Preksha M joined Springworks in March, 2020 as a Human Resources Executive. Prior to Springworks, she worked as a Talent Acquisition Executive at a recruitment firm where she handled end to end recruitment processes across various industries for both technical and non-technical roles.
I joined Springworks with no hardcore HR experience other than recruitment. I had to take on a lot of different responsibilities to start with and I was able to perform well because of my peers’ support at the workplace.
Here’s a discussion with Preksha!
Tell me a little about your job role at Springworks.
My responsibilities vary from onboarding new employees, employee engagement, recruitment, and resolving employee queries related to compensation or workplace policies.
What is the one thing that you enjoy most about working in HR?
One of the things I love about HR is that it’s constantly growing and changing. From compliance with new laws and legislation to technology and employee expectations. It’s never boring and always challenging.
What changes have been made to the onboarding process during remote work?
Nothing much has changed about sending the employee details form and employee handbook to the new joiners as it was all digital before.
However, when it comes to introducing them to the team, it is all virtual now. We Introduce new joiners to their buddies online and explain all of our products and hierarchy.
Also, we provide a work-from-home setup allowance to our employees ever since we went remote.
An interesting fact is that we welcome new recruits to our team and engage them with our custom quizzes on Trivia. It helps the team to know the new joiner better.
What advice would you give someone who is seeking the same line of work?
Are there any challenges in your job? If so, how do you handle them?
With all the employee queries and work to do, it is sometimes difficult to keep a track of all the tasks on your plate. Noting down each and everything helps me in keeping up with the tasks I’m supposed to complete within a given timeline.
What is the Springworks team like?
Being from a typical recruitment background, I wanted to get involved in other HR related activities as well. Fortunately, I got this opportunity as an HR executive.
Kartik has really helped me throughout my journey at Springworks. He is a big support.
