Kindly brief us about your professional journey and what kind of ethics, principles and manner of working you observe while managing the business operations?
The 25 years of my professional journey have been a roller coaster ride. I began my career soon after my graduation and since then, one over-riding principle that I followed in my life was to keep on learning endlessly. I have extensive experience working in small setups to large corporates in wide-ranging areas such as Human Resources, Finance and Admin.
I formulated policies which helped the organizations I worked for create a positive work environment and a culture which imbibed equal opportunities for all. The results were evident through employee loyalty and higher productivity.
