Srini Raj, CEO of Gemini Consulting & Services, addressed the company employees on March 3, 2023. His inspiring speech stressed the importance of project delivery excellence, creating a positive work environment, empowering people and nurturing new leaders.
Gemini moved to the new office space in Gachibowli, Hyderabad, in January 2020. However, like every other aspect of life, the COVID-19 pandemic upended the company’s office operations in March, and everyone was forced to work from home.
“I used to visit India offices regularly and hold interactive sessions with business groups and employees before the pandemic. All these changed and we were confined to our homes for a long time due to COVID-19. I am glad that the situation has become normal. I and other members of the management plan to spend more time in India now,” said Raj.
According to him, accountability, integrity, teamwork, focus on detail, empathy and willingness to learn were some values the organization would look for in people. “Technology undergoes rapid changes every day and we need to prepare ourselves to excel in what we do. We should invest in learning, development, and growth,” he said.
To excel in project delivery, the company plans to carve out a niche field for emerging leaders called Project Captains. “Identifying Project Captains is a priority. These leaders will own projects, navigate challenges, and help provide the required outcome on time.” Raj explained.
The CEO also unveiled the annual employee event for 2023 reCharge. “We rock. The coming years will be ours. We will be a force to reckon with in the technology field. That day is not far off when we will have our own million square feet office space,” he said.
Raj encouraged all employees to look at each project holistically and study every aspect of it to identify any problems or bottlenecks and come up with solutions well in advance. “I don’t look at myself as a CEO. I consider myself your big brother. You can approach me anytime. I am here to guide you,” he said.
