The Great Place to Work Institute, India and Economic Times conducts a study every year to select the best companies to work for in India. This is the first year that Ujjivan participated in this study.
There are three factors used to evaluate a company:
1.Relationship between the employer and employee
2.Employee pride in his/her work
3.Teamwork among employees
Approximately one third of Ujjivan’s employees were randomly selected and surveyed with a 59 question form. Based on the surveys, employment satisfaction and company culture were evaluated and rankings given for different categories.
Upon completion of the surveys for all participating companies, Ujjivan ranked first in the microfinance industry !
An award ceremony was held on June 9, 2009 in Pune that was attended by members of the Ujjivan leadership team: MD/CEO Samit Ghosh, Head of HR Col. Murthy Rajan, COO-West Jolly Zachariah, and COO-East Gautam Gan. The Director of the Economic Times and the Vice President of the Times of India were in attendance to present the awards.
