TESTIMONIALS

Anushree

I have been associated with AVAADA Energy (Earlier as Welspun Energy Pvt. Ltd) for almost nine years. Following are the essential things that never made me think to change the organization:
Equal opportunity and exposure for both genders: There is no discrimination regarding capability and recognition. Professional and personal life balance. Excellent working Environment – Learning opportunity by taking responsibilities. Generous support and guidance of seniors – Easy accessibility of seniors for addressing any technical clarifications any time

Nitin

In my career span of 20 years, I spent initial 11 years with five different organizations, and since May 2012, I am working with Avaada (known as Welspun Energy then). Working with Avaada amounts to working with an organization, where you get an opportunity to fulfill all your professional aspirations. Endless opportunities, an Open Idea Culture, approachable and receptive management, and Trusting employee's capabilities are the key factors that motivate me to give more than 100%. I was fortunate to join Avaada in a very initial phase when the Indian solar sector had just started and was not very prominent. Together we build some largest capacity solar plants of their respective times and achieved more than 1 GW operational capacity before any other renewable company. Today we are standing at a capacity of 4 GW capacity (installed and under construction), which gives a great achievement. The best part is the organization's growth is associated with the growth of employees personally and professionally. That's the reason the core team members are with the group since inception. I am confident that this journey will continue in the same manner for many more years to come.
