What a pleasure, what a joy to announce the great news that our own Sumita Nanda has been appointed Director, Human Resources at the Latika Roy Foundation.

Everyone who has ever come in to the Foundation – be it as a neighbor, a landlord, a volunteer, a consultant, a vendor, a donor, a funder, a prospective employee, a parent or a staff member – knows Sumita. Like a sprite or a magic fairy, she seems to be everywhere at the same time: orchestrating, managing, arranging, taking charge, looking after every single detail. She deals with travel schedules, major events, calendar dispatches, rents, maintenance, phone connections, internet, powerpoint presentations, bus and van routes, the garden, the plumbing, the pictures on the walls. And every day, without fail, she shows up on time. Just like a Swiss clock.

For so many years now, she has been at the centre of all that we do, and she has handled everything with such grace, intelligence and charm we decided it was time to publicly recognize her stellar work and give her a job where she could shine even more brightly than she already does.

As Director of Human Resources, Sumita will be responsible for a wide range of HR processes – from recruitment to hiring, from writing job descriptions to organizing appraisals, from dealing with leave rules, increments and promotions to identifying training needs on the staff.

I love this photo of Sumita, holding Moy Moy’s birthday cake for her to blow out the candles.

I have always thought of Moy Moy as a mini-employment agency: because of her over 100 people have jobs. Now Sumita is going to help those hundred people become happier and more productive – ensuring that Moy Moy and all her friends get the best possible services that exist.

Happy Birthday to our newborn HR Director!

    Remarkable step taken………..because HR persons with smiling faces are the people most desired by the workers of an organisation……….a rare combination.
