Career & Competency through Business Lenses InSource is the first Global Engineering Capability Center in WTS. Being the organization of its kind, it's important to determine and measure success and effectiveness of the organization and its employees to cater engineering and business value to the Regions. With clear set of objectives and goals the Career & Competency Framework is formed which is one of the key pillars for Insource success. Therefore, To create a competency framework for InSource which enables in holistic Talent Development viz; a. Talent Culture a. To build global technical and managerial capabilities which drives business growth for global projects b. To foster performance driven culture by co creating common language of performance and meritocracy c. To create a shared responsibility of employee, manager and organization in the career development of engineers thereby driving long term career engagement of talent d. To create avenues for talent growth anchored around technical and functional competencies b. Business Confidence a. To build business confidence and trust of the Regional entities in the engineering expertise @ InSource Competency framework is one of the foundation pillar for talent and organization practices at InSource. Viz: Role Clarity: It creates a company-wide standardized performance approach. A competency framework offers a clear and accessible outline of how all roles relate to Insource vision and success. Each employee has a reference for job duties, skills required and a clear understanding on how to perform their job successfully without the confusion of any expectations. 7 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

Performance Management & Meritocracy – Setting the baseline It establishes a performance management baseline. Because competency framework reveals expectations clearly, it sets the performance expectations and understanding clearly. Performance of employees can be compared with the the competency framework to recognize those who exceed in their position and those who have room for improvement. It can help conversations go smoothly with documentation to refer to, as well. Career Progression & Culture It promotes career progression. This career and competency framework offer 3 career paths (viz: Technical, Functional, Leadership) for employees to select and plan. The competency framework also defines clear behavioural competencies which the employees are expected to demonstrate to handle any organizational change while promoting organization culture. Scope Therefore, the following are within the scope of TCP 1. It would provide a framework to explain the intermix of Technical, Functional and Leadership path 2. It creates scalability to career in terms of learning, competency enhancement 3. It defines the expectations for higher order roles 4. It provides clarity between what a person currently processes and what are the development opportunities And the following are not in purview of the scope of TCP 1. TCP shall not automatically result into vertical mobility in career band which shall depend upon many other factors viz existence of higher role in a higher band 2. However, it shall indicate the readiness of the person for higher order role 3. It also does not lead to compensation change which shall again be dependent upon many other strategic factors. 8 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

Understanding of ROLE # What is ROLE? A role is a set of responsibilities & expectations attached to a particular job profile/position in the organization which is defined by set of competencies. To fulfil any role successfully, an individual need to perform as per the competencies defined for the role. # What is COMPETENCY? Competency is a set of skill, knowledge and attributes that allows an individual to successfully perform a task or activity for that ROLE within a specific function/job. Each ROLE has set of 4 major COMPETENCIES o Discipline Level Competencies (DLC) o Knowledge Level Competencies (KLC) o Behavioral Competencies (BC) o Leadership Competencies (LC) (for leadership roles only) # ROLE EQUATION: A ROLE comprises of the following: Role = Functional Discipline +Knowledge Level+ Career Stream (Technical+ Functional +Leadership) + Competencies + Proficiency Level (PL) Functional Discipline Knowledge Level Career Stream Competencies for Proficiency Level each Discipline FD KL CS CD PL KL – 1; KL – 2 ; Eg: KL – 3; KL – 4; Technical Career Eg: PL -1 : Basic Project KL – 5; KL – 6; Steam; Engineering; KL-7; KL – 8; Project Engineering PL – 2 : Intermediate ITO; KL – 9; Functional Career Automation Stream; Discipline: PL – 3 : Advance & Controls etc Leadership Career a.

