Employee code 1743 will be familiar to most of the people at Compare Infobase Limited. This Employee code has been active for long 6 years. It is of a humble man who started out his career as a Runner, and is now an Executive Data Entry Operator. Here is an exploration into the journey of this man who rose to unexpected heights just because of sheer dedication and quest for knowledge…
Neeraj Kumar joined us way back in 2004 as a Runner, associated with MapsofIndia team. His job responsibility was to go to different cities and collect maps. He dutifully collected maps from Punjab, Haryana, UP, Maharastra, Karnataka, Orissa, Himachal Pradesh, Goa, West Bengal, Chandigarh, Rajasthan, reaching past the cultural and linguistic barriers.
In 2005 when we took up the Citi Bank project, Neeraj took the initiative to collect GPS points from Pune.
In between when ever he had time, he learned MS Word, MS Excel and helped us in organizing and documenting the collected maps and maintaining the information from different centers.
In 2006-07 when we started collecting local data, he took up the initiative in training the survey team about GPS and point collection. He led a team of over 100 surveyors for data collection and he also ensured that everything he collected was well documented.
Gradually Neeraj surpassed those survey days, and started showing interest in learning Drupal. He helped us in converting the existing web pages into Drupal and he also worked on developing new sites in Drupal.
When the manpower was brought down in 2009 because of Recession, Neeraj took the initiative of running the search position every month for different keywords that was a great help.
Neeraj has time and again shown curiosity to seek knowledge, master new things and improve, add value to himself and the organization. Presently he knows MS Word and Excel, Photoshop, basic HTML – although he is not an expert but he is surely an avid learner and a great team player
“My 6 years Journey with compare has been great with many up and downs. Best thing about CIL is the help, support and trust from colleagues especially my seniors and undoubtedly the knowledge sharing sessions. Compare has really helped me to broaden my horizon to achieve the milestones of the goals I had set for my life. I am thankful to Compare family for giving me such opportunities” say Neeraj.
According to MOI team, Neeraj is a great inspiration in the form of profound dedication. Not just to MOI team but the whole of CIL is inspired with Neeraj’s story. It clearly shows that at CIL the growth opportunities are innumerable if one is wiling to take the ownership of job.– Priya Chandrakanth Corporate Communications Executive
