HR Head – India, Philips Lighting India Ltd
Anusha’s interest in the business of people management started during her college. She graduated in psychology from Lady Sriram College with a specialisation in organisational behaviour. It is here that she delved into the people aspect of the organisation and gauged its significance. In her career, Suryanarayan has worked across sectors and companies — FMCG, IT, telecom, pharma and electrical. Her experience across companies and industries makes her believe that change is the only constant. “The world is so dynamic nowadays that unless an organisation finds ways to stay agile and adapt, there is a high risk of threat to survival in the near future. Hence, having the right people and leadership is the best insurance for a company to stay agile and nimble-footed in this VUCA world,” she reiterates. Suryanarayan grew along the journey to emerge as a true blue HR professional. The relationships she built across different companies and roles define her, and she counts them as her biggest achievements.
