I want to add a Finder shortcut to my Launchpad, but I am unable to do it.
Is there any way to create an alias for Finder in OS X El Capitan?

Run the following command in Terminal (it will create a symbolic link for all users):
sudo ln -s /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app /Applications
Or just for currently logged on user:
ln -s /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app ~/Applications
Finder will appear in the applications list opened with Launchpad.
