The company has over 1,450 employees who are actively engaged in over 125 quality projects that use different quality and statistical tools and analysis techniques using methodologies such as 5-S, Quality Circle and 6-Sigma.

It has also received a patent for its innovative, theft-proof design of a low-tension electricity distribution box. The rapidly changing business dynamics in the infrastructure sector has provided the impetus to Learning and Development (L&D) to constantly upgrade and keep up with the requirements of RInfra's respective businesses. "The biggest role of L&D in our organisation today is catering to training requirements of various businesses, particularly at project sites. In this direction, implementation and effective utilisation of the Learning Management System (WiZDOM Learning Suite) will be a major factor in making continuous learning a culture and providing our employees with the learning tools to sustain a competitive edge in all our businesses," states Lalit Jalan, CEO, RInfra.
