At Gujarat NRE Coke, we believe the quality of human resource directly affects the performance and profitability of its business.

In our organization, we are proud to possess one of the most technically competent and knowledgeable pool of people resources within our industry in India. This has translated into a number of achievements:

Macro: Gujarat NRE Coke has been able to grow at an aggressive pace – more than three-fold during the last five years. Gujarat NRE Coke has emerged as the largest non-captive manufacturer of metallurgical coke in India.

Micro: A consistent improvement in the process flow, improved productivity, higher capacity utilization, reduction in the production cost, and better customer servicing.

Besides, the strength of its human ability has provided a competitive edge to the company: a reduction in the capital employed per tonne of capacity – from Rs. 2660 per tonne in 1999-2000 to Rs.2260 per tonne in 2002-03. As a result of its resident knowledge pool, the company has been able to set up its green-field unit at Bhachau at a third of the cost for a similar sized project.

This sustainable progress is the result of a member-management relationship of mutual respect. The company is a fair employer, confirming with progressive human resource practices that extend well beyond statutory benchmarks. These practices comprise:

      Remunerating its employees at higher than industry standards.

      Providing safety gear to all employees.

      Providing uniforms to all employees.

      Providing subsidized meals to its employees at the plant site.

      Encouraging employee feedback on improvement in operations and also in the implementation of strategies.

      Celebrating company achievements with employees, increasing their bonding with the company.

This long standing relationship has allowed the company to grow at an exponential rate of 58.29 percent CAGR over the last four years, without a corresponding increase in the employee strength. This achievement has been without a single day’s disruption in operations due to employee issues.
