My life at Capgemini

Capgemini India Market Unit (IMU) has molded me into a driven, self-reliant, and independent woman. It has challenged me professionally and has motivated me to strive harder to achieve my goals. I joined Capgemini as a fresher in the industry and I am proud today to be playing a larger managerial role, overseeing a number of financial practices. It has been a wonderful journey so far and I look forward to taking on more challenges.

My usual work day

I start my day by checking my emails and quickly prioritizing the tasks for the day while sipping a warm cup of coffee. The rest of my day involves communicating with key stakeholders, which means several phone calls, follow-ups, meetings, and overseeing a number of practices for the unit. When I am overwhelmed with work, I take a short chai break and treat myself to a vada pav.

Places I have been

An avid traveler and an adventure seeker, I like to travel solo. During my visit to North India, I explored the high passes and shimmering lakes of Leh and Ladakh and experienced the thrill of bungee jumping and river rafting at Rishikesh. I was captivated by the oak-fringed slopes and dense forests at Auli, the scenic beauty of Mussoorie, and the sanctity of the Golden temple at Amritsar. My fondest traveling memory is of passing by the Indo-China border, which is otherwise a restricted area for civilians, but my group was lucky to get access due to a landslide on the usual route. It is my dream to travel across all the states in India before embarking on foreign expeditions.

My personal life

I am a trained classical Bharatanatyam dancer who has been out of practice for almost a decade. I love to dance and do so whenever I can. I love to go street shopping and use my bargaining skills to get the best deals. On weekends, I spend time with my friends and family, attend live shows or just relax at home. Also, being an avid reader, lately I have been reading books on human behavior and relationships.

Projects I’m proud of

As a Project Controller for finance operations, I am particularly proud of the following two projects, on which I worked closely with the leadership team. Lean Cash initiative: Launched in April 2013, I was appointed as the key finance SPOC for ensuring the participation of stakeholders and tracking the overall performance of the implementation. The project was instrumental in achieving improved efficiency of our cash collection practice and was awarded for cash collection and DOR performance in the following years.IGATE integration: Our team was successful in completing the smooth integration with IGATE, thereby meeting the January 2017 deadline and achieving a high compliance rate for time and expense closure.

Work-life balance

Initially, I used to find it difficult to maintain a proper work-life balance and still find myself struggling at times.However, with time, I have realized the importance of the saying ‘sound mind in a sound body’. Gradually, I turned things around, making it a point to go for a run every morning, which has become an essential part of my routine to maintain my psychological and physical well-being. Oftentimes, I disconnect from all digital mediums to just enjoy the real moments in life. Striking a healthy balance is still an ongoing pursuit, but inculcating healthy habits and improving my resilience ability is a conscious choice.

Role of women in the workforce

The initiatives taken by organizations to improve the representation of women in the workplace have definitely been uplifting. Today, women have transcended the glass ceiling of industries dominated by men. Now both genders are trying to complement and benefit each another, be it at the workplace or home, which is a good sign.
