Women's Day Special Feature: Tanushri Nair, Associate Vice President- HR & Admin, SAGE Publications India Private Limited

Tanushri Nair Associate Vice President- HR & Admin, SAGE Publications India Private Limited Tell us about one of your superwoman moments:
I have always believed that the bigger the challenge, the bigger is the opportunity to grow. In one of my last organization when employee morale was down and ‘Communication’ was seen as a major concern, using Edward de Bono’s lateral thinking technique, we devised a strategy that helped organization-wide communication to improve and gave a platform to employees to freely express themselves. This consequently improved the employee engagement score and resulted in the organization winning ‘The Great Managers Award’. We even submitted a white paper on this to FICCI where we won the second prize under the category of ‘Innovation in Design Thinking’. All of this was time and energy consuming, needed a lot of research and had to be driven by collaboration. I was leading this mammoth exercise and simultaneously on my personal front we were shifting house …

Shikha Kulshreshtha APAC C&B Processes & Projects Lead, CNH Industrial India Pvt. Ltd Tell us about one of your superwoman moments: I’m a professional; a team leader, strategic thinker and innovator,  mom of two amazing kids, support the extended family, a soccer mom, skates mom, swimming mom, a volunteer for social activities, a mentor for young talent to mention a few. As like everyone else I chose to do all those things. No one asked me to take on all of that except, well, myself. I firmly believe, all the women live the superwoman moment every single moment they live. From Superwoman To Super Woman -Recently, I decided I bring a lifestyle shift and see the extraordinary in every day that is ordinary? Connecting more deeply with every individual I meet and the issues I address. Instead of achieving more, we focus on achieving what truly mattered? Beyond compensation to employee wellbeing in a holistic perspective. I continue to aspire to be a "super" woman and connect w…

Women's Day Special Feature: Shambhavi Solanki, VP, Head - HR, Paisabazaar.com

Shambhavi Solanki VP, Head - HR, Paisabazaar.com Tell us about one of your superwoman moments: A lot of employers follow the MBT guidelines in a letter for purposes of compliance. One of the initiatives I'm proud of is trying to understand and implement the Maternity Benefit Act in spirit. We understand that maternity is a life-changing experience for new or young mothers and we try and do our best to support women in this regard and ensure they don't miss out on work opportunities owing to maternity. While the MBT prescribes providing new mothers with a creche facility, corporates typically have one or two tie-ups in this area which may or may not be convenient options for female employees. By tying up with Work Advantage, we have opened up more than 200+ creches and play schools across NCR which women employees may choose from depending on their comfort, distance from home and convenience. Additionally, as an employer, we are welcoming of women who have taken a conscious break …

Women's Day Special Feature: Shahnaaz Anand, Assistant General Manager HR VServ Business Solutions

Shahnaaz Anand Assistant General Manager HR
VServ Business Solutions Tell us about one of your superwoman moments: I am a working professional and a mother of twins. It takes a great deal of effort, physical and mental energy to bring up two kids at once. I feel everyday demands me to act like a superwoman. So whether I had a hectic day at work, I still have to put up the physical courage to play, listen, feed and get my kids to study. It’s difficult to zero it down to a single episode or moment. There are times when one is juggling between two sick kids and an office work deadline or getting late for a meeting and your toddler decides to throw the worst tantrum ever! Well, that’s life. One of my decisions I feel extremely proud of is taking a sabbatical from work after my kids were born. I had a booming career, close to expecting a promotion and I loved my work. I decided that work could wait, but milestones wouldn’t. I decided to be a stay at home mother and dedicated 2 years of my life…
