Empowering the engagement to be employee owned and driven has led to defining outcomes for the organization that has a long-term impact.
“Over the years we have lived our core value of 'Be Bold' by raising our ambition of being the best," said Sanket Atal, Managing Director, Intuit India. "Our culture has been a testament to that and has helped us craft the best employee experiences from building a world-class engineering center to implementing unique employee friendly practices and policies. We empower our talent to bring their whole selves to work and do the best work of their lives. I believe that's why we consistently ranked among the very best in India and around the world."
“We are constantly evolving smarter talent processes with a focus on employee experience,” said Somnath Baishya, HR Director, Intuit Global Development Centers. "We continue to invest towards new technologies as Intuit India believes that Innovation is the fundamental lever to transform lives and Data and AI will play a pivotal role in this. Everyone is encouraged to listen, observe our customers, and dedicate time to best address their challenges. We believe in the power of Culture and Leadership and coach our people leaders to unlock the untapped potential of our talent."
Intuit also has developed programs supporting diversity and inclusion. To support those with special needs and raise awareness among employees, the company conducted sign language and sensitization workshops for hiring managers, teams, and key stakeholders. In addition, the company hired interns with special needs who received training in assistive technology and product accessibility.
In India, more than 600 organisations applied to Great Place to Work® Institute to undertake the assessment this year, making it the largest Study in the space of Workplace Recognition. The Institute has an objective methodology for assessing workplace culture that has been adopted by thousands of organisations, globally.
The GPTW Institute uses a unique employee-centric framework that measures levels of trust, pride, and camaraderie prevalent in an organization through the Trust Index©, a proprietary employee survey tool developed by the Institute. All participating companies are evaluated primarily on the basis of their employees' responses to the survey, which is given 2/3rd weight of the overall score. The remaining 1/3rd of the score is derived from Culture Audit©, a tool that assesses the strength of people practices, philosophy, and values of an organization. Thus, the objective assessment of an organization's people practices and employee experiences help identify the best workplaces in the country.
