Looking back at the past few years, it is simply amazing to see how Simplifai has expanded in terms of workforce, locations, and clientele. Regardless of the region where our employees might be, Simplifai is a close-knit family that not only works together but also celebrates together. With this notion in mind, the Simplifai Management from our headquarters in Oslo, Norway visited the India office over a span of four months. Check out a glimpse of all the sessions and activities conducted when the Management personnel visited the new office in Pune.
Management’s Welcome to Simplifai India new office
The Management was welcomed graciously at the India office, starting with a short tour and a few informal catchups with the employees.
Sessions and Activities
GDPR session with Bård Myrstad and Imran Tamboli
An insightful session on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was held by our CEO Bård Myrstad and CTO Imran Tamboli. The session covered various pointers about what is GDPR, its importance, and basic workspace practices that our employees follow daily to support compliance. The session ended by emphasizing how Simplifai’s maintains the stand of being the best-in-class for GDPR compliance.
Team sync conversations with Daniel Kohn
Our CCO, Daniel Kohn, held several team syncs to get to know everyone with conversations about work areas and what motivates our employees as well. One particularly important sync was a session with the India Sales team that covered discussions about various case studies.
We decided to get out of the city limits for a fun-filled one-day outing at Garud Machi on the outskirts of Pune with the Management. With team-building games, lunch, and adventure sports, it was an activity to remember.
Dinner with Bård
, Imran, and Daniel
A fantastic dinner at Tarsh Restaurant in Pune was held on the last evening before Bård Myrstad, Daniel Kohn, and Imran Tamboli bade their goodbyes. It was a beautiful evening for the Simplifai family with loads of conversations and team bonding over delicious food.
Product Day with Erik Leung
Simplifai Product Day was held as an offsite whole day event at Sadanand Regency, Pune, to bring cross-team collaboration and startup culture between teams. Employees were divided into groups of four based on work backgrounds like product analysts, designers, QAs, and BAs. Each group had to present an idea about a product, or a startup related to specific topics and solve problem statements. The idea was to pitch startup ideas to a panel of investors represented by Ms. Vasim Shaikh (CEO – India office), Mr. Ketan Sharma (Head of Sales – APAC), and Mr. Tushar Kadam (Director – Customer Engagement).
Indoor Game Gala
With the Management, employees spent some time away from all the sessions and team meetings. They participated in different indoor games. It was indeed an exciting time with games such as indoor cricket, table tennis, foosball, 9-ball pool, and many more.
AI Chats with Erik Leung
Insightful AI Chats were held once every week over the span of a month by Erik Leung, Simplifai’s Co-founder and Visionary. The sessions delved into various aspects of Artificial Intelligence such as its basics and origins, where AI stands in current times, and how it would be in the future. These sessions were highly interactive with employee participation for questions and opinions.
Overall, it was certainly a memorable experience for Simplifai when our Management visited the India office comprising Bård Myrstad, Erik Leung, Imran Tamboli, and Daniel Kohn. At Simplifai, we like to lead by example that we not only work hard but also celebrate hard and ensure a thriving work-life balance.
