What kind of experience did you have before Elevar?

I have worked in ESG (Environmental, Social and Governanace) research at Evalueserve Pvt Ltd before Elevar. Here, I advised clients in making their operations green. Also, I was part of the Economic Risk Capital team at Credit Suisse where I helped manage the capital requirements for the bank’s capital markets and private banking verticals.

How is Elevar different to the jobs you’ve done before?

Elevar provides authority and freedom towards the job and expects equal responsibility in performing at the job. I’ve never seen that combination anywhere else yet.

Tell us one great thing you’ve learnt from your colleagues at Elevar?

I’ve learnt that you can’t do everything alone. It takes more than one person to achieve something substantial. So, you need to have someone with you at work who continuously pushes you to perform better and cares for you personally at the same time.
