Alsana Rang Theater Society - Director
I have been a part of the AU family since 2002 and part of the team since 2017 working with the leaders of this institution, learning the thoughtfulness behind its operations.! Each day starts with a positive thought to do good and ends with an overwhelming peaceful feeling. AU Foundation’s well thought & unique projects make sure that its resources & efforts serve the people in the most optimum way. It has helped me find a way to enrich the lives of others & in the process enrich my own.
Being one of the first employees of the team, I have had the privilege to drive the change that I had always dreamt of. New ideas are given way & appreciated, breaking away from the set norms of doing CSR. I experienced the first-hand rigorous efforts to build something new & something that has not been done before. I am learning so much every day, it overwhelms me and at the same time warms my heart.
Sports For Development
In all of my experience working in the social development sector, AU Foundation is my first time working for a Bank’s CSR. This has been the biggest learning opportunity for me and has allowed me to fulfill my life-long mission to serve the nation at large. My work within the AU Foundation’s Financial & Digital Literacy Project, helps me develop the unbanked masses & connect them to the mainstream financial infrastructure, which in turn helps the nation’s economy. With the help of unique learning mechanisms, we are able to reach various strata of people & serve them in a way that is most efficient.
Financial & Digital Literacy
Prior to joining any organization, I would look for two important aspects in any organization i.e. vision of the organization and working environment to achieve that vision. At AU Foundation, each day presents a new challenge and a learning opportunity. I am constantly experiencing personal and professional growth which is very satisfying and rewarding. Also, I feel like I work for the organization that truly cares. Along with society at large, It cares about the development of its employees and nurtures them to be the best they can be.
Dr. Garima Sharma
AU Skills Academy
Hailing from the development sector & having worked on the on-ground projects, I wasn’t sure of my decision to work in a bank’s CSR. It was only after I started working at the AU Foundation, that I realized how different its working is. AU Foundation has provided me with the chance to have full ownership of my projects, I have found right mentorship from my seniors & every single day I learn something valuable. The opportunities at AU Foundation are immense & I am on a mission to make each day worth it.
I’ve been a part of the AU Family since 2010, working on a range of different profiles in on ground operations & execution. Being a part of the support team, it allows me to work on multiple projects of AU Foundation - from Financial literacy Camps to Livelihood Enhancement Project Visits on various ad-hoc projects. Working at AU Foundation has provided me a second chance, to reinvent & redefine myself.
You should be your own yardstick for progress. Am I better than I was yesterday? This is the only question worth asking. If you go to bed at night a better self-experimenter than the one who woke up that morning, you have succeeded. Your worth should have nothing to do with how your progress stacks up relative to another; only how it stacks up against the person you were yesterday. AU Foundation offered me a very warm and welcoming environment, which allowed me to explore my skills and abilities and fostered growth. I found myself surrounded by mentors who were dedicated to helping me succeed. I was assigned tasks that challenged me and put my skills to the test in the real world circumstances.
Academic and Training Manager
After the tough COVID Scenario, I took a chance to join AU Foundation. It has been a great year now working here. It has been a great opportunity to work with an amazing organization that is full of amazing people as well as wonderful growing potential as a company. AU Foundation provides the right amount of balance between work life and personal time as well as constant learning opportunities. One thing that I have enjoyed most about working at AU Foundation is being able to see the whole picture being a small piece of it, also being able to utilize my strengths and grow them in a way that will further benefit not only myself but the company as a whole.
Being a part of social initiatives that brings about a positive change in the lives of people has always motivated me to follow my passion in the social development sector. I have been serving in communities from past 10 years but with AU Foundation, I have been able to create a community of people, giving back to society through several initiatives designed for AU Bank Employees. Learning has always been a Changes to be done before updating testimonials in the website: continuous process for me and working at AU Foundation gives me a possibility to work on scale and bringing new initiatives in lined with the vision of Bank. In last 2 years we have seen how the global pandemic has impacted the lives of people and I am blessed for being able to serve the communities in such a crucial phase. With the experiences and the learnings, I look forward to keep exploring and giving my best to the organization for the greater good of the society.
Manager- Social Connect
I am a self-learner and strongly believe that you can learn anything from the world. Before working in the development sector, I had no idea what change looked like Working in various systems, I gained insight into what change looks like on the ground and got a sense of what it takes to make an impact. This led me to connect with communities of people to bolster our impact. To maintain the essence of work done on the ground while spinning a message that is easy to understand, I joined the communications team. With two different forms of experience- my core work domain and my work in development - I am working on spinning a strong message with clarity. It has been a rollercoaster ride to spread a message that evokes emotion – but I'm learning from experience.
