If you ask entrepreneurs, what's essential for them to create a company of people's choice, the answer will include 'creating a great work culture'. Unsurprisingly, work culture profoundly influences people you attract and retain. Simultaneously, it outlines how people work together in the company and what they eventually achieve. Unfortunately, companies – big or small – in the race to lead the business game often fail to understand the essence of imbibing a finest work culture which has the affinity to make or break a business. Walking the road less travelled is REConnect Energy Solutions – India's largest renewable energy services leader – which has been celebrated for its enviable work culture to help its employees grow personally and professionally.

The brainchild of Vishal Pandya and Vibhav Nuwal, Founders & Directors – who serendipitously got e-Connected through LinkedIn – was incepted in 2010 to provide unique opportunities for renewable energy producers to unbundle the physical electricity and environmental attributes. Under the leadership of these two young business leaders with significant industry experience, the Bangalore headquartered company grew leaps and bounds from two people to 41 people and within first three years, the client portfolio reached about 2 Gigawatt (GW) of capacity of RE spread across India.Founded to service the REC/RPO market, the Company has also evolved fast over last 5 years, utilizing its excellent intellectual potential to offer its services under wind power forecasting and scheduling, demand forecasting for utilities, electricity portfolio management through an innovative web-based platform- clickpower.in and very large pool of power market network that RE has been able to establish over a period of 5 years.

To maintain a healthy work-life balance, REConnect offers its employees flexible working hours, best leave policies and work from home opportunity that has encouraged several female employees to join the organization. The company that highly appreciates brainstorming has conceptualized comprehensive HR policies, which creates the perfect storm of opportunities for creative individuals who endeavor to showcase their talents and produce outstanding services.

"We provide our employees with the freedom to manage their own work. We have made plenty of investments based on the innovative ideas of our team in terms of procuring data and identifying formal engagement," affirms Vishal. Unlike other companies that are hung up on communication skills, the innovation-centric REConnect gladly recruits people who do not have perfect communication skills but are highly efficient in operations. The company grooms them by recommending communication classes and enables them to interact with more people. REConnect believes that its team can do better than industry experts and hence haven't got many on board.
