For a big conglomerate like Ruparelia Group of Companies, it is essential that employers not only share the vision of the founders and investors but work towards achieving and sustaining it.
This requires that employees and management work in unison to achieve this sustainability. The point of unity is what Rajiv Ruparelia, a Ruparelia Group director, emphasized when he addressed hundred of Ruparelia Group employers during this year’s sports gala.
According to Rajiv Ruparelia working as a team yields more positive results that what you can achieve individually. “It’s worthwhile when you work as a team. What you can take from today is team work,” he said referring to the unity employees exhibited by the company teams.
He added: “You can work as an individual and succeed but when you work as a team you out-succeed every company. Work together with your management, share ideas and build on that.”
