Know more about Mrs. Nilima Kamdar, in her own words:
“I have a management degree in HR which I was judiciously using as a freelance HR professional immediately after my graduation since 1986. In 2008, I decided to make my dreams come true. I founded Nilima Jobs and started with just a laptop in hand. I just grabbed the opportunity which life had thrown at me. I decided to live my dream. From a scratch, I built up my resources, my clientele and my reputation in the market.
I single-handedly grew the business as I know it today. There were many hindrances in this journey of growth and success. Today, I have recruited employees who work for me. I am happy in my sphere as I love the job whatever I am doing.
My work is getting me recognition and people value me for the work that I do hence it gives me immense satisfaction. My career is fairly portable. With the Internet, e-mail, cell phone, and FedEx, I can work nationally, even internationally from my office—or anywhere in the world. I make a difference in peoples’ lives every day. I see it in their faces, hear it in their voices, and read it in their thank-you wishes.
Every painful or joyful life experience makes me a better consultant. I have to work very hard, and the clients expect superb results—but I get to structure my days, weeks, months, and years. I’ve never had to violate my values or personal code of ethics. I’ve never had to lie, purposely deceive or harm others, or promise things I can’t deliver. I go to bed with a clear conscience, “said Mrs. Nilima Kamdar to TCM.
“Employees built their perception about a healthy organization on the basis of its overall work culture and the value the HR initiatives add to it. If these initiatives reflect that the organization “cares”, they will surely think twice before moving on. It is hence becoming more and more important that the HR of an organization ensures that there is a proper mechanism or forum in place where an employee can freely share his grievances. The very fact that there is someone at the work place who cares and is ready to listen is red reseal in itself. Similarly employees and consultant face a major problem from employers. There should be many changes made in HR policies, certain rules should be applied and employers’ lack of discipline, this has huge setback on organization and HR consultancy, she added.
