This is a special recognition as it is different from other awards I have received in the past as a young HR leader or the 40 under 40s. It makes me stand along with the eminent personalities and the most experienced leaders in the industry that are shaping the future of global HR practices.
What drew you to Altruista Health and its GuidingCare® product?
I've been with this fantastic organization for over ten years. I was drawn to this company for its vision that blends business value to the customers and well-being of the society, making it a great place to be part of.
What are you most proud of during your tenure?
While I am proud of the many milestones I have achieved in this journey, Altruista's culture stands out for me. Our people exhibit great Altruistic values. They help each other and enjoy each other's success. We built a culture of transparency and openness, where employees feel free to express their ideas and thoughts without the fear of being judged. Even more excited is HealthEdge, our parent company shares these same cultural values.
What do you love about what you do?
We strive to empower each employee to achieve his or her dreams and full potential. The smile and satisfaction I see in a happy employee's eyes when they fulfill their professional and personal goals make me fall in love with what I do every day.
HealthEdge completed the acquisition of Altruista Health in December 2020. What are you looking forward to most with the newly combined company?
These are exciting times. I am looking forward to playing a pivotal role in integrating the organizations and simultaneously scaling the combined entity to be an employer of choice. We are now one company, with multiple products and many growth and learning opportunities.
Our Hyperbad location has several job openings, is there anything you want to share with prospective candidates?
We are one of the fast-growing health technology product organizations in Hyderabad. Our employees love us for two important reasons: continuous learning and tremendous growth opportunities.
