We had a very exciting day at the office in December. FirstRain India celebrated a group of employees who have been with FirsRain for over seven years! Each employee was honored for their commitment and hard work with a bouquet of flowers and a special lunch.
The event was a complete surprise to most of the team. On December 19th, around lunchtime, Chitra, our HR Manager announced a list of people who each were given a bouquet of flowers from Aparna Gupta, our India MD. The rest of the team really had no idea why they were receiving flowers until we suddenly looked around and realized who was being recognized. All of the people called out, had been at FirstRain the longest.
The lunch was very special, full of memories and nostalgia. We went through the hard times and the good times, but most importantly—the fun we have had through the journey of building FirstRain to what it is today. Interestingly enough, the majority of the recognized joined FirstRain as single people and now most are married with kids! They have been through many different roles, working with different managers throughout the company and truly have grown over the years.
In the midst of our tight work schedules, releasing deliverables, promising product outlook and anticipation of FirstRain becoming REALLY successful, this came up as a great surprise.
Congratulations to all of you for being a part of the core team of FirstRain and thanks a ton FirstRain for making us feel special!
