Rohan belongs to the city of Vadodara, Gujarat. He did his Bachelor’s in Commerce specializing in Human Resource Management. He moved on to achieve a PGPM in HR from IMT Ghaziabad. He has been a part of Springworks for more than 13 months and loves every bit of it!

What do you do as an HR Executive at Springworks?

I take care of the people function at Springworks, anything and everything people-oriented is my job. I am the problem solver of any kinds of employee-related issues that come up on a day-to-day basis. Apart from this, I am also responsible for Onboarding, Performance Appraisals, and other administrative tasks of human resources. 

What attracted you to the Human Resource domain?

I have always been a people person even in an informal environment, this is what pushed me to take up being a people person in my professional career as well. My effective communication and attention to detail are what led me to become an efficient HR personnel in my career.

What is your favorite part of being an HR Executive?

My favorite part would be everything! Being able to be a part of every employee’s life in the form of a helper, or bearer of good or bad news is what keeps me going. I have always had an extrovert personality that helps me in performing my job role effectively. Along with this, challenging the status quo and how to make HR more fun is what I love about my job.

How has your learning curve improved over the last 1 year of being at Springworks?

Before I started my work with Springworks, I was working in recruitment for more than 5 months. Being able to pick up human resource admin functions after my stint in recruitment was a great stepping stone for me. I started as an intern mainly working on podcasts and now I am currently handling all major areas of Human resource management at Springworks, ranging from onboarding to exit interviews. 

What kind of advice would you give to folks who are looking to pursue a career in Human Resource Management?

Anyone who is looking to pursue a career in HR should learn the basics of it. Being a part of the recruitment team would give one a very detailed insight into every kind of job role that tends to exist in the market. This will help you understand the functionalities of HR in detail and will create a very strong foundation for building up a career in Human Resource Management.

Which is your favorite product amongst our two apps, Trivia & EngageWith?

I would say EngageWith is my favorite amongst the two, as an HR person I understand the importance of recognizing employees and how it helps to motivate them to perform better. If we can automate the entire process of recognizing and also give employees the power of recognising each other, it just helps in building a great culture. 

Sneak-peek into your life outside Springworks!

My life outside of work majorly revolves around my family and catering to their day-to-day needs. I love to travel and tend to do so whenever I get the chance to. I recently visited the beautiful town of Coonoor along with my work colleagues and had the best time ever!
