I was promoted to become a Global HR Business Partner over 2 years ago. It’s what I’d always aspired for and it’s been a great journey.
Some people never fail to amaze you and it’s inspiring to see how teams can stick out for each other in the face of adversity. The best example of this I can share is back in December 2015 when Chennai suffered the worst flooding for decades. Chennaites will never forget this time when we were reeling from the havoc created across the city. Lives were lost, transport across the city was shut down and a disaster was officially declared by the government.
Just before the floods hit, I had gone to visit my mother along with my sister and three-year-old daughter outside the city limits. We had no idea how bad the floods were about to get. We ended up stranded on the first floor of a building, waiting for a boat to rescue us.
