If you were in an elevator with Warren Buffet, how would you describe your company, your services or products? What makes your company different from others? What is your company’s biggest strength?
Pranjal Mehta: Were you satisfied with the last IT service that you took? Chances are they might not be good. Well, that’s not the biggest complaint at Zealous System.
This is because we not only fix the problems with the top-notch & industry proven IT solutions but also discover new possibilities to disrupt the market.
As a team, we can serve a wider audience with a mix of expert brains and deeper understanding. Zealous came to my mind when I addressed the elephant in the room, i.e. mundane services and failed deliveries.
We have built Zealous with a resistance and belief in serving clients, timely-deliveries and staying ahead of the competition too. We are certified as “A great place to work” besides being a Microsoft Gold Partner.
Well, we ran out of time to discuss more but would love to continue this conversation in a meeting room.
Quiet quitting, The Great Resignation, are an ongoing trend causing many businesses to struggle keeping talent engaged and motivated. Most are leaving because of their boss or their company culture. 82% of people feel unheard, undervalued and misunderstood in the workplace. In your experience, what keeps employees happy? And how are adapting to the current shift we see?
Pranjal Mehta: In my opinion, a lot of factors play their game to keep the employees happy, which includes a good sense of work-satisfaction, work-life balance, and a positive work culture. They get motivated when they’re appreciated and valued enough for their work.
Keeping the work culture utmost positive and relaxed with a good 5 day policy helps me in adapting to the new paradigm shift. Giving them a good time to manage their work-life balance along with celebrating little wins with everyone gives them a sense of belongingness.
Online business keeps on surging higher than ever, B2B, B2C, online shopping, virtual meetings, remote work, Zoom medical consultations, what are your expectations for the year to come and how are you capitalizing on the tidal wave?
Pranjal Mehta: Online is the new offline and it is on boom!
From remote working to online consultations and that has made us realize that we can operate with the least infrastructure. It is expected that online businesses will continue to grow in popularity and importance, in the year to come.
Virtual meetings and Zoom medical consultations are also expected to become more prevalent. Taking that into consideration, tidal waves were and will always be a part of business escapades. With the correct team and appropriate mindframe, the drive to capitalize the wave comes along.
Christopher Hitchens, an American journalist, is quoted as saying that “everyone has a book in them” Have you written a book? If so, please share with us details about it. If you haven’t, what book would you like to write and how would you like it to benefit the readers?
Pranjal Mehta: Books have always been one of my greatest passions but unfortunately I haven’t written any. If there’s a book written by me, it would revolve around the theme of teamwork and how important it is to have a great team.
Readers can have a thorough understanding that if you have a dedicated and brilliant team, rest can be a history. It would also include the importance of building a correct environment for the new-age startup geeks.
In your experience, what tends to be the most underestimated part of running a company? Can you share an example?
Pranjal Mehta: Oh, the list is quite long but let me state a few. The fact that you do need a good capital to keep the business afloat is itself underrated. Apart from that, the significance of a good team of experts, letting people know that you exist, and so on.
But, the gem of all is the importance of a good team. As stated earlier, people focus on cracking a project/client but it takes a few to actually deliver them the promised possession. This is where a good bunch plays their role.
At Zealous, rather than completely focusing on getting the client, we also focus on building a suitable team for the projects.
On a lighter note, if you had the ability to pick any business superpower, what would it be and how would you put it into practice?
Pranjal Mehta: Well, I’d be picking up sensitivity as a power. Sensitivity to what others are saying, feeling and thinking as well. Sometimes, people are left unheard and neglected. Such emotional intelligence is such a well-versed skill in the workplace, understanding everyone thoroughly.
