Our People – Our Biggest Strength
People constitute the nucleus of Centrum’s business strategy and the Company is constantly working towards ensuring the best human resource (HR) policies and practices. The HR team is constantly making an effort to assess the effects of the continuously changing Business environment on hiring trends and building an adaptable workforce that thrives in times of change. The thrust is on hiring, nurturing and retaining the best talent available in the country, which Centrum has successfully managed through focused attention on right fitment. A stringent screening process ensures that Centrum has a highly qualified talent pool of professionals, who will make a positive impact on the Business. Employee engagement at Centrum does not end with hiring an employee. In fact it begins with the employee’s appointment and continues through his whole career span in the organization. The Company has a robust system for employee development and enhancement, which the top leadership leverages, on a regular basis to ensure growth from one level to the next as the individual progresses through Centrum’s hierarchy. A high percentage of leaders are promoted from within, giving them an edge over others as they have familiarity with the company culture and understanding of the team’s needs. The right training inputs are also provided to these employees to become better leaders. The Company has performance appraisal systems that are benchmarked with the best in the industry, offering, on the one hand a high level of transparency, and on the other, providing adequate scope for continuous self-improvement through a streamlined counselling process. The consistent efforts in this direction have also been recognized externally.

Senior Vice President – Equity Capital Markets
I am glad to share that my journey so far at Centrum has been professionally enriching and on the personal front a rather satisfying one.
I firmly believe Centrum is a unique platform for enterprising Investment Banking professionals who believe in applying their financial acumen and thought leadership to offer innovative financial solutions to clients.
The management believes in high degree of delegation which can be potentially leveraged to meet one's professional growth aspirations and adding genuine value to clients.
MD – CIAL
When I joined I started off doing what I had done all my professional life, building client relationships and servicing them to the best of my abilities. Eventually I molded myself to being a very strong sales support as well as taking the forefront in most product, market related conversations with clients. So from joining Centrum as an AVP – Business Development, I now handle a full -fledged Relationship Management role as Vice President.
I think this is not a unique story at Centrum. It is more of a norm. The organisation has been built around providing people a platform to think big, to think out of the box and to go and achieve success from sheer hard work and diligence.
