Hyundai has reinstated 100 of its trainees that were discontinued in December due to ongoing credit crisis. According to the company sources, the demand for its small cars has revived and it intends to step up its production plans.

"Our i20 model was introduced in the Indian market in December, and has seen over thrice as much demand as we expected," said Hyundai vice president (production) Inderjith. "We have achieved our sales target for three months already.”

Hyundai had earlier cut down its production in October from three shifts to two shifts. It now intends to go back to its original production schedule to meet the rise in demand. Hyundai had also cut down its training program but now it intends to start the same again as it will need more workers in its production line.

Hyundai’s workers remain as trainees for several years until they are absorbed as permanent employees depending upon the market demand. It currently has 1700 permanent employees on its roll. However, this time it has called back 100 of its trainees that were discontinued in December but have more than two or three years of experience with the company.
