Keeping in mind the theme for this newsmagazine, we asked few CAP members at our HR workshop to share their experiences on how they evolved in the careers & professional life. It was interesting to note that the social sector seems to have evolved enough to attract those from a corporate background to cross over.

I carried forward this experience to my next job at Deep Griha Society at Pune. Since 1991 I have worked on different projects and from April 2016 was promoted as a Project Officer. The roles have grown and so have I. In my first job our focus was only on adoption and through Deep Griha it has evolved - here the focus is wider in areas such as Community development Child care, Women empowerment, Youth development, Medical, DISHA (HIV/AIDS) etc.

I heard a lot about Deep Griha Society, so after my retirement from the corporate sector, I thought I can do something for the community by working with a non-profit. In my previous job I worked with only a specific class of society and today my personality has developed further and I work with community workers with the same ease.

After 14 years and in the private sector, I moved to the social sector in 2008. The main difference between the two is the approach by the medical personnel. There is a paternalistic relationship where the medical community including doctors, nurses will always instruct the patient and family to follow what they say. Most of the time they would not entertain questions nor tolerate any non-compliance in the treatment plans. In the social sector (Palliative care) there is more of an equal partnership between Medical Community and the patients, more humane and they form a partnership to develop an individualized treatment plan suitable to the patient and family.
I have evolved into a better person and professional with tremendous patience and tolerance,a better communicator, learned to accept failure and how to deal with it.
