What’s Brewing at Sankey Solutions | Meet – Meena Lokhande, Head HR
You begin your professional career with the hope that you will be successful, learning, growing, and never stop challenging yourself throughout the journey. I also had the same hope. I didn’t want my bar to rise in one direction. I rather wanted it to grow in multiple directions. I wanted to work in a culture where I am able to plan and execute tasks strategically. I wanted to grow by making new mistakes and never repeating them. I was looking forward to experimenting and trying out multiple things.
I joined Sankey Solutions as an HR Manager and I am proud to say that I am growing in a startup at an amazing pace. I practice a plethora of things here that I couldn’t practice in 10 years of my career. I was exposed to the wide curve of challenges, opportunities, exposure, learning, and knowledge. I contributed towards building the organization through a structured process. I learned to ideate and execute the plans strategically and what not!
We made relentless efforts to master the art of working in a startup. It wasn’t challenge-free. However, I knew that my efforts sowed will reap success in the coming years. After aggressive hard work and diligence, this wonderful place enabled me to make work look productive and rewarding. Today, I can proudly say that I have mastered all the HR aspects, gained self-confidence, embraced my potential, and absorbed influencing power. This is all because Sankey didn’t allow me to give up and underestimate myself. The constant mentoring from the leadership team helped me to grow like them and fight back different challenges. I reflected on myself as a better version every day. Today, I can gladly say that my child aspires to become like his mom—Relentless and never giving up!
“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it or work around it.” — Meena Lokhande, Head HR
