Highlights of the new corporate headquarters
The new HMIL (Hyundai Motor India Limited) headquarters has a built-up area of 28,000 metres square. The facility is built around a sustainable architecture with a 400 metre-square green wall with live plants, a 50kW solar panel integrated rooftop, and 14 EV charging units — 11 AC normal charging points and three DC fast chargers.
Employee satisfaction has been kept in mind to increase the employees’ work efficiency. To reduce work fatigue, the new headquarter will have workstations with motion desks which has hight adjustment option, rhombus desks and of course, regular desks too. Covid-19 is still around and HMIL has incorporated quite a few measures to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. To reduce common touch points 'speed gates' take over the door handle dilemma, and to reduce person-to-person spread it will also accommodate open and flexible seating for the employee. There's also a total of seven video conferencing rooms, and five closed, six open meeting rooms along with 24 soundproof 'focus rooms'.
HMIL has also kept the health and safety of its employees a priority here. Thermal scanning cameras, are put at every entry point to keep a track of any employees running fever. Moreover, lockers of employees will be sanitized by UV light. The HVAC system gets a HEPA filtration system to filter out the polluted particles in the air, to combat the poor air quality in the NCR. The new headquarter has a design in compliance with earthquake zone 5 requirements. There are also many other facilities like cafes, separate washrooms for specially-abled individuals, relaxation rooms for women, canteen and a dispensary for medical emergencies.
Additionally, Hyundai Motor India has also pitched a concept that outlined the importance of the body, mind, and soul to create a healthy working environment for its employees.
Hyundai also showcased the Ioniq 5 electric car and the Nexo along with a couple of models from Genesis, the G80 and the GV80 at the inauguration ceremony. Are they coming to India? We don’t know that yet. But what we know is Hyundai Motor India is expanding faster than ever. With 17 regional offices and 2449 customers touchpoints in place already, Hyundai is now focusing on sustainable energy and greener practices to save the planet.
