For many people, work is not just about making a living but also about personal fulfillment and growth. When an employer recognizes this and provides opportunities for both professional and personal development, employees tend to be more engaged and fulfilled in their work. Professional growth opportunities might include things like training programs, mentorship, or opportunities for advancement within the company. These help employees feel like they are developing their skills and building their careers, which can be very motivating.
Personal enrichment opportunities, on the other hand, might include things like wellness programs, volunteering initiatives, or social events. These can help employees feel like they are part of a community and can help them develop skills and interests outside of their professional lives. When an employer provides both types of opportunities, employees tend to feel more valued and fulfilled in their work. They are not just clocking in and out each day, but are actively engaged in developing themselves both professionally and personally. This can lead to better performance, higher job satisfaction, and greater loyalty to the company. Kinara Capital recognizes this and strives to create an environment that ensures that being part of the team is a journey of learning, with a healthy dose of fun and fulfillment.
Rajendra joined Kinara in 2017 as an executive in Business Operations at the company’s head office in Bengaluru, and in the years since, he has worked his way up to the role of deputy manager in the Credit department. He had been motivated to join the company because it offered significant learning and growth opportunities, and in his time here, he has made the most of the conducive environment.
In his current role, Rajendra conducts regular reviews of business requirement documents, carries out business testing, and also works on data instructions and data cuts. He takes pride in not only working hard, but also working smart to hit all his targets.
Rajendra’s greatest achievement at Kinara was helping the Business Operations team carry out disbursements of Rs. 32 crores in a single day! Aside from hitting professional goals, Rajendra also loves the spirit of Kinara, and fondly remembers excitedly chanting the company’s name with a plane full of his colleagues on the way back from a very successful annual meet held in Hyderabad.
He shares, "Kinara has a very open culture and friendly atmosphere, which facilitates easy interactions and collaborations across teams. I really appreciate the fact that I can reach out to anyone across the organizations to get answers or support if I need it. I also love interacting with members of the field team, because I get to learn something new every time I do. Kinara has given me the biggest opportunity for growth, both personally and professionally, and I’m very thankful to be a part of this team."
Rajendra is an ace on the cricket pitch. He’s an opening batsman, and still seized every opportunity to play the sport. Recently, when he participated in the Kinara Cricket League, he had his manager as a teammate. He also wowed everyone by scoring 3 consecutive boundaries!
The place he likes to visit the most is his own village, but Ooty, Kodaikanal and Coorg are also on his list of favourites because he loves the greenery these destinations have to offer. He loved unwinding by driving his car in the early morning on the roads of Coorg while listening to soothing music, and he considers it the best travel experience he has ever had.
