In the current prevailing volatility and global crisis over the last 22months, there are multiple business challenges which one would not have foreseen in the past decades.
The world has been shaken to its core a few times in the last century and this pandemic is one such event which changed the way we look at technology solution, services delivery solutions in general how we conduct most of our business. While we speak about Intelligence quotient and Emotional quotient in the past that is not enough in my view to manoeuvre this ever changing world, so I leaned onto my
Adaptability quotient which is far more reliable to make progress in the way we have been over the last 3 decades of my working life. The year 2020 and 2021 has brought the best out of me and thrived in flux created around us, as I identify myself as a leader who was able to bring out the best in my adaptive and forward looking leadership competence, even more nimble and agile "The best of my leadership came out at the time of global crisis" As a result, employee engagement ESAT (Employee Satisfaction Survey Result) -11 to + 51 points from previous survey, total improvement of 62 points from previous survey. Customer NPS increased incredibly at -44 to + 24 points from previous survey, total improvement of +68 points from previous survey. We maintain our Attrition rate at 16.5% Rolling fluctuation as of December 2021
As an entrepreneur in my head and heart I see more opportunities and solutions in rebuilding over the last two years I aspire to grow the business in next few years clearly focused on improve the bottom lines of multiple lines of business that we field in from the strategic growth standpoint. It is only after relaying and rightsizing the foundation of the cur-rent and existing business lines in terms of people, process, customer and technology keeping the customer in the centre and ahead of myself.
