Diwali Celebration at AKAL

Today (the 03rd of October 2021), we at AKAL, had the most splendid time celebrating the Festival of Lights, Diwali. This occasion is especially dear to us because it’s the first time after the pandemic that we all were able to come together as Akal family and participate in this joyous occasion.

Ice Breaker Session with New Joiners at Akal

We, at AKAL, had one of the most interactive and fun-filled icebreaker sessions as we welcomed the new members to our AKAL family. As a part of regular employee engagement activities, the session, held on 20th October this time was joined by members of different teams from different departments of the organization.

The aim of this engagement activity is (and always has been) to make the new joiners feel comfortable with each other so that they open, get accustomed to the new work environment, get motivated towards their job responsibilities, and imbibe a sense of one whole unit as Akal family.

The session commenced with everyone introducing themselves and describing their fellow teammates, who were all present in the session, in the funniest way possible. This resulted in a lot of laughter, as everyone mingled and engaged in conversations with each other.

One of our very own HR, Harleen Kaur, then hosted a quiz on Akal Infosys. It proved to be a very interactive way to inform everyone from different departments about how the company and employees operate here. The idea was to familiarize everyone with the work culture of the organization.

Interactive Quiz was followed by a team-building game where one member had to write a word (which could be from any category – place, animal, thing, fruit) on another member’s back using a pen, which he/she would then have to guess and write on the board.

The session was also joined by one of the senior members, Mr. Aditya Chibber, Corporate Head, who gave the newbies an insight into Akal’s mission and vision, he shared his own experience at Akal and encouraged everyone to work as a team towards the common goal of the organization.

Overall, it was a very productive session, especially as it helped introverts in the room to break out of their shells and become enthusiastic participants.

We, at AKAL, believe in the importance of making the workplace an employee-friendly environment. We want all our employees to feel at home and treat the company as their own.

To all the new joiners, we welcome you and hope that you have the most wonderful and mutually rewarding stay with us and that too, for a long time.

AKAL’s Campus Recruitment Drive 2021

AKAL’s Recruitment Team has just concluded its Campus Recruitment Drive for the year 2021, it was held from 20th July to 12th August 2021 and was a massive success.

Following the protocol for COVID-19, the drive was held virtually this time and was joined by over 400 students from 10 different institutes of Delhi/NCR. Participating candidates, who fought tooth and nail to fill in the vacant positions of Junior Software Developers and Junior HR Recruiters, engaged themselves with keen interest and enthusiasm. Even though it was a tough competition, selected candidates were able to clear the three stages of the selection process, which comprised of:

  • Online Test: To evaluate the IQ level of the candidates.
  • Domain Interview: To check the understanding of respective domains/fields.
  • Final HR Round: To know about personality, strengths & weaknesses of shortlisted candidates and ensuring right fit for the job vacancies.

“I think the competition was really tough because we all desperately wanted to be selected for the job profile offered. I am so happy and fortunate to have been selected for a Junior Software Developer position, that too with a prestigious organization like Akal Infosys Ltd. I was quite worried about my career path because finding employment is difficult, especially after the coronavirus outbreak. I can’t thank AKAL enough for hosting this life-changing campus recruitment drive for us. I start this new chapter of my career,” commented Ms Akriti Valvi, a participant and one of the selected candidates.

At AKAL, we believe in encouraging young talent and giving them the best career building opportunities and in order to do so, we ensure that Campus Recruitment Drives are a significant part of our overall recruitment activities.

Taking into consideration the massive shift in the job market caused by the pandemic, we do believe that our Campus Recruitment Drives will help many jobseekers find employment and motivate newly graduated students. We believe that our recruitment drives will give hope to students whose aspirations and optimisms are dimmed during these challenging times.

We thank all the students who participated in the drive with great enthusiasm. We would also like to thank all the placement coordinators of respective institutes for their efforts to ensure this drive is a success.

To all the selected candidates, welcome aboard! We hope you have a rewarding stay and successful career with us here at AKAL.

Holi Celebration at AKAL

On 26th of March, 2020, we, at AKAL, had a wonderful time celebrating the festival of Holi at our office. Practicing the protocol of social distancing and other preventive measures for COVID-19, we celebrated the festival of colours by putting our colored hand prints on chart papers as well as on each other, which was then followed by the traditional putting of holi tikka on the foreheads of each other.

