Working mothers at Advaiya – Sonika’s story
Unlike most new mothers, Sonika Jain, did not have to face the moral dilemma of leaving her thriving career to look after her new born. She could continue to work without worrying about her daughter.
Sonika has been associated with Advaiya for more than four years in a variety of roles, and is currently working as an EPM Engineer handling multiple projects. And, she is a proud mom of a two year old daughter.
“While on my maternity leave, I used to worry about how I will be able to pick up work after a break. Also, I was not sure how I would take care of my baby with a busy job,” Sonika said. “But with a supporting team by my side, I could return to work just two months after Seerat was born.”
“With the in-house baby care, I can take out time from my busy schedule and visit my baby multiple times in a day, and sometimes when she needs me I can be right there with her, while completing my work. It feels comforting to know that your baby is growing up in front of you,” added Sonika.
It is a tough decision for any woman to continue to work after having a baby – balancing job and motherhood. Advaiya offers a number of flexible work arrangements and a relaxed working environment, which enable employees to give their best and live their best. Facilities like work from home, flexible working hours, baby care, help women to manage big changes coming in their lives, and encourage them to follow their dreams.
“I am a working mother and can absolutely relate with the struggles new moms go through when returning to work,” said Ruchika Godha, COO of Advaiya. “Flexible working hours and baby care facility definitely encourage women to put their career on par with their family and keep pace at work.”
Advaiya has always aimed to provide facilities that empower all employees to maintain a good work-life balance. We continue to offer such benefits, and are always evaluating potential new offerings.
