I joined QCI five years ago with a desire to make a meaningful contribution to the nation while also advancing my professional development. QCI's culture of growth and development has allowed me to diversify my skill set, supported by the leadership team. The emphasis on employee engagement and well-being has created a positive and nurturing work environment. I've been able to make meaningful contributions to QCI's success over the past five years, and I'm grateful to be a part of such a standout organization. Thank you, QCI, for being the wind beneath my wings, and I'm excited to continue contributing to the organization's success.
I am Kushagra Kathuria, a computer applications graduate from Allagappa University, Tamil Nadu. I have been associated with this organization for 6 years since joining as a fresher in May 2017. Currently, I serve as an Associate Manager in the GFC Star Rating Protocols Project, launched by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. As an Associate Manager, I handle several responsibilities, including team management, strategic assessment planning, stakeholder management, and data analysis.
I have successfully led several projects such as Swachh Odisha and Ranking of Jails in Haryana, as an Analyst, without any escalations or delays. My performance has earned me three promotions within the organization in the last 6 years. Our organization's working culture is highly supportive and employee-friendly, with time flexibility, a positive work environment, and dedicated managers. The organization puts a lot of emphasis on employee satisfaction and welfare.
I am proud to be associated with such a prestigious organization and will continue to work hard and give my best to the organization.
I am Ashish Gambhir, and in 2017, I joined the Quality Council of India (QCI) as a senior intern. Despite being my first organization, I quickly embraced the challenges that came my way. I progressed to middle management, thanks to the guidance and mentorship provided to me.
Over the past six years, I have undertaken diverse responsibilities that allowed me to contribute to the automation of various processes, from developing dynamic dashboards for our team and clients to completing the first drone-assisted evaluation for a project requiring water body mapping, a first for PPID. I felt proud when our former chairman, Adil Zaniualbhai, praised this initiative in front of everyone.
Being a part of QCI means the opportunity to make a positive impact on our country, from working on projects like ODF to focusing on the safety and security of cities. The innovative approach of our Young Professionals (YPs) has helped me develop an analytics approach to problem-solving.
To invest in our employee development, we must provide them with opportunities for training and development. This will allow them to enhance their skills, advance their careers, and improve retention and morale.
As a fresh graduate, I joined the Quality Council of India (QCI) as a Management Trainee in search of meaningful work and opportunities to grow. Now, over four years later, I have progressed from a Trainee to an Analyst and Project Lead, successfully leading and presenting three high-level projects. I'm currently co-leading the Open Defecation Free Certification project, a high-priority initiative at QCI. My experience has been enriching, as every day presents new challenges that I've been able to address with my diversified skill set in team management, operations, data analysis, strategic planning, and stakeholder management.
The culture at QCI is incomparable. The company proactively prioritizes employee well-being and fosters a friendly and inclusive working environment. Young professionals are empowered to progress at their own pace, with a focus on tapping into their potential to support their growth and development. QCI provides hands-on experience from senior management and leadership to support employees at all levels.
