Devesh Chawla

It is vital for leaders to be content and have strong bonds with their teammates in order to increase productivity. They should also all feel appreciated to give them a sense of belonging. Find out how Devesh Chawla, Founder and CEO at Chatur Ideas, and one of the Top 100 Great People Managers of 2021 by Great Manager Institute® published in Forbes India, made the employees love the firm.

“Compliment each employee for doing a good job.” 

When his team accomplishes anything admirable, according to Devesh, they receive an email of congratulations. In order to make the procedure more engaging and enjoyable, he has gamified it. He also grades employees on performance, demeanour, soft skills, etc., and gives monthly prizes and hampers to those who have performed well.

“The ‘United We stand’ motto is instilled in the entire office.”

Devesh assigns team members milestones that are 1.2 times their average performance, and the entire office works together to help each team member reach their milestone. In this approach, the team can celebrate every member’s achievement of a milestone they set for themselves once a year.
