Organisations play a primordial role in nation’s development. The place where I live, is surrounded by small-to-medium scale enterprises.

So today I would take this opportunity to talk about Preet Tractors -the pride of my hometown, which employs nearly quarter of our working population.

What it does?

As the name suggests, Preet Tractors is a renowned name in the manufacturing of Tractors & Farm equipments. It was established in the year 1980 as a small repair workshop by Mr. Hari Singh and in the year 2005 it was rebranded into Preet Tractors.

The company now export its products to 52 countries.

Preet Tractors has about 20,000+ strong workforce across various locations in India. In my city alone, they employ nearly 5000 people, which is massive considering the size of my city.

What kind of people work there?

The people working there are both skilled and semi-skilled workers. My Uncle is working there as a Production Manager.

He told me that the largest chunk of company employees are mechanical engineers, then comes the Management team with business degrees and finally the people who are experienced in skilled trades such as Welding, Foundry, CNC etc.

How you feel about it?

I think Preet Tractors gave my hometown a global exposure. I feel so proud when people who live miles away can recognise my city. Moreover, the company presence eradicated poverty & unemployment in my region to a great extent. So I feel grateful as well!


In the end I’d just say that… Preet Tractors is our town’s greatest asset and I hope it will flourish more in the years to come.

Following are the probable set of IELTS Speaking Part-3 follow up questions for Describe a company where you live that employs a lot of people cue card:

Is it easy to find a job in India?

Honestly…, No ! It’s not easy to find a job in my country. India has a population of more than 130 crores so you can imagine the fierce competition in securing jobs.

What should the government do if there is unemployment?

Well..if there is unemployment, the first thing any government should do is provide unemployment allowance. Secondly, it’s the prerogative of government to provide free skill training courses so that people could learn and become self-employed.

Is a high salary important?

It seems to me that a good amount of salary is highly important. The inflation is rising day by day. So higher earnings can provide the necessary cushion against the aftermath of the inflation.

Should big companies donate more to charities?

Yes, definitely! Since big corporates have larger pockets they should donate more to NGO’s & charities. Moreover, generous donation is a low-hanging fruit that helps big names to attract free publicity.

Should big companies be punished more seriously if they break the law?

I am afraid I disagree with the statement! Law should be same for all no matter how big or small the company is. If any entity involves in violation of the law, it should be dealt seriously.

What are the good things about working for a big company?

Working for a big company provides global exposure. In addition, there are perks and salaries always on the higher side. Moreover, the best thing about working in a big company is that there is job security since large organisations have defined rules and structure.
