Offering his thoughts on the sidelines of the event, Sharad Gupta, Co-Founder and COO, Team Marksmen Network, said, “Traditionally, organisations looked at delivering on their transactional promises and experience was a by-product at best. Processes and culture were not designed to deliver a certain experience. That school of thought has now turned on its head.”

“Given the diversity of the workforce and the unique needs across various industries, there is no one size fits all approach to creating elevated employee experiences. This edition of Most Preferred Workplace 2023-24  spotlighted organisations in the BFSI sector that take a multi-pronged approach to deliver tailored experiences that suit the specific needs of their people in order to foster a high-performance workforce. As expert exponents of creating cutting-edge workplaces and cultures, we salute their relentless dedication to excellence, and hope they inspire others to do likewise."
