In his own words, "People hold the key to making a modern organization excel in its market place. A good blend of people-process-technology, in varying measures at different stages of business life-cycle, is the magic potion to developing a high-growth organization.

In today's organizations, people don't need employment; people need employability. People don't need a job to do, but a platform to perform. It is not about employee satisfaction, nor is it employee engagement. It's about 'Joy of Work’."
