A remarkable journey of perseverance

Sakshi Chadha had built her career in HR, spending a great deal of time in the field perfecting her craft. Working at Barclays, her work ethic was exemplary. She had won many awards and this recognition stood as a testament to her commitment to the company. At the prime of her career, Sakshi made a bold move – she joined Great Place to Study as an Assistant Manager in Business Communications. It was a field she almost knew nothing about and was worried how to take up this new challenge and if she would be able to do justice to her role in the company.

It was when she started working in the company, she realised that GPTS wasn’t a company but rather a family working towards a common goal of refining the education system across the globe. The encouraging environment in GTPS gave her the confidence and guidance to face her job with conviction. Sakshi invested herself in her new job, working on a project for Forbes India magazine. Her dedication soon came to fruition when she single-handedly managed to build a large clientele for the project.

Her journey in the company has been extraordinary, one of perseverance, grit and determination. With her industrious spirit, she has been able to achieve set targets and quite a few recognitions. She was recently awarded, as the best ‘Debutante of the year – sales’ for contributions to the GPTS family and she was all praises for her colleagues and the organisation. “When I joined GPTS I had zero experience of the profile offered to me. I would like to give credit to my colleagues who guided me and brought out the best in me. They actually showed faith in me and I am proud to prove them right” said Sakshi, while accepting her award at the ceremony.

Sakshi firmly believes in the vision and ideals of the organisation. She along with her many talented co-workers are working towards the Company’s mission of making a substantial difference in the field of a global education.
