“Talent, Passion and Organizational Support provide the blueprint for Success”—Mr Saran Prasad, MD, Accenture
There was much buzz and excitement surrounding the visit of Campus Mentor Mr. Saran Prasad- MD, Accenture. He was there to engage in an inspirational talk session with all Accenture selected students who were much in awe of his towering personality. Accompanied by Mr Sandeep Narula from the Talent Acquisition team, who is the single point of contact between Accenture and Manav Rachna, Mr. Saran Prasad imbued the students with a fresh surge of confidence!
Congratulating them on their selection at Accenture, he shared a few nuggets of wisdom that would hold them in good stead. Mr Prasad emphasised upon the fact that while many students would view theirAccenture selection as a stepping stone for building a rewarding career, it would be best not to treat it as merely a job.
He gave an insight about the quality of work and the prevalent work culture within the organization, explaining that the sheer size of the organization and diversity of the projects gives each employee at Accenture a fair chance to shape his/her own career– even switching the nature of job within the organisation to enhance their prospects.
It was made abundantly clear that the employees who work upon their own capability and are found contributing in the growth of the organization, will find it an extremely rewarding experience.
Mr Saran explained, how the concept of T-O-P (Talent-Organization-Passion) plays a vital role in the sustained growth of an individual. One has to find his/her own passion as it is something, which has to be discovered from within. To support that passion, one needs a suitable talent which can be acquired. What’s more, when there is a combination of matching Talent and Passion, there is a need to provide the right kind of opportunity in which the Organization can play a pivotal role. It is at this tri-junction that Accenture is found to be enormously diverse in recognizing that unique combination of Passion and Talent.
The Team further clarified their doubts in a frank chat and in that
Mr. Saran Prasad set them perfectly at ease.
