My Journey While Moving Ahead In My Career:
With over eight years of experience in Human Resources, Learning & Development and core Operations, and Bengaluru born, I majored in Hospitality Management as the dynamism of the sector excited me. My career in the hospitality segment commenced as a Corporate Leadership Trainee with Hyatt, specializing in Food & Beverage Service.
Having gained thorough exposure across the Hotel Business and Operations, and spanning all portfolio of Restaurant Management, I further took over Divisional Training, where People, Talent & Development dawned upon as my true calling. I further moved onto Hilton to handle Learning & Development, where I drove talent and culture for the hotel. I joined the Marriott family in 2017 as the Training Manager for JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu, where I forayed back to Luxury and further took on an enhanced domain of Quality & Training Manager. I have been an aspirant to expand my portfolio to core Human Resources Management, and thereby joined Courtyard by Marriott Chennai to head the People & Culture function as the Human Resources Manager for the hotel.
I have contributed to and championed several initiatives in my Human Resources tenure, spanning across Change & Quality Management, Driving Innovation & Culture, Talent Acquisition & Youth Development, Talent Management & Learning and Employer Branding. I have been a recipient of the APEC Training Leader of the Year 2017 Award with Marriott International and People Matters Are You in the List 2019 Emerging HR Leaders Award Winner.
My key priority is to prepare the talent for the future and thus look forward to enable the talent with skills and competencies that will help them be more ready for the dynamic road ahead.
The challenges have been difficult, yet enriching through my career. The industry is extremely competitive and it requires a great amount of passion and perseverance to excel and make one’s mark. I have always believed in standing up for the right cause and backing my actions and decisions with logic, empathy and rationale. The element of Innovation and Risk-Taking has always been a driving factor.
