Ghosh has moved from Aditya Birla Group, where he was the CHRO – textiles, spinning & acrylic fibre.
Saurov Ghosh has joined the National Stock Exchange of India as the group head-HR. He filled the position lying vacant since June this year after the exit of chief people officer Chandrasekhar Mukherjee.
Ghosh has spent close to 10 years at the Aditya Birla Group. First as head & executive VP-HR and training with Birla Sunlife Insurance, and then as CHRO for textiles, spinning & acrylic fibre business – a position he has held since 2014.
Talking about his move, Ghosh says, “It was great having spent almost 10 years at Aditya Birla Group, but I’ve always wanted to work with diverse industries, and NSE came as an opportunity at a very interesting time. Joining NSE at a time when the whole economy is looking into a growth trajectory, with investors showing huge interest in India, brought great prospects of doing meaningful work for further growth of the organisation and its people.”
Ghosh shares that his role at NSE is a strategic one that involves people responsibilities for its various segments. He looks at creating a culture of mutual respect and pride, with strong governance, compliance and regulations; and building a strong employer brand, not just in India but globally.
“The core focus of my people strategy would be to maximise RoI on human capital, while minimising financial risks,” adds Ghosh.
In the past, he has worked with YES Bank as the senior VP- HR, retail banking, and with HDFC Life as the chief manager-HR.
He started his career as manager-employee relations, at CEAT Tyres in 1994, and then worked with Kirloskar Pneumatic Company as a factory manager before joining HDFC Life.
Ghosh graduated in law from Pune University and pursued a master’s in personnel management and HR from JDC Bytco IMSR, Pune University. He is a recognised HR professional and has also won various industry awards for the same.
