“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!” ~ C. JoyBell C
This is exactly each one of us felt on the very first day when we arrived at Compassites Software Solutions. Yes, it’s “Compassites”, the right direction, and we all are Navigators now! This is a journey that is going to be adventurous and with a steep learning curve for all of us!
The day started with twelve of us sitting in a conference hall, a little nervous and a lot more excited. The HR person, Himani made us play a small game where each one of us introduced ourselves prefixing our names with an adjective starting with the first letter of our names. The induction process included a warm welcome to the company and detailed information about the services provided by Compassites. We then watched numerous videos that made us familiar with vision, mission and the work culture at Compassites.
This was followed by a delicious lunch at a nearby restaurant, accompanied by Mr. Ashok Datla and Mr. Mahendra Singh. We were then taken on a guided tour of the office where we met various people from all the departments, who let us know more about their work and how the particular department fits into the scheme of business at Compassites. This gave us a good idea of how the company works and how all teams contribute to the success of the firm.
We completed our joining formalities and signing the documents, after which Mr. Rajesh Kannan, our CEO told us about the history and foundation of Compassites. He told us why Compassites is different from all other companies and also told that at Compassites there is freedom to work on things that we want to. He concluded his speech with a statement that struck a chord in all of our minds. He said, “A balanced life is not to do as we please, but to learn to do what is right.”
We had a great first day at Compassites and have already been assigned to projects. We are learning a lot from our seniors and colleagues. Looking forward to much more learning and adventures in the days to come.
