My journey with ITC Foods started in 2019 and there has been no looking back. I have been able to execute some extremely time-sensitive, critical projects in line with the expectations of my organisation. The unique part is that during this journey I never had to choose between my personal & my professional commitments and was able to balance both seamlessly. It’s all because of exceptionally great managerial support and a very positive peer ecosystem. ITC has ensured a that each one of us are aware and avail the employee benefits offered to us for a better work-life balance

As a working mother, it could be challenging to balance the demands of job and family. However, ITC has been incredibly supportive, providing flexible work hours and understanding my family’s needs. This support has allowed me to excel in my role while also being there for my child. I’m grateful to work in an environment that values both my professional and personal life, making it easier for me to thrive as a working mother.

The problem statement of the project was relevant to my experience, well defined and structured. This project not only added value to my experience but also helped me enhance my professional skills.
