Last week five slope managers travelled from their respective slopes to our Bangalore office for special training.

The slope managers were here for 5 days in order to work in person with different teams in the Bangalore office and set objectives for the coming year as per the organizational goals.

Lakshmi Selvakumaran who’s the head of the Learning & Development team shares, “It had been a long time since the slope managers got the opportunity to come to our Bangalore office and spend time with different teams in person.

While we do have regular meetings and discussions online, sometimes this distance can result in a lot of gaps in the way they look at growing their work.

So we thought of having this training with them to improve internal communication and give all of them a direction in growing our slopes in the coming year.”

“This was our second visit to the Bangalore office and how we spent time with each team over the whole week has helped us open up to people in the office a lot more. I feel much more at ease sharing my concerns with them and even receiving feedback from them.” shares Slope Manager, Naresh Balotia

“For me, the sessions were insightful and intense every day. I got a deeper understanding of how can we practice our culture at the slopes, how it can be passed on to our trekkers through the trek leaders more effectively.” shares Slope Manager, Sanket Shitole.

“I think the training went really well. The slope managers usually do not get an opportunity to come and discuss their work-related problems in a candid way. Or share stories about their personal life.

Through these interactions, they also felt a lot more connected with people at the office.

They also learnt how different teams are progressing in their work at present and how can they collaborate with each team to take the organization forward.” adds Lakshmi.

We're happy to see the bond between the slope managers and Bangalore office teams growing stronger because of this training. It will directly impact our trek leaders & local staffs growth in the organisation. :)
