Underlining its position as a great place to work, Impetus Infotech (India) Pvt. Ltd., a big data thought leader and a software services & solutions company, was recently ranked 14th in the list of ‘Dream Companies to Work for in India 2016’ at the World HRD Congress. Impetus emerged as one of the leaders in this category which saw over 460 participating companies across multiple industries. This year Impetus was also recognized under two individual categories - Managing Health at Work and Institution Building. The company’s position as a leader in HRD was also bolstered by its VP – Operations & Human Empowerment Group, Sanjeev Agrawal, being named ‘The Most Influential HR Leader’ at the event which took place on February 16 in Mumbai.
The World HRD Congress Awards recognise the efforts of organisations that have demonstrated excellence through their innovative programs, showing clear and measurable business results to drive organizational excellence. All nominations go through a rigorous six step process from receiving the entries to the final rankings. Entries pass through a thorough screening process after which they go to the Academic Council for their review. Once that is done, the entries are further evaluated by a Professional Council. As a fifth step, all shortlisted companies are requested to send their representatives for the Jury round and make a live presentation. After a detailed discussion and analysis, the final rankings are pronounced.
The ‘Most Influential HR Leader in India’ award was decided by the jury after evaluating the credentials and achievements of individuals in the field of HR and the impact that that they have made in their companies, and was only conferred to 100 HR professionals in India. This achievement marked the first time an individual award was won in the HR space by Impetus.
Speaking on the twin achievements, Sanjeev Agrawal, VP – Operations & Human Empowerment Group, said, “I am extremely happy and proud to be a part of the setup at Impetus. It really is heartening to see that our efforts in keeping the employees enthused and committed are being recognised on such a major platform. Being ranked 14th as a ‘Dream Place to Work’ ahead of several bigger competitors motivates us to do much more for our employees and their experience of working here. Having consistently figured amongst the leaders in the field of HRD; we aim to keep raising the bar with more innovative and employee-centric measures in the future as well.”
“I am overwhelmed by the recognition bestowed on me personally. Being honored at an individual level is doubly inspiring and motivates me further to maintain the healthy and inspiring work culture Impetus is known for,” he added.
This is not the first time that Impetus is being recognised for their employee-friendly work culture.
