INTRODUCTION: DEVELOPMENT 360 Degree

Development 360 Degree – As the name suggests is all about an all-round development.

This is an initiative that came into action when all enthusiasts of KGD got together with a burning desire to do something that is beyond their professional responsibilities. Volunteers got together and brain-stormed to Ideate, Share & Action together.

The initial sessions brought forth a number of concerns, ranging from improving inter-team interaction to developing neighbourhood’s street-front. And the underlying intent was clear – to add an edge to ourselves as Individuals, to our teams, to our environment and to KGD as an International Firm. The Group began with assimilating ideas in 4 basic categories, so that like-minded efforts can function in a common direction.

Ideas were categorized under 4 streams, based on the circle of impact the initiatives will cater to – Individual, Department/ Office, KGD Cares (Create Awareness and Responsibility Effectively toward Society) and International Scenario.

The 4 teams decided to take up responsibilities and resolved to accomplish atleast 1 small step in each month.

Putting below a glimpse of the Teams and their first initiatives towards their respective streams:

INDIVIDUAL DEV. DEPARTMENT/ OFF. DEV. KGD CARES DEV. ON INTERNATIONAL MAP
