Creating Leaders through the Young Executive Board (YEB)
YEB is an aspirational forum for young managers who work under guidance of top management on projects pertaining to business excellence. The members go through special development interventions like sessions with industry experts, attending top management meetings, mentoring by senior leaders etc.
GM - Supply Chain
YEB has provided me cross functional exposure. Interacting with senior leaders in the organisation during the project phase was a unique learning experience. I feel proud to be an integral part of CEAT’s success story through the YEB contributions.
Sr Manager - Materials
YEB helped me overcome the myth of performance excellence based on functional expertise only. I found that things can be learned and achieved if we work as a strong cohesive team. Mentoring is the core of YEB that gave me the edge to excel.
A two months internship opportunity to budding leaders from various B- Schools across country on live business projects.
I got to work on a challenging project.
This has been an incredible learning experience for me.
Young minds from best B-Schools across the country (IIM’s,XLRI, MDI etc.) join us and undergo a rigorous 12 month program with cross functional stints.
CEAT has proved to be much beyond my expectations.
The humility, approachability and the willingness to learn of the entire
organisation quickly catches on and takes you through a journey of immense
learning and all round development. Strong pillars of ethics, vision and systems;
coupled with extremely talented and supportive people has helped me grow not only
professionally but also personally.
From working in a state-of- the-art CEAT plant at Halol
and achieving operational efficiencies, to being in the field working with
dealers & distributors or being part
of procurement team managing spends upwards of 4000cr,
the stints have been exciting & the learning curve steep.
All this in just 6 months at CEAT. Seeing the implementation of
my recommendations gave me the real sense of achievement.
This program is for engineer graduates who go through a 12 month program with cross functional stints.
CEAT is my first organisation. The best thing is that there is
no hierarchy here, even as a GET I could approach anyone. It’s a great place to
work that motivates me everyday.
My experience here has been fantastic. The induction process has
ensured a smooth transition from our college life to a more responsible and
disciplined professional life.
My first day at work made me nervous as well as excited as
I had been waiting for the day I will begin my career. In only a year
CEAT has helped develop my skills and personality. The people here are really
warm and friendly which makes me feel comfortable.

Freedom to express
Change is imperative in today's corporate world and I have seen the cultural transformation of CEAT over the last few years into a flat and transparent organisation. Performance in CEAT is not only about achieving the goal but it's about the climb to see how far one can push themselves beyond their basic call of duty. I have always been given the freedom to express and act on my instinct and my managers have trusted my abilities resulting into a steep learning curve for me.
Mentorship and exposure
CEAT is not just one of the best places to work, it is the best place to GROW. There is a lot you can achieve with the kind of mentorship offered by the leaders of this organization.

This includes boys and girls in the age group of 18-25 years. They continuously go through regular learning interventions on soft skills and technical skills.
Working with CEAT has changed my life in many ways. People in my village respect me more now. My parents are proud of me and often express their joy at how efficiently I carryout house-hold responsibilities, just like a male member of the family. Even my school teachers praise me and portray me as an ideal girl.
It has been a great experience working with CEAT. It feels like one family. I like the working culture of the management as well as shop floor people. CEAT is a great place to work.
I feel great working with Deming company where there is an involvement of management and associates in all activities. The career opportunities for associates and the fun-filled activities make me love my work.

Working on shop floor
Mrunali S. Baingane
CEAT Ambernath Plant:
When I joined CSTL, I was one out of the six women in my team. I’d never operated any of the machinery at the plant before, but I was a quick learner. My decision to be a part of the toughest process, ie. tyre building, wasn’t met well by my family and friends. Everyone quipped that the job was only meant for boys and I didn’t stand a chance. Building a tyre which is much heavier than me is no easy task, but I’ve mastered the art. I live alone in Ambernath, am pursuing a part-time BE while working at CSTL and also funding my sister’s BE course alongside. I wish to do a Ph.D. in the near future. If most people in our country think that women aren’t capable of doing the same job as men, I’m proud to be born as one of the women who proved them wrong. - Mrunali S. Baingane, CEAT Ambernath Plant
CEAT Halol Plant
I'd never imagined that what started off as an exercise would turn out to be my biggest passion. At the age of 28, post my first child, I had gained a lot of weight. So, I started running to reduce my weight. To be honest, the runs weren’t easy. As I got better, I started winning awards and was soon participating in marathons. Every new win only motivated me to get better. At times when my runs requires me to stay away from the family, my husband stays home and takes care of my little one. My colleagues are also very helpful and give me all the support I need when out of town. I would like to tell every woman who has a dream, that it’s never too late to fulfil your desires and follow your passion.. - Reni Jinu, CEAT Halol Plant
CEAT Nagpur Plant
I come from a humble and extremely supportive family residing in Betul, Madhya Pradesh. My journey with CEAT began in November 2016 and I’ve strived to do my best ever since. This year I clocked an average of 558 tyres per shift over a span of 7 days of the Dream Run, which was much higher than the departmental average of 500 tyres. It was a feat that no other man in my department had achieved! To add to it, I’d passed the mark of 600 tyres per shift thrice in a week. It brings me great joy to see how proud my parents are. They've done a lot for me and I’m really happy that I am able to support my household too. Balancing work and a part-time BE course isn’t easy, but I’m determined to keep getting better. I believe that women can do any work which men can. We’re all equals. - Roshni Pawar, CEAT Nagpur Plant
