Altudo Consultancy Services solves marketing problems with technology. The company delivers one-on-one experiences across channels driven by data, experience design and marketing technology. It works across the marketing tech ecosystem including content management system, marketing automation, customer relationship management, community, social media, cognitive computing, artificial intelligence, ecommerce and analytics.
Altudo trains its managers to become better coaches. From conducting mandatory training sessions with senior leadership that brief them about the values and work culture at induction to scheduling refresher sessions every quarter and providing its managers with the necessary guidance and learning materials, the company does it all to make them better leaders. By creating the right balance between autonomy and accountability, it makes sure that its managers can delegate tasks with correct information and guidance.
It is a prerequisite for them to spend time with their team members to help them understand projects, define roles, and make them feel valued and responsible.
To strengthen its leadership hierarchy for bigger and broader roles, the company has a leadership development programme called ‘Big Bets Programme’ for people who have consistently high value scoring over three quarters. It helps them understand the big picture aspects of business and leadership to enhance their existing abilities, acquire new skills and become better for tomorrow.
Employees at Altudo are its brand ambassadors who help narrate its story to the world. They are the strongest link between the company and its target audience. Altudo created a special Social Influencer Award category to honour and reward such employees who help maximise reach, fortify brand presence, and create value for consumers.
“One good point is that there are good skill development training programs for technical skills as well as managerial skills in Altudo. I think the management works towards personal growth and trust with your decision and key initiatives. There are many learning opportunities here. There is a culture of peer support which is very good as you never feel alone and everyone contributes to each other in personal and professional growth,” remarks and Altudo Consultancy Services employee.
“New ideas are celebrated and executed if the management feels this could add value to the company’s vision. Not just that, people are given ownership to execute the ideas and rewarded handsomely for the same,” adds another employee.
