It’s been said that to really understand someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. Global Operations is in the business of building productivity, so instead of walking, we “desk swap” – meaning, we perform our daily roles in a different desk location and use that time to learn about what our colleagues do.

This week I volunteered to serve, along with many others, at Habitat for Humanity. I do this every year and always find it so inspiring, whether meeting the new home owners or the amazing people that support this cause all year round. This year, the inspiration came from such a surprising place that I wanted to share it with you.

There are many reasons why I’m proud to work at GE, but the most important one is the company’s unparalleled commitment to diversity, which has enabled me to bring my full self to work each and every day. It’s been journey to get to this level of comfort in the workplace, as I’ve essentially “come out” three times, but GE has been by my side the entire time.

GE for Me

I joined GE two months back, my first day on the job was May 15, 2017. I remember walking to GE Chennai office on my first day I was a bit nervous, I believe uncertainty was behind my anxiety. Though I am not a kind of a personality who easily get worried…my long and productive association with my previous organization (a BPO company) has groomed me to face endless variance and contentions business environment…however, I believe I was worried because I was not able to find an accommodation in the city.

Here GE played a positive role and turned my worries into sweet moments.

I am a person who like to be challenged, so I chose SEED as my career start-up in China after 5 years living in United States.

SEED is a 2-year leadership program with 3 rotations in Global Operations for junior talents. Now I am on my last rotation and about to graduate in this August. Here I would like to share something after spending 2 years in this program.
