"On the occasion of Galaxy Surfactants completing 40 years and for celebrating a decade long sustainability journey, we need to understand that there are seven key areas (pillars) that we should look into for creating a right platform for people to perform and lead - creating diversity, trust of the organisation with the individual, make them empowered by providing realistic challenges to explore themselves, having long term vision for organisation and its people, associate and syncing them with common focus of the organisation, make them part of the shared vision and growth journey and the most important part is to have care and empathy for them, " said Abhishek, COO, Eli Lilly Services India Pvt. Ltd.

"To summarise from COO's lens and business perspective, talent to outlast is great construct, which is the objective of the organisation. Both parties should have shared accountability towards it in both good as well as in tough times," said Abhishek.

"Learning from my 37 years of experience is that we don't pay sufficient focus on capable and motivated people like capital expenditure and business diversification etc. Talent and motivated mindset is very much interlinked with business growth and sustainability and has to be reviewed at the highest level like we do all other reviews in the organisation," said Dr R. Sridhar, Human Resources Veteran.

"Another important aspect is whenever company faces financial turbulence, cost cutting is done by laying off cost concerning employees, reducing trainings, benefits and remuneration of the employees is a wrong mindset. Human Resource is the only part of the organisation which has means and its end, all other parts have only means. Human Resource should be called as Resourceful. Humans. Only then organisation will look at it as not as cost to be optimised but as an investment to be maximised," said Dr R. Sridhar.

"Businesses are facing several challenges and especially related to sustainability, one of the biggest combating and mitigating factor for the climate change risks. These days, many leading companies are focusing on maintaining the carbon neutrality as a goal. And from the perspective of Galaxy Surfactant and other FMCG sector, there is an alarming water scarcity. To increase the importance of sustainability, businesses need to measure and understand how their operations and products impact the environment," said Dr Rajesh Singh, Sr Director India and South East Asia, Sphera.

"In today's date, Sustainable value creation is utmost important and the main drivers for creating the same are vision and growth, return on investment and de-risking the business. Any company who are working on these drivers are creating the value for the company. When company says it's a cost on the company, it's actually an investment be it working towards internal stakeholders by grooming employees, looking after their well-being or external community - stakeholder, supplier etc. Any investment in sustainability helps in creating value for the company and improve company's competitive context," said Dr Anju Singh, Professor, National Institute of Industrial Engineering.
