Unleashing a High-Performance Culture

We wish everyone a happy and healthy new year!

2022 has been a milestone year as we joined hands to become GS Lab | GAVS, and indeed, we are Stronger Together ever since. Coming together not only meant multiplication of innovations and opportunities but also stepping on to avenues with endless possibilities.

We aspire to be a force to reckon with and empower our customers in their journey to achieve their goals and business imperatives. It is our endeavor to do so by being a purposeful and value-driven organization. At GS Lab | GAVS, we ensure all our interactions, thoughts, and actions are based on the RITE (Respect, Integrity, Trust, Empathy) values.

We remain committed to foster a culture that is conducive to collaboration and innovation. In 2023, we aim to enrich the existing systems and internal processes, unleash a High-Performance culture, and build Thought Leadership.

Developing our people will remain our priority. We are concentrating our efforts toward fostering a high-performance culture and that starts with aligning everyone to our goals and empowering them to succeed. While we have always focused on effective two-way communication, we will be revamping our feedback processes to ensure we have the pulse of our diverse workforce throughout the year.

Learning and Development initiatives are going to take the front seat to drive the high-performance culture. We will emphasize on upskilling and reskilling our colleagues to help them grow and contribute to the growth of our organization. We will be bringing in best-in-class trainers and experts to fuel our growth. We’re also betting on Behavioral and Leadership development programs to be among the key drivers of change.

Members of our recently revamped Top Talent Program, the Galvanizers, will be nurtured to play a crucial role in the transformation and advancement of our organization. As part of this program, each Galvanizer will be part of a core circle headed by a member of the Leadership team, that will work towards a specific strategic initiative. As purveyors of the high-performance culture at GS Lab | GAVS, we expect them to keep challenging us all to aim for the stars.

Inclusion and diversity shall remain one of the agendas to promote safe, healthy, and conducive ecosystem. GS Lab | GAVS is also committed to be among the Prime Employers of Women. We continue to have vibrant discussions with our women community, known internally as Sheroes, to become a more diverse and inclusive workplace. We keep refining our policies and benefits to support them better each year.

Through our Role Model Series, we provide a platform for our Sheroes to interact with eminent women leaders and learn from their experiences. We also mentor our women colleagues to enable them to navigate through the complexities of work and life and keep advancing. This year we will be organizing more women-specific hiring drives as well. On-boarding the right talent, grooming them to embrace opportunities and helping them deliver will be done through associating with Global Institutions and Universities.

It is our goal to emerge as a great place to work and we recognize the significance of employee wellness to achieve that. We believe our hybrid work model, flexible timings, wellness sessions with experts, health camps, health insurance are some of the pillars of ensuring the physical well-being of our colleagues. We also have a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program, Reach Out, and an in-house psychologist, to spread awareness about mental health and offer help when needed. We realize that in a rapidly changing world each of us may experience stress and negative emotions at various points and through different triggers. We will keep sensitizing everyone to be mindful and reach out whenever they need to.

We thus begin the year with aspirations to carve a niche that becomes a benchmark in the years to come. Competencies across the board are vast and we together would strive to imbibe and harness all of those in the engagements with our stakeholders. As an organization we keep learning and unlearning to move ahead, and we invite people to join us in this exciting journey and grow along with us.
