Through the ‘Enterprise Leadership Programme’, the home textiles company wishes to develop its in-house leadership talent so that they are able to drive innovation, inclusive growth, profitability, and strategies aligned with emerging market disruptions


Welspun India, the home textiles company, has partnered with the Indian School of Business (ISB), to nurture its in-house talent through an Enterprise Leadership Programme under its Talent Development initiative. The programme is aimed at empowering Welspun’s leadership team with the skills to adapt to a rapidly digitising business ecosystem, while accelerating innovation, driving inclusive growth, improving profitability, and creating strategies aligned with existing and emerging market disruptions.

The year-long programme will be divided into three distinctive modules. The first module will impart online learning through virtual sessions and focus on key business aspects, such as strategic thinking and execution, reigniting growth and innovation, and driving profitable growth. The next two modules will be a part of the Residential Programme at the ISB campus and will cover digital transformation, operational excellence, customer centricity, and transformational leadership. The programme will instill a deeper sense of purpose amongst Welspun’s leaders as they manage their teams and business functions to achieve short-term and long-term organisational objectives.

Rajendra Mehta, CHRO , Welspun India, said, “Thriving in a rapidly changing business ecosystem requires business leaders with an adaptable, flexible, agile, and digital-first mindset, as well as a strategic approach revolving around transformational experiences and value-driven engagement.” This leadership programme will “help us mold our employees into leaders of tomorrow and equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to view industry disruptions as opportunities instead of obstacles.”

Speaking of the cutting-edge learning that will be imparted, V K Menon, senior director, Centre for Executive Education, ISB, said that this partnership “will integrate the latest concepts and strategies into the workings of a very professional and highly successful leadership team.”

The programme, he revealed, will “address the current imperatives of growth, innovation and profitability,” teaching leaders to lead “in disruptive times and harness the powers of digitisation.”
