My name is Rohit Bhat and I am from Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir. Due to lack of exposure to the young minds of Kashmir valley many of us are not aware of all the opportunities that are present in the market. This lack of exposure many times restricts us to explore our talents and abilities to the fullest. I was lucky to be part of training courses here at Netsmartz that has helped me tremendously in my career.
We are currently working towards getting a Great Place to Work® Certification. Special workshops and training sessions are being held by GPW trainers to guide us through this rigorous program. We will be the only company in this region to get this certification. Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride and Camaraderie are some of essential elements that we are focusing under this program. We believe that happy employees are fuel to our success. We offer an environment that's engaging and satisfying to our employees.
Being the head of the HR department the role required to play for the GPW initiative would be really challenging and the journey is something I am looking forward to. My participation and inputs would be to create an environment where employees of the organization are not referred as employees but members of Netsmartz family and to make them feel the same way.
As an integral part of the team and company I am committed to put plans into action in context to whatever we have discussed in our GPW meeting. This will have 2 fold strategy with timelines. Short Term Strategy – 3 Months goals to start connecting the dots and gather all the information required to start enrolling the program in phases.
I believe we can all be more effective, contributing individuals if there’s a proper balance among the various demands of work, family, and life. GPW helps in achieving that goal. As a company, we can attract some of the best talent and best people to work with us, once we are GPW certified. This will help me work with incredibly smart and motivated colleagues.
My participation in GPW initiative is on the lines of giving the organization members a sense of pride to be with Netsmartz. The benefits in GPW as an initiative are very clear, for every organization to grow you need success stories and for every success story you need satisfaction across the board and a feeling of pride to be a part of the organization and its growth.
