The catastrophe of COVID-19 pandemic had a radical impact on the world. It spared no industrial sector causing crippled economies, hampering countless businesses followed by indiscriminate layoffs and unemployment.

This hostile environment gulped several major and minor corporate houses keeping the jobs of many at stake. Seasoned as well as novice employees were in a dilemma about the future causing a situation of uncertainty and insecurity.

Amidst this chaotic situation, it was only the H.R. professionals who buffered the strain with their proficiency and indomitable spirit. The H.R. warriors across the globe assessed the situation accurately and handled it efficiently by establishing an equilibrium between the employers and employees. They steered the industry through the turmoil and strived tirelessly to restore it to normal.

Indira Group is proud to be associated with many such distinguished H.R. professionals from prominent corporate houses. They along with Indira Corporate Relation Cell handled the pandemic situation commendably without revoking a single appointment letter of our students. They instilled hope and reassured the students about the promising future.

H.R. professionals play a pivotal role in the development of the industry by managing the most precious Human asset. We are optimistically looking forward to the situation to get normal wherein the H.R. professionals have to play a key role.

Indira Group of Institutes, Pune recognises the efforts of H.R. professionals and appreciates their selfless service towards the society. The Indira H.R. Super Achiever Awards 2020 venerates such eminent H.R. professionals for their contribution towards the betterment of industry and in turn the nation.  

The theme of this year’s awards is ‘We Shall Prevail’. It symbolises the unconquerable human spirit to triumph over every adversity and to emerge victoriously.
