"In order to build a great company, we need to build the right culture. At Versa we foster a culture of customer focus, excellence, respect, integrity and accountability," proudly proclaims Kumar Mehta, Founder & CEO, Versa Networks. Versa embodies a positive work environment which is both inspiring and motivating in such a way that employees look forward to going to their jobs everyday. "A great work culture is always evolving as it ensures productivity and growth of both the employee and the organization. Increased productivity means better employee morale and enthusiasm" adds Kumar. Therefore, Versa has roped in passionate and dedicated 'out- of-the-box' connoisseurs and 'find-a-way' adaptive engineers who aim to make it big by working on challenging projects and cutting-edge technologies.

A positive and vibrant work culture is built over time with the proper attention, so Versa fosters a constant and proactive learning culture whose key element is employee productivity, open communication and job satisfaction, which cultivates loyalty. Comprehending that these factors are critical for the long-term success of the company, Versa has built a strong connection with their employees by offering them competitive benefits packages along with an opportunity to directly be a part of company's success via a stock option incentive plan. Employees, being considered the key asset of the organization, are brought to an extremely conducive milieu to kindle innovation throughout.

Kumar says, "Versa believes in incorporating the approaches which will help in team development. Hence, we encourage them to participate in offsite technical & professional training, industry events & shows and reward for self-initiated training. Our team members provide feedback to the leadership through regular one-on-ones and regular engagement surveys along with opportunities for professional development based on an individual's interests".

Incorporated in late 2012 by Kumar Mehta (who has a proven track record of leading mega-projects at startups as well as, publicly traded companies), Versa - pioneers in virtualized network functions and services - has been pushing the limits and breaking new ground in the delivery of next-generation, virtualized network functions and services.

In the past couple of years, the issue of safety for women has gained massive public attention; therefore Versa has incorporated strict HR policies which forbid discrimination or harassment of any kind in support of safety for women. The company also has flexible working hours and gives the choice to female team members to work from home.
