The world of HR lost an experienced member when Sandip Mallik, chief people officer, Home Credit India, passed away recently.
It was only on June 20, 2018 that HRKatha had reported the good news of his appointment as CHRO, Home Credit India Finance. At the time he had taken over from Jindra Hachova, handling critical HR responsibilities including talent acquisition and retention, organisational change management, employer branding, hiring, learning & development, employee engagement, compensation and benefits, and rewards framework across the organisation.
As an entrepreneur, he had founded a boutique alternate asset management firm that specialised in fine art investment. He had held diverse portfolios in senior leadership positions in organisations, such as Aviva, Emerson and GE.
From introducing strength-based recruitment practices to implementing organisation development and learning programmes across several Asian markets, Mallik’s experience was rather diverse. In his almost three-decade long career, he had gained multi-cultural work experience across India, South East Asia, and Europe, in varied sectors such as energy, manufacturing and even life insurance.
He will be missed for his contribution to HR and his “transformational vision”
