AnyLinuxWork Leaders set ‘powerful’ examples
Even as the world recently celebrated Earth Hour turning off lights for the cause of Saving Electricity, AnyLinuxWork felt so proud to have gone a step ahead of that. We have efficiently been able to instill a culture of Using Electricity Wisely through setting examples. Instead of passing the buck on others and expecting the rest of the world to change, we have chosen to become the change.
The moment an IO member enters the cabin of CEO Vivek Singhal, the first thing he notices is a well-lit room without the sound of the mercury. A beam of light that oozes in through two wide windows close to which is his desk and computer welcomes a visitor. Vivek practically switches on the lights only after 5.45 pm when the sun rays have gone down.
A similar scene is visible at Nidhi’s (CTO) cabin too. She has quite wisely placed both her white boards on two places where natural light falls on them directly. Nidhi uses the first white board that hangs at the right of her window for her daily reminders. In addition, while she has a meeting when she needs to draw charts, she uses the bigger board on her left. Nevertheless, this serves the purpose without practically switching off many lights. To top it all, Nidhi regularly waters a tiny Christmas Tree kept near her window that adds to the coolness of her room.
Of course, not every IO member gets a cubicle near the window, yet the
example set by these two leaders is enough to inspire thoughtfulness in using electricity smartly. Much of the part of IO headquarters enjoys the coming of direct sunlight and many employees have been inspired to use this natural boon towards using electricity wisely.
Last month, many leaders worldwide joined hands with the cause of Earth Hour. At IO, our leaders became epitomes of our corporate social responsibility.
