“In the need for growth, performance and profitability, the factors which became the drivers to success were technology, machines, operations and materials. As today these factors are quite common, the key differentiator will be the human capital. People have knowledge, attitude, passion, quotient of belongingness and happiness. These different characteristics are never the same in two people and it is necessary to harness the human capital,” added Pillai.
