Tata Motors President Ravindra Kumar discussed the four stages of a career

The Manipal-based TA Pai Management Institute (TAPMI) organised 38th TA Pai Memorial Lecture in Manipal recently. The event was conducted virtually. Ravindra Kumar GP, President and Chief Human Resource Officer of Tata Motors, delivered a lecture on ‘Scripting enduring careers,’ where he said that the measure of a successful career is not in the position or the wealth that the person accumulates; but it is the contribution that the person makes to the chosen field or community.

He also described the four stages of a career. He said the first stage of a career is learning and following process, the second stage is taking responsibility and delivering. In the third stage, one becomes very good at the job, and others gravitate towards the person to seek guidance. In the fourth stage, one begins to define new boundaries. In this stage, there is an impact on the organisation they are working for.

An award ceremony was also held at the event to recognise long service employees of the institute. Vinod Madhavan, Arun Kumar Tantry, and Parimala Hegde were felicitated with the ‘Long Service’ award for completing 10, 20, and 30 years of service, respectively.
