As a certified organization, Akamai Technologies India Private Limited became eligible to be considered among 'India's Best Companies to Work For 2019' – a list that features the 'Best of the Best’. The process of identifying India's Best Companies to Work For is based purely on the assessment findings and does not involve any jury or opinion based criteria.
This is a reverse mentoring program offered by Akamai. High potential women from diverse functions and roles became mentors to these senior leader mentees for a day, helping them understand what gender inclusion and exclusion in the workplace feels like.
A success profile is a model which identifies key behaviors/competencies required for success in a given role within an organization. Also referred to as competency models, these measurable behaviors represent the “how” behind achieving objectives that are agreed upon by the employee and their manager. The organization has partnered with Lominger International which provides a library of 67 competencies from which the success profiles are created. Usually consisting of 6-10 critical behaviors, the profiles are created by soliciting feedback from those in the role as well as members of the leadership team. The goal is to come to agreement on which behaviors differentiate between good performance and great performance.
Akamai is a people-centric organization and sees each other like a large family. In my last 5 months, I have had colleagues from across the globe reach out to help me, in whatever way they could and few even set weekly call to just discuss issues I may be facing. All this despite a very busy schedule.
