At Netsmartz we are on a journey to be certified as a 'Great Place to Work'. Organizations with a great workplace culture have happier, more productive people and perform better. We want to make Netsmartz a place where people thrive, trust and respect each other, connect in a spirit of camaraderie and fun while taking pride in their work. Our efforts involve workshops, training, assessments and surveys. As Manipal Dhariwal, our CEO says, “ Becoming a Great Place to Work isn’t about spending more money. It’s about focusing on people and creating conditions that allow them to do their best work.” Watch this space for what's happening on the Netsmartz GPW front.
Netsmartz is proud to announce the launch of its new Netsmartz Online University as an initiative for employee Training & Development. Riding on the platform of the Netsmartz Learning Management System, Netsmartz Online University will host different training programs mapping to the different employee job roles.
We recently launched an Employee Loan Policy to help Netsmartzians when they need it the most. The objective is to ensure the happiness and financial security of our people, so they continue to thrive in our company's positive environment.
A strong sense of social responsibility and giving back to society is an integral part of the Netsmartz value system. And as a part of this, Netsmartz celebrated CSR Day on 25th May, 2017. A group of Netsmartz volunteers participated in a charity drive collecting and distributing clothes and groceries to the needy.
Our charity drive focused on the not-so-fortunate living in the slums near Mansa Devi and the Kusht Rogi Aashram in Phase 2, Industrial Area, Chandigarh.
It was good to see the high spirits and fun that the team had while doing their good deed. On an impromptu note, they hailed an ice-cream vendor passing by much to the delight of the slum kids who thoroughly enjoyed their treat!
Netsmartz initiated a legal helpline for its people. For any type of legal issue or dispute, they can seek free consultation with the in-house legal consultant Advocate Ekant Aggarwal, Legal Head at Netsmartz.
8th March being International Women's Day, we celebrated women's month in March by organizing a ton of events for our ladies. This is a small glimpse. We also started a WhatsApp group called EmpowHer with all the ladies in our offices. This will be a channel for the women to know and discuss relevant topics.
We had an enlightening session on Breast Cancer Awareness. The session was attended by all women employees at Netsmartz. The seminar was conducted by Dr. Gurpreet Singh – who is a Professor of Surgery at PGI, Chandigarh and was accompanied by Breast Cancer Trust Chandigarh members - Dr. Shashi Prabha and Dr. Kamal Walia.
To educate our female employees, we had a seminar on self-defense by Mr. B S Handa, Black Belt 6th Dan, WTF (Korea), Director – Extreme Martial Arts, Chandigarh. The session gave the ladies a lot of confidence and taught them how to be on their guard while outdoors.
A health checkup and consultation camp was organized to educate our ladies about women-specific health issues. Our speakers were Consultant Gynecologists & Obstetricians: Dr. Shilva, Dr. Monica Agarwal and Dr. Seema Wadhwa with Chief Dietitian Gunjan Pannu, all from Paras Bliss Hospital,
There was a special high tea for the ladies with Manipal Dhariwal, our CEO and all the HODs on 30th March 2017. He spoke briefly on the importance of women. A similar high tea was held at Sebiz as well - it was fun all around!