Components of Career & Competency Model Sr. Components Description No 1. Functional Discipline These are the various Techno - Functional Stream applicable for InSource. There are 10 disciplines at present in InSource: a. Automation & Controls b. Electrical & Instrumentation c. Piping d. Project Engineering e. Mechanical Design Engineering f. Commercial Engineering (ITO) g. Oil & Gas h. Operations i. Quality j. Leadership (Business & Functional) 2. Functional Subdiscipline Each discipline have been further bifurcated into subdiscipline. Eg. Project Engineering as a discipline is bifurcated into 3 subdisciplines: 1. Process Engineering 2. Project Engineering 3. Skid Engineering 3. Career Stream A Career Stream is a group of jobs with similar types of work. We have 3 career streams at InSource. o Technical Career Stream o Leadership Career Stream o Functional Career Stream 4. Knowledge Level Career Streams are further divided into different Knowledge Levels (KL). Each knowledge level indicates the degree of accountability, complexity and influence in the role that an employee takes up. We have 9 such Knowledge Level (KL-1 to KL-9) 13 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

Sr. Components Description No Competencies are Knowledge, Skills & Ability/Attributes of an 5. Competencies individual to perform the task SUCCESSFULLY (effectively & efficiently) in the given role. Each Job profile/Role has a set of competencies associated with it. We have 4 types of competencies viz: o Knowledge Level Competencies (KL) – Skill, knowledge and experience to perform efficiently the job in hand at that particular technical knowledge level. o Discipline Level Competencies (DL) - Skill, knowledge and experience to perform efficiently the job in hand or the role for that particular discipline o Behavioural Competencies (BC) – Ability, Attributes and Behaviour required to demonstrate for that particular job profile/role. o Leadership Competencies (LC) – Ability, Attributes and Behaviour required to demonstrate for leadership roles and leadership career path. 6. Criticality Each of the above competencies are further divided based on role requirement under 3 section: o Threshold – These are the “must have” and fundamental competencies required to perform the task successfully in the respective job profile/role. o Critical – These competencies are secondary critical competencies acquired while performing the particular role or job profile. It could be on the job training, experiential learning, class room learning etc. o Differential – These competencies are “good to have” competencies, an indicator for the readiness of the individual for next role. 14 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

Sr. Components Description No Each competency is further defined with its proficiency level. It 7. Proficiency Level indicates the increasing level of complexity for that particular competencies. There are 4 proficiency levels for each competency: Beginner (PL1) – Applies basic concepts and methods but required supervision and coaching. Intermediate (PL2) – Independently develops and applies more advanced concepts and methods. Advance (PL3) – Understands and applies more complex concepts and methods. Leads/directs/manages people. Impact is larger on multiple terms and folds. Expert (PL4) – Sought out for deep specialization and expertise. The impact level could be organization wide/function wide (For details please refer to Competency Dictionary of each discipline in the excel) (For details please refer to Competency Dictionary of each discipline in the excel) 15 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK


FULCRUM OF TALENT DEVELOPMENT Career & Competency Framework will help add value at each level of the employee life cycle as defined below: Talent Acquisition: TA team are better equipped and focused to source and hire the right talent when business- critical competencies are targeted in sourcing, interviews and assessments. The talent entering the organization is better prepared to meet business needs, reducing ramp-up time. Talent Development & Career Progression: At an organizational level, development can be more effectively planned and implemented when specific behaviours and skills are clearly identified and communicated. Competency based development plan identifies the difference that exists between the actual competency of the individual with the desired level of competency required for the job profile. Assessment will be used in determining the developmental need of the individual and better career planning. The individual carries the onus of their own development. Performance Management: Performance management is a way to set clear expectations and understanding between the employees and the leaders. In competency based performance management, clear goals are set with the employees with detail and specific understanding of the requirement of the technical, business and behavioural know how By leveraging competencies, managers and employees gain a common language that spells out the HOWs in performance plans. Competencies help develop performance plans with much clarity to the employees on understanding the specific skills and behaviours they need to exhibit in achieving results. 17 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

The competency framework is an also a powerful engagement tool to have meaningful and focused discussion throughout the performance cycle between manager and employee. Succession Planning: Each job profile has its own set of competency requirement. Competencies offer clarity to senior leaders as they build talent pools to meet business needs. They provide standards against which individuals—across the organization—can be assessed. With the intelligence that comes from assessment, organizations can identify the exact talent gaps. Leaders needs to identify employees who can be groomed with proper learning and opportunities for critical roles which will enable a strong leadership and technical pipeline. 18 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

