1. How do you manage work life balance

Honestly, it is easier said than done. 😊
One thing I have learnt is that planning the week in advance, helps me glide through most of the days (without pulling my hair out). Some key things that help me a lot is the great support I get from management as well as co-workers on the job and my family at home. Few tips I would love to share:

  1. I always try to prioritize both on professional and personal responsibilities. Being aware of where my presence can or cannot be compromised is critical when I’m stuck between a customer meeting and my daughter’s online zoom classes 😊
  2. Transparency: both at work and home: For instance, when I know I’m working on an important customer meeting or an upcoming webinar, my family (including my 8 year old) know that I will be stretching at work, so they help around at home with my daily chores. In the same way, when I know I have a family event, for example my daughter’s birthday, I plan to take time off, so that I can be with her on her special day.
  3. Asking for help: I ensure to ask for help when I need it. It’s ok. I accept that I am not a superhuman, no one is. So, I do not want to fool myself by assuming that I can do it all. Both at work and home, I ask(read scream 😉 ) for help when needed.

2. How is Acuvate supporting you, and how do you feel working with Acuvate

Acuvate is my second home or rather third. We women already have two homes right!
I have learnt and grown a lot during my wonderful journey with Acuvate. I am blessed to work closely with a lot of great people here. And honestly, I have made some awesome friends for life.
People here are very supportive and understanding. I have had my fair shares of ups and downs in life. More downs than I would like, but Acuvators have always been there, watching my back, giving me time to cope with my downs and then helping me get back right up and pick up where I left. Thank you all, I would not be here if it were not for your ongoing support.

3. Do you feel empowered at Acuvate?

Definitely!!!
At Acuvate, I get opportunities/challenges to learn and grow every day! Additionally, the flexibility to add my flavor in all I do, allows me to put my best foot forward. 

4. Your views about gender equality at Acuvate.?

At Acuvate, I have had access to opportunities to prove myself and make an impact on the business. We have so many women at Acuvate bringing in so much value in the Marketing team, HR team, delivery team, maintaining Microsoft partnerships and more… Acuvators are provided with ample opportunities to make a difference irrespective of their gender. That speaks volumes on gender equality at Acuvate.

1. How do you manage work life balance

How do you manage work life balance I would be lying if I said I have managed work life balance. A almost 5 year olds online schooling along with 8 month olds everyday changing routine it has been extremely tasking. But when i sit to work at the end of the day it feels like I am doing something for myself. If managing to do something for myself is called work life balance then I am still in the process of figuring it out and I do have some success.

Today , I am a proud Acuvator and more than happy to be a part of the organization for the last two years. I am glad to be associated with an organization that values Talent over Gender. The positive culture encourages employees at Acuvate to assist and to treat each other with integrity.

The Pandemic resulted in all of us working from home which in turn brought in its own share of challenges. I personally feel women are strong enough to face the challenges and overcome it.

And we must learn the management skills from a woman because she is the one who is always managing her life, her career, her wishes, her desires and striking a balance between them all. Wishing a Happy Women’s Day to all the lovely ladies at Acuvate!

Before going to bed I look at my calendar for the next working day, I plan the priorities, based on the meetings scheduled and the amount of work I have. I take breaks whenever required. Communication and connectivity are key elements for both work and personal lives. In order to maintain the balance, sometimes I need to put in extra efforts both physically and mentally, however, thanks to different technologies and apps which are making my life easier.
