“It is indeed an honor to receive this award” says Moti Thadani, Head – Research & Development, SAS R&D India. “We build our culture around a strong identification with our Company Values – Accountable, Authentic, Curious, Passionate. Everybody grows up with values inculcated by parents, teachers and society. Having a consistent set of values at work, however, makes it clear how we work, how we think, how we treat each other and who we are! We cement this by sharing examples of individuals demonstrating our Values in every Town Hall meeting which underlines both what the Value means to us and that the Values guide all our actions.”
“Each and every member in SAS R&D India believes that they have a part to play in SAS being a great workplace. Our 5 Dimensions & 48 Opportunities framework unleashes collaborative genius in receiving valuable inputs from employees in making decisions that directly affect them and their work. Working on these inputs definitely provides us tangible benefits such as improvement in quality of products, improvement in environment, long term retention of employees etc.” says Soumi Alphons, Head – Human Resources, SAS R&D India.
