Xiaomi India Senior Director HR Varun Madan said that bringing newcomers to the company brings new ideas, high levels of energy and enthusiasm, and the average age of employees at the company is dropping a bit.
“At Xiaomi we have always made big bets on young talents. About 7-8 years ago we hired a lot of interns who have been converted to full time employees and who lead a very successful part of the business for us. Of the 305, about 50-55 percent are women we’ve hired,” Madan said. He said the workforce at the company has now risen to about 1,550, while with indirect employment the total number is more than 60,000 people.
In other youth programs, Management Training Program and Mi Launch Pad, Xiaomi also offers students from MBA institutes. Through Mi Summit, Xiaomi India claims to onboard an average of 30 MBA students annually through campus placements from the top 30 colleges in the country.
