We’ve read enough about how tough life has been due to COVID-19, but what positives can we take from the pandemic and what has the lockdown taught me? Pouring my heart out here!

Decoding employee loyalty: What makes people stay loyal to a company?

What makes an employee stay loyal to a company for decades? Is it the monetary aspect, the perks, or the career boosting opportunities or something else? At Nagarro, our organizational DNA, governed by its core values: CARING, embraces a humanistic people-first way of thinking and nurturing. A culture that we believe, fosters employee loyalty. We spoke to a few Nagarrians, who stayed with us through thick and thin; to understand the reasons behind their belief and trust in Nagarro. Here is an account of their journeys, experiences, hopes, and on how Nagarro played a pivotal role in their individual growth and loyalty over the years.

Effective remote working: Leading from home

While every employee faces some challenges in adjusting to the shift towards working from home, this change presents even more tests for those in leadership positions. In a traditional setup, the role of managers is often to organize, instruct, and control the work of their teammates to ensure high productivity and alignment towards company goals. As discussed in the previous parts of this series, some of these responsibilities have shifted towards the team or the individual. Employees are self-responsible for ensuring their productivity, work planning, and alignment. In such a scenario, what is the role of leadership in a remote setup?

CARING@Nagarro: Mansi Gupta on being ‘CARING’

CARING - being empathetic, respectful and non-judgmental - is a core value here at Nagarro. At the same time, it’s an acronym for six other core values⁠ - Client-centric, Agile, Responsible, Intelligent, Non-hierarchical, and Global⁠ - that are part of our org DNA and reflect our unique culture. After interviewing Nagarrians from around the world to understand their perspectives about these values, I created a series of blog posts, with each post focusing on one of the values. This seventh blog - the last of the series – focuses on what it means to be CARING, and why this core value is a ‘true North‘ as well as a lodestone at Nagarro.

The dark side of UI test automation - Part 1

My first steps in UI test automation were bumpy and frustrating. Today, almost nine years into automated quality assurance, thinking about my beginning, makes me grin. I consider myself lucky since I had good mentors to provide the knowledge and motivation to help me strive to be a better engineer. In my journey, I read many books and articles about the ‘best practices’ around building test automation, software development, and development in general. However, I have seldom read about the problems with UI test automation. Where you could go wrong, and what should be done or not be done at a team or organization level. This two-part blog series is not a ‘Top 5’ or ‘Top 10’ compilation of things to avoid or to do, but an honest assessment of my experience regarding the real problems with UI test automation.

After interviewing Nagarrians from around the world to understand their perspectives about these values, I created a series of blog posts, with each post focusing on one of our core values. Here’s the sixth blog from the CARING series, ‘G for Global’.
