Yeshasvini Ramaswamy, CEO, of Great Place to Work India, said “At the Great Place To Work For All™ Summit 2023, we collaborate with leaders from across the globe to share their insights and best practices on building and sustaining High-Trust, High-Performance Culture™. This year, our focus is on harnessing the power of Agility, Innovation, and Maximizing Human Potential (AIM) at the workplace by encouraging the best workplaces to share their success stories with India Inc.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a significant and powerful catalyst for organizations to re-evaluate their priorities and recognize the crucial role their employees play in driving success. As India aspires to become a more robust global economy in the next decade, workplace culture must remain centered around fairness and equal treatment for all employees. Organizations are microcosms of our multi-layered society, and we must promote dialogue around responsible leadership.
To prepare for the next decade, a timeline that is wrought with the global pandemic, wars, and a potential economic recession, organizations must be encouraged to embrace change and be supported in their journey to adapt to rapidly changing work environments. With hybrid models here to stay and business competitiveness increasing, the time is ripe for leaders to come together to dialogue on what could be our potential ‘next best practices’ and what can the world learn from India. At Great Place To Work India, we strongly believe that by fostering a culture of best practices that promotes Agility, Innovation, and Maximizing Human Potential, organizations can build a strong foundation toward a more secure and predictable future.
So, join us as we explore and deliberate on some of the latest trends and strategies to drive success and create a Great Place To Work For All.”
In the current environment, almost all workplaces in India are working towards a common aim: the $5 trillion Indian economy. The pandemic, to a large extent, prompted organizations to introspect and realize the true value of their biggest assets – their people. As India transitions from a ‘developing’ to a ‘developed’ country, For All leaders will be those who define agile workplaces, built on a culture of innovation, and maximized human potential.
