I handle HR Analytics for APAC Zone and also manage People Processes for KHIPL. I started my inning with Kraft Heinz as Sales HR Business Partner for West India and moved on to a role in HR Analytics. For me, Kraft Heinz represents freedom to think. Kraft Heinz truly is a global company with opportunities to grow and nurture talent in a framework of solid values. Teams consist of experienced global leaders and young ambitious talent, both of whom are constantly focused on disrupting the norm.
The best thing about KraftHeinz is that it promotes the culture of Ownership and Doing what's right. I started my journey with KraftHeinz in 2006 as Executive IT Infrastructure - India, moved through various challenging roles, and currently working as Zone IT Infrastructure Operations Lead (APAC). KraftHeinz as an organization has a legacy of close to 150 years with strong brand presence across the globe. This gives an immense opportunity to an individual to learn and grow with the company. The leadership team is very engaged and provides a good platform to grow in the organization.
Working with Kraft Heinz gives one a perspective to see the world with a divergent frame. An organization that motivates their employees to go beyond their usual task and work, to embrace newer skills, develop their repository of talents and outperform themselves in multiple arenas. A place where individuality is respected and meritocracy of ideas are welcomed. An outstanding organization to work with, which propagates Diversity and Inclusion, and is committed to creating a culture where everyone is treated as equal.
