Introducing Kunal Malhotra
Manager-Talent Acquisition Sourcing
by Nicole Nespeca
Compassionate leadership can take many forms—think of former South African president Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa. You’ve probably known a leader who shows great compassion for others. Here at Aon Hewitt, when I think of compassionate leadership, I think of Kunal Malhotra.
He started working for Hewitt Associates in December 2006, landing the job after just one interview. Because of his dedication and perseverance, he proved to be a quick study and was soon running talent sourcing acquisition in India.
Kunal was recently named the Manager of Talent Acquisition Sourcing for the Noida, India office, leading a team of recruiters who identify, engage, and attract candidates for Aon offices across North America and the United Kingdom.
Part of what makes Kunal such an effective recruitment leader are his mad networking skills—extensively collaborating across industries and market segments. His credentials also include a master’s degree in Human Resources and Management and certifications in AIRS, CIR, and HireVue.
Lucky for us, Kunal chose Aon because of the global progressiveness of its professional services, fostering passionate and tenacious international teams. He especially appreciates leadership’s accessibility to and interaction with their teams, and he tries to emulate those characteristics with his own team.
There’s more to Kunal than work, though. He has a beautiful, two-year-old daughter who means the world to him. He loves to travel and try new places to eat with his family.
Kunal finds that the company nurtures its colleagues in growing their careers and as individuals. He has seen this in his own career and is very grateful for his transformation from a college kid to a young mature leader in talent acquisition. He loves that Aon focuses on empowering results, which illustrates how much the organization believes in its colleagues.
Kunal really likes how friendly and supportive his team is, and they consider him to be the epitome of a kind leader. Ahem…I couldn’t agree more.
