"The beginning is a place where we all have to start at some point in our lives. A new job and workplace always offer mixed feelings. On one hand, you are happy that you have got an opportunity to work in a company of your choice, and on the other, you also experience a bout of nervousness.
Starting days were a little messy, but after time I was capable of managing things. It was not only my beginning, it was the beginning for the company too. During that time, while challenges were uncountable, we still managed to get through.
With honor, I can say that I have completed 25 years in the same company, my work changed, my position changed, people changed, and employees changed, but my relationship with this workplace still persists. My dedication to my work and my honesty prove my loyalty to the company. This time span has taught me a lot of things: having control over my emotions, respecting others, enhancing speaking skills, meeting a large number of people with diverse backgrounds, and the list still goes endlessly.
I’ve always received support from my seniors and the leadership team. There are also multiple practices available for learning and serving society For example- the WOW program, SEVA program, Tree plantations, Great place to work survey, Employee survey, POSH, Value & ethics and many more.
I also cherish the many platforms and fun activities like Funky Friday, Cricket matches, Family day celebration and many more events.
When I think back, there is one incident close to my heart that I recall. During our early days when we got our first export order from Australia, we had only limited resources, and we were thinking about how to service our first order with the best quality product and packaging. Even after facing multiple challenges like loading the material in the container, we were still able to get our first export order approved.
I will always remember this because this was a new process and the first time for us, but we were able to execute it smoothly and in time. Customer Satisfaction is most important, and it is our aim to serve the best in world quality products.
I really wish that Avery Dennison touches heights of success and reaches even higher. It is like my second family, and I feel it is built with our hands while doing regular hard work."
