New Delhi: Gajendra Chandel, president and chief human resource officer (CHRO) of Tata Motors, has resigned. “Gajendra Chandel has decided to move on from his role at Tata Motors … to pursue his entrepreneurial interests,” a Tata Motors spokesperson said an email response to ET’s queries. He will continue to carry out his responsibilities till a successor is announced, the spokesperson said.
Since 2014, Chandel worked as a member of the executive committee and CHRO at Tata Motors. Before that he was president of human resources at Tata AutoComp Systems. He worked at Siemens from 1992 to 2005 as director and general manager and group head of shared services.
“I had been contemplating to start a new beginning and a few weeks ago I finally put in my papers,” said Chandel. Chandel had played a key role in defining a new organisation structure at Tata Motors, simplifying a 14-layer structure to five last fiscal year.

He also took the decision to implement a no-designation system. It , however, did not yield positive response and the company had to bring back designations a few weeks later.
Under his tenure, several voluntary retirement schemes were introduced to shed extra flab at the company. It also got rid of 1,500 managerial staff under his reign. These moves had played a key part in cutting cost by Rs 400 crore.
