Date: Thursday , May 07, 2015
When you say \'Startup\', a usual visualization that comes to mind is a small office with brilliant minds brainstorming ideas to develop out-of-the-box solutions for unsolved pain points of the industry. In such vibrant places, weekends and long working hours become synonymous to passion, goal and success. But a five year old enterprise mobility solutions provider, 42Gears Mobility Systems, is altering the startup work emblem. Here, weekends are not for those extra brainstorming sessions or client meets, but are for rejuvenating the mind and soul to be back at work with a fortifying attitude.
This is how 42Gears offers cutting-edge mobility solutions to over 5000 companies across 90 countries in transportation, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, logistics, education and many others. 42Gears\' solutions, which are primarily designed for mobile devices and tablets, can be extended to the windows version of laptops, help clients increase their mobile workforce productivity, reduce costs and increase profits. One of the core philosophies that the team of 40+ employees follows is to listen to customer\'s requirements before jumping to a conclusion. \"We are a passionate bunch of people who love technology, love to create new things and love to take ownerships. We believe that customers\' growth and employees\' growth go hand-in-hand,\" says Onkar Singh, Founder & CEO, 42Gears.
42Gears has almost an equal ratio of freshers and experienced individuals. The company has a very active mentorship program which allows new entrants to get accustomed to the processes and the technologies with the help of a mentor.

Apart from this, they are also recommended relevant online courses that they need to complete while gearing up for product development. The internal kit of the company that has hours of presentation and workshops designed by their architectural team of engineers also helps these new entrants to be at par with the company\'s goal and mission.
42Gears believes in helping its employees become leaders of future. All employees are encouraged to excel in fields of their choice, be it technology, architecture, product development, automation, customer relationship or business development. Many programs have been put in place with this purpose in mind. One such program is presentation session, during which every employee presents on a topic of his or her choice. The company continuously provides learning exposure to employees through interactions with customers and industry by making them travel to customer locations, participate in conferences, seminars and expositions.42Gears also engages its employees in fun activities which are organized every month. Women safety is given special emphasis by securing the company premises to prevent sexual harassment of any form.

42Gears has set a benchmark of its own in providing work contentment and mental satisfaction to all its employees as it allows grievances of any sort to be put across freely with immediate action guaranteed. Considering employees as its backbone and working for their well-being, the venture envisions to develop new products and technologies in different areas and to uphold its leadership in the market for existing products in the coming days. 42Gears also plans to spread its wings in different geographies including U.S. and Western Europe.
