This year, Aye Finance ranked 4th among India’s Best Companies to Work For in 2021 by the Great Place to Work institute! With the entire world navigating a pandemic, the recognition means that much more to us this year. We, as a team, have achieved success, stayed positive, and found new ways to support each other in previously unimaginable ways.
At Aye, we have always ensured that our employees know that they are valued. Our goal remained the same in 2020 – 2021.
As an organization, we follow key values and principles which aid us in making our workplace a healthy environment to grow in. Here are the core values that were assessed by the Great Place to Work institute team that contributed to Aye Finance ranking among the top 5 India’s Best Companies to Work For:
Fairness – Aye practices fairness in all its interactions and intentions. We achieve this through equality, impartiality, and honest communication. Our culture promotes long-term relationships through collaborative efforts to overcome each challenge.
Pride – Ayetians are deeply aware of the impact their work creates. This awareness instills pride and a sense of achievement in our team, where each one is cognizant of their value and goes home satisfied.
Our aim at Aye is to support micro-entrepreneurs across India to achieve their dreams, and nothing brings us more joy than to see this community prosper. We have always aimed to go beyond being a traditional lending partner by providing our customers holistic support. Each Ayetain, today, takes great pride in this ethos and carries it with them every day. They know their efforts in the workplace are contributing to a larger goal of empowering MSMEs in India.
Camaraderie – Our teams across India are deeply synergized and work with great friendship and loyalty. Celebrating each other and valuing each other’s contributions have helped us feel connected to each other.
At Aye, we regularly organize activities where everyone can get together and participate as a team. Our events such as E-Chaupal, Virtual Town Hall, and Weekly Virtual Yoga Sessions bring our employees closer and provide a space where they can share real-time knowledge, opinions and ideas.
As Sanjay Sharma, Managing Director, Aye Finance, says, “A uniting mission to serve micro-businesses, a highly engaged workforce, and an achievement-oriented management team with a social heart is a unique mix that we have created at Aye Finance”.
Credibility – We need to be trusted by our employees and clients – to be there for them and stand firm on our word. To that end, we have established core values that drive us. We ensure that we are always principally aligned to these values for the benefit of our employees. What also lends us further credibility are the numerous awards we’ve won and the partnerships we’ve created over the years. All of these serve as acknowledgments of the hard work and dedication each Ayetian puts in.
Respect – Aye maintains a respectful environment at work and makes sure that it is always a safe space for its employees. This helps us transform into a thoughtful and transparent workplace with opportunities for meaningful communication and work. Through our various initiatives and policies, we work hard to ensure that our employees feel cared for and respected in the workplace. Some of the ways we do this include – mentoring programs, leadership development workshops, and creating a culture where every employee has a means of expressing their opinion.
Ultimately, it is the dedication of each Ayetian that allows us to create a work culture we can all be proud of. We wouldn’t be among the Top 5 Great Places to Work for in India without our great team. Thank you to each Ayetian for truly making us a #GPTW. We stand together and grow together.