CAREER MOBILITY The Career & Competency Framework provides the flexibility for employees to pursue internal career opportunities. Career Mobility is not just about moving upwards along a hierarchical ladder, but it is also about moving around an organization for holistic development. This framework provides the employees to aspire, grow, learn, develop and move their career the way they wish. They can curve out their own career paths according to their interests and competencies. Career mobility is vertical, horizontal, intra- discipline, inter - discipline. While moving to any other role the incumbent must fulfil the “Threshold Competency” defined for that particular Role. Career Movement can also span across the following 2 scenarios: 1. Movement within Career Stream An employee can move within the disciplines while in the same career stream. Such movement is of the following kind: a. Vertical – Moving from one Knowledge Level to the next. (Moving from KL – 5 to KL – 6) b. Horizontal – Moving from one discipline to other discipline at same Knowledge Level – KL (eg: Piping Specialist in the Technical career stream moving to Project Engg Specialist – Technical career stream) 2. Movement across Career Streams An employee can also move across Career Streams. Such movements are usually of the following kinds: 27 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

a. Horizontal – Employee moving from one Career Stream to another at same Knowledge Level (eg: Engineering Specialist moving to Engineering Manager); b. Diagonal – Employee moving from one Career Stream to another at different Knowledge Level (eg. Technical Lead moving to Engineering Manager) Any Career Progression or movement will be through Competency Assessment Process ad defined earlier. The eligibility of the movement will be based on the following: A. Consistent Performance – The employee should have a consistent record of a high performance for minimum of 2/3 years depending on the criticality & complexity of the role. B. Competency Assessment – As defined earlier C. Business Requirement/Opportunity – There must be a business need for the Job Profile the employee is aspiring for or to be promoted to. 28 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK


FAQ’s: 1. Why have we adopted Career & Competency Framework? Career and Competency Framework has been designed with the objective of facilitating employee growth and providing more opportunities and flexibility in carving out their own career path. It also promotes a competency-based approach to Career & Talent Management and catering to business requirements. 2. Is this Framework only applicable to InSource? Yes, at this point it is applicable only for InSource. However, the competencies are well integrated with the need of the Regions also. 3. Does Career & Competency Framework provide the required competencies for all job profiles/Roles and can any employee skip any level in the Career and Competency Framework? The Career & Competency Framework provides the required competencies for all Job profiles at InSource. Every employee needs to demonstrate consistently the competencies, capabilities and maturity required for the future job profile. 4. Will movement of Knowledge Level have direct relation with increment & benefits? Any increment will depend on the Hay Grade Structure of the organization which is confidential. Each Knowledge Level is mapped with the Hay Grade and there are possibilities of Hay Grade remaining the same even if few Knowledge Level changes. 5. Does an employee have an option to be individual contributor and still grow in the system? Yes, in this career framework you have that option as we have provided 3 career streams. Leadership, Technical, Functional. In both Technical and Functional you can remain as individual contributor and grow accordingly. They have been equated simultaneously with the leadership level in the framework. 6. How will the employees be assessed in the Career & Competency Framework? Each employee will be given a self assessment form online to assess their levels of ease of performance against the competencies defined for each discipline. Post self assessment, the 30 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK

Manager will also assess the individual’s competencies based on consistency of the demonstrated behaviour, capabilities and competencies. Post which employees will be identified of the present Knowledge level followed by a detail career development plan with a timeline, considering employees career aspiration. 7. What will be the weightage given to an employee qualification & years of experience while considering for promotion or repositioning? Career and Competency Framework moves away from traditional method of promoting employees. It will be purely be based on performance, potential, competency and business need. 8. How will employee plan for an aspiring role? As all the Roles have defined competencies, the employee can aim in achieving the Threshold Competency of the aspiring Role and plan accordingly with the Managers support in the individual’s development plan. 9. How will an employee acquire “Threshold Competencies” for another Role in different discipline that the individual is aspiring for? The employee can discuss with the respective manager about the aspiration and plan for stretch assignment to develop Threshold competencies for another discipline. At InSource cross skilling assignments are also available as part of career development which can be another step to develop the Threshold Competencies. 10. How will the development needs be addressed for present Role post competency gap assessment? Every employees will have their own development plan thoroughly crafted post discussion with the respective Managers. These development plans will have its timeline and will be part of the employee development tool in success factor. Once a new competency is acquired, then the employee will be going through the competency assessment process. 31 CAREER & COMPETENCY HANDBOOK
