“I had joined Enviro India seven months back. I struck a chord with my team from the very first day. They went out of their way to make me comfortable and get introduced to different departments’ personnel. Thankfully, I got close to 2-3 weeks to understand the work culture and work methodology. The flexi login allows me to decide my office travel time. In the last seven months, I have been part of two reward programs, outstation picnics and many festivals that were celebrated. It’s good to be part of a progressive company which has clear ideas for next five years”.
