New year means time to make new resolutions, right? At BYJU’S we believe in creating a culture of learning at the workplace. Keeping that in mind, we kicked off the New Year with the #BetterYou series. As part of this project, BYJUites participated in a series of sessions and workshops, focusing on both professional and personal growth.
We wrapped up the first week of this new year with a funtastic Bollywood Fitness Dance party. And oh what fun that was! Choreographer Pooja Rajpurohit amped up the session with a medley of foot tapping Bollywood dance numbers. And guess what? Participants also grooved to the beats of their personal favourites by requesting the songs!
The next workshop under the #BetterYou Series was led by Priyanka Manchanda, Organizational Psychologist at YourDOST; our mental health partner. From exploring what lack of confidence looks like to discussing tips to build self-confidence, the hour-long session was filled with wonderful insights. What was even better was seeing BYJUites participate in large numbers to make the best of the webinar.
Taking charge of one’s personal finances is extremely important for a brighter future. In order to help BYJUites with key aspects of financial planning, we organised a session on Financial Literacy with the experts from Scripbox. Naval Painuly, Program Head, Scripbox, shared tips and tricks on managing personal finance and achieving financial goals. Participants also got all their finance-related queries answered during the Q&A session, held towards the end of the workshop.
Next up, was a live webinar on ‘Goal Setting’ and developing a winner mindset. Expert Pallavi Shimpi, Founder, Moving Minds who is also a counselling psychologist, shared useful tips on setting real and feasible goals.. She also shed light on prioritising goals and building higher tolerance for the challenges and hurdles in life.
In these extraordinary times, we understand the importance of awareness to deal with uncertainties. With this in mind, was born the Week of Wellness for BYJUites. All the sessions conducted as part of this initiative focussed on navigating through the challenges of the pandemic and building a culture of holistic wellbeing. In fact, experts from Zariya, YourDost, Visit, and Manipal Hospital joined forces with us to host insightful sessions like sound meditation, awareness sessions on Omicron, and post-Covid care workshops. Here’s a glimpse at all the workshops.
