Developing

Toastmasters Workshops

Pi Datacenters use this platform @Pi™ to develop oral and verbal communication skills as well as related soft skills in their employees. Toastmasters Workshops are held every Friday and are hosted by a designated Toastmaster. The Toastmaster is someone who is reasonably good in the art of public speaking. When the session starts, employees choose a topic that they want to talk about and then a further discussion happens around the same topic.

The most unique thing that makes Pi a great place to work, is the disruptive vision it brought into the Indian industry and more so the freedom it gives to its employees to dare and express himself/herself. It's unique and maybe a lifetime opportunity for any employee to take it with both hands and make it count and be part of the inception of an industry renaissance.

1. What can your present and potential employees be sure of from a work culture perspective in the organization? 
Change is inevitable @ Pi® – exploring and embracing new technologies is part of everyone’s role, to deliver customer excellence. This phenomenon provides an interesting and challenging perspective, to perform on a daily basis. It keeps one to learn on a continuous basis and eliminates boredom and monotony at work.

 There is a shortage of people with data center and cloud skills set in India.

Our workplace practices and programs are open, transparent and public and are designed to maintain a stable emotion towards their work, peers, and clients.