The Festival of Colours “Holi” has always been one of our favourite festivities here at AKAL. We always try to do something special each year. This time understanding the importance of strict COVID-19 measures, we thought we’d do something low-key yet memorable. Hence, came the idea of putting our handprints on paper charts and on each other while strictly following the safety protocols.

The purpose of putting handprints on walls was to let every employee leave his/her mark and celebrate his/her being part of the Akal family and the amazing experience.

We are glad that even amidst the dark clouds of the coronavirus pandemic, we were able to come together and celebrate Holi in the safest way possible.

We urge you all to stay safe this Holi and follow all the precautionary measures as you celebrate this joyous occasion with your loved ones.

We, at Akal, hope that this Holi brings not only colours to your life, but also good health & prosperity to you and your loved ones during these trying times.

Women’s day Celebration at Akal Infosys

We, the women of Akal Infosys, had one of the most empowering and enlightening experiences as we celebrated International Women’s Day on 8 th of March at Akal office.

The idea was germinated by HR based on a simple yet powerful thought. All of us- the women, irrespective of our Age, economic background, ethnicity, are all in the same boat. Our challenges though different on individual level and yet very similar on a macro-level. All of us our fighting everyday for our dues in the male dominated society, all of us striving to maintain the balance between personal and professional life and ultimately neglecting ourselves in the process.

So, it was decided that this time let us go beyond chocolates, flowers, and gifts. Nothing could have been more worthy a women’s day celebration than an empowering session for the women, by the women, of the women. The HR hence arranged a pep-talk by the four most experience women (both in personal and professional life), the four pillars of HR- the heads of four critical departments of Akal on the topic.

The topic was decided “How we as women manage personal and professional lives” and a slot of one and hour was booked to the ladies of Akal. As these, ladies began to narrate their simple yet in its own self powerful journeys, what started as a Pep talk, slowly turned into a group discussion. The chord of familiarity, the sense of having gone through something similar was so strong that the other ladies and girls could not stop themselves from stepping and sharing their own experiences. We were inspired immensely by their strength, voices, drive, and passion on gender equality.

As the session proceeded, it was astonishing to know that all the four key speakers had one thing in common- their aptitude for meditation and how they owed whatever semblance of balance they had to meditation. All of them, as a matter of fact, narrated their own transformation journeys, how they were a totally different being prior to practising yoga and meditation and how it changed their life for better.

During the session, multiple other women and girls also stressed on the importance of meditation and breathing practices not just for maintaining personal and professional balance in their hectic schedule, but also for inner peace, mental and emotional strength. It gave out a very positive message, especially, to young girls, the newly married and the freshers from campus that how they must start early on this journey and find something similar, either meditation or something for solace that will help them to maintain their balance (which they would have to discover on their own, in the process of discovering themselves).

We decided to focus on a subject on the challenges faced professionally and personally for most working women in India. We shared our routines on how we manage our everyday life to make it easier for us to be working professionals, which was a wonderful idea because we got to share pointers on how we, as women, can enjoy a harmonious professional as well as personal life as a working woman.

As the event reached mid-way, we decided to change the atmosphere to that of some fun and engagement. For this, some fun activities were already planned by our four key speakers. It included, asking all the ladies present in the room two intriguing questions, to which they all give their individual perspectives. The questions were.

  • What do you want most in life?
  • What are the things you like the most about yourself?

These questions were designed to help every one of us in the conference room, including those who joined us virtually via video conferencing about how as women we all mostly want one thing- peace. Though the words, vocabulary, phrases differed, it all stopped at three things, peace, contentment, and smile.

The judges (key speakers) found it very hard to select three best answers from these but once this tedious task was done, a final question was asked to three shortlisted ladies. This question “Why are challenges important and what was the one challenge that changed your life?” was the crux of entire event.

The best answer rather the story that touched the judges most was given a small token of appreciation.

We ended the session by practicing what we had been preaching that is with a 5-minute-long meditation session, which was a cathartic experience for us all, after which we bonded over bites of our chocolates we received as gifts. The key speakers were also facilitated with small gratitude tokens for their precious time and experiences.

In the end when we all left that room, each of us was glad for this session, for each of us, had realised some key things that day. We realised that of us somewhere, have similar stories, journeys, and challenges. We realised that women should support women in this male dominated world rather than being each other’s cause of pain. And last but the most importantly we all realise that in managing everything, we should not forget the most important of all- OURSELVES. When we left the conference room each one of us was committed to pay more attention to ourselves- our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

And this was indeed a very Happy and Empowering Women’s Day for us.
