Our dynamic leadership is committed to building transparency and creating an environment where each employee is given ample opportunities, training and incentive to develop into leaders. Backed by strong and dynamic leaders, Afcons has been able to transform from a champion EPC player to a knowledge enterprise.

The uniqueness, complexity and impact of our projects are unmatched, and this instills a deep sense of pride and satisfaction among our employees. Our projects bring us together. We ensure our employees experience a dynamic culture, and are given the best possible work environment, competitive remuneration and incentives to flourish.

We’re a Great Place to Work

Afcons is India’s only infrastructure company to be certified as a Great Place to Work. We received the certification from the Great Place to Work Institute in January 2018, in our maiden attempt, with overwhelming scores.

  • Across parameters, Afcons has scored far better than domestic infrastructure industry benchmarks and the score is close to average scores of top-100 Indian companies
  • This demonstrates employees’ belief in management’s intent to act on feedback and attachment with the company

Grow with us

Key Afconians are selectively deputed to overseas projects as part of strategic postings. The employees gain global experience and are provided opportunities to inculcate the learnings when they return to India. These learnings are also captured by our Knowledge Management team and the experiences are shared with other employees through classroom-at-site initiatives.
We identify high-potential star performers every year, and, they’re given opportunities to explore leadership positions in projects. They are provided adequate support for progression through guided learning and development initiatives.
