Ascending your Priorities

International Women’s Day 2015 @ ASCENDERSTECH

For all the Ascenders women & all ascending women from Jayalakshmi Thirugnanam (Director, Ascenders Technologies):

womens day

This is a message to you from me on the occasion of Women’s Day – woman to woman.

“If you pick a particular role or way people see you, it generally sticks for life.”

A small statement I came across very recently and I am amazed at its hard-hitting truth because it came from a woman and she meant it for women.

So choose your roles carefully and decide how you want to be seen and perceived.

Make up your minds that you are always equal to men, if not superior to them.

And I mean in all ways – emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.

We are usually told (mostly by other well-meaning women) to speak, behave and even think in a manner that is convenient for menfolk.

We are conditioned to believe that we are around to facilitate men.

Please do not give in to such wrong beliefs.

Every human being is born in this world to experience self-fulfillment and happiness.

These could come from any source.

You could be happy being a career woman or you could be happy tending a family.

You could be happy painting beautiful pictures or you could be happy creating delicious meals.

It could be anything!

It is up to you to recognize what makes you happy; make it your objective and respect yourself for it.

Only if you respect yourself, believe in your dreams and follow them through, you will be respected by the world.

Express yourself, your desires, dreams and opinions clearly and firmly.

Everything else will fall in place – how you want it to.

19th March 2014 – AscendersTech Anniversary

Another year has quickly slipped away and here we are, standing on the threshold of our seventh year of operations. How time flies and brings with it fresh plans, processes and people…

7th  AscendersTech Anniversary

If we had a magic ball that could give us a glimpse of the future and what it holds for us, wouldn’t that be swell? We would be in a better position to budget and work towards the known rather than the unknown. Unfortunately, there is no magic ball; rather there is only the wisdom to gauge situations as they present themselves…wisdom gathered over the years through a myriad of events, job requirements, customers, vendors, staff, deliverables, ups, downs, swings, offerings and the like.

Lessons and learnings? We (meaning each and every Ascender) run the company as our very own company ought to be run. Jobs have to be done, targets have to be met, sales revenues have to roll in, discipline is to be maintained, timings have to be adhered to and customers have to be satisfied. There are many more details but these pretty much sum it all up.

The new lines of business introduced the last financial year:

  1. Language Translation along with all its allied services such as interpretation, proofreading, editing, content localization and voice overs, in an effective and efficient delivery model using modern technology and resources at global locations
  2. Web applications (renewed & refreshed) – a dedicated internal team to deliver the goods as per client specifications

Our new sister concern – APS or Ascend Property Services dealing with the marketing of Real Estate and all its allied services. We have made quite a few inroads in the Real Estate vertical and have officially announced it very recently.

Wishes to come true...

Wishes to come true…

We have seen an influx of new faces as well as some old ones back into the fold and we welcome them all warmly irrespective of gender, experience and qualifications. The outflows have been regretted as always. But as the saying goes, “The show must go on.”

The HRO department remains to be on top of the internal revenue race what with its capable recruiter workforce and strong customer base. The Web Applications department is trailing right behind and may soon overtake the HRO. Ascenders Business Solutions – ABS – is doing very well under capable hands. The operations are as smooth as ever and this year has seen an increase in the revenues based on the efficient handling of our customer’s systems. The Language Services department seems to be gaining momentum but it is a bit too early to tell. The foundation has been laid well and it is forecasted to be a good year.

We wish every Ascender a long and prosperous growth trajectory in the coming years. We also wish you a career that is driven by passion, loyalty, strong job satisfaction and subsequently, a good work-life merge.

ASCENDERSTECH @ EWIT ANNIVERSARY EVENT

The Executive committee – EWIT

AscendersTech was proud to participate in the EWIT 6th Anniversary Event. As a corporate member of EWIT (Empowering Women in IT), the Ascenders’ women make it a point to attend the various events so meticulously organized by EWIT throughout the year.

AscendersTech with EWIT

This year’s Anniversary event focused on the theme – ‘Women in Leadership-Are we there yet?

The panel speakers were none less than Ms. Nirmala Gopalakrishnan Head-Training Operations and Process consulting, Hexaware Technologies, Mr. Mohan Narayanaswamy, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer – iNautix Technologies India Pvt Ltd., Ms. Srimathi Shivshankar, AVP – Diversity and Sustainability – HCL Technologies, Chennai and Mr. Uppili Srinivasan, Partner & Head – Intellect Global Transaction Banking – Polaris Software, Chennai. The moderator for the event was the vivacious Vijayalakshmi Rao of EWIT.

The theme was based on the fact that women constitute a small percentage of leadership roles in the corporate world and the IT/ITES industry is no exception. The cause for this state of affairs was thoroughly debated on the stage.  Aspects such as lack of leadership qualities, passiveness, diffidence mentoring, family and top management support, sponsors, enough opportunities, pressure levels and extraneous support were just some of the points raised while exploring the prospects of rising up the corporate ladder.
