“Every job has something new to teach you.”
He started out with Varuna as a Loading Clerk, in Uttar Pradesh. Over time, his urge to learn new things took over and with his capabilities being recognised by the leadership he started maintaining records and handling data entries. Once again, he grasped all the knowledge that he could and became efficient at his work which led him to manage finances for the entire North region. Soon, Ranjit became a man who could be trusted with any task and in 2013 he was transferred to Mahipalpur as a Key Account Manager. Today, he is the Deputy Manager in the commercial department.
Ranjit notes that being part of a group that encourages working in different departments allowed him the opportunity to gain a lot of experience in the overall working of the organisation. For a person who worked at the back-end, today he adeptly handles customer interactions and helps in closing queries, audits and billings. His career growth trajectory is exceptional and makes him an example of someone who can actually be good at different jobs.
He encourages everyone to work hard and gives his example to people. “I was a small town boy in a big city with determination to pave my way in the world, and look where I am today.” He believes that if people keep taking up challenges head-on and have a resolute heart then there’s no stopping them. And if you’re lucky enough to be part of an organisation like Varuna, then you should give your best to make the most out of it.
Always challenge yourself to work outside your comfort zone
“I had little to no experience of handling customers but I took it as an opportunity to enhance my skills.” recalls Ranjit. His inexperience with customer interaction made him open to learning from his seniors and putting in extra efforts to do the job well. He learned by reading a lot on customer relations in addition to observing how his seniors and counterparts work. From understanding the needs of the customers and building a relationship to make them see both sides of the coin, it was surely a challenge but his determination to keep moving forward paved the way for success. For his outstanding service of 15 years at Varuna Group, he received the Long-term Service Award in 2021. The best part about this award was being facilitated for his long service and gaining recognition as an asset for the company as he did every job that came his way with full dedication and determination.
