Excerpts From The Interview
Is ABG your first organization? If no, what sets it apart from the previous organizations you have worked for?
I had worked with TCS for about 9 months. Both the organizations are equally great in their own way and it is very hard to distinguish. The most unique thing I like about ABG is that the work never gets mundane and every day in the office you get something new to learn. ABG being such a grand conglomerate offers learning opportunities that are incomparable to elsewhere. The learning does not confine to a particular domain you are working in, for me say HR, but you can also get the chance to learn about cross-functional domains like marketing and operations.
Also, you are not confined to any particular and specific responsibilities. People are given the opportunity to work in different job roles as per their interest.
What do you like most about ABG group?
The entire career path of each employee is planned in the best way possible which cannot be found in any other organization that I know of. ABG toughens you for the career that lies ahead in every possible way. A very naïve and gullible person after spending a few years with ABG gets transformed and honed to be the best.
Also, you get the chance to hold diverse job responsibilities and network with some of the best in the business.
How does ABG fulfil your professional goals and personal life?
ABG focuses extensively upon the training and development of its employees. The company facilitates its employees to attend various summits and conferences. So, the company makes sure that their employee’s competencies and skills are always up-to-date with the industry’s expectations and standards. Enhancing your learning at every step of your job is the best goal an employee can set and ABG fulfils that perfectly.
ABG lets you have the perfect work-life balance. Your duties are delegated in such an efficient manner that it never lets you compromise your health or prioritize your job over anything else. At the end of the day, you go home with a happy and satisfied mindset and it lets you spend quality personal time.
