“It truly has been a wonderful experience with Sannam S4 right from the stage of applying to this day where I already feel I belong to this family. I was in touch with Bhavna throughout this journey and she has been very supportive at each stage starting from explaining the role till post joining formalities and has answered all my big and small questions very patiently and promptly. My onboarding was done during the ‘new normal’ phase of lockdown and never did I feel even for a moment that the team from Sannam S4 wasn’t available. The induction was a very informative and useful process and was coordinated by Vanshika who made sure it went smoothly despite all the teams being remote. I would like to thank the Sannam S4 HR team for giving me an amazing experience as I entered these new doors and I look forward to my journey here.

My integration into the organization- its practices, people, vision, and values- was smooth and effortless despite the COVID-19 situation. Being with Sannam S4 is like relishing an exotic cuisine which beckons all employees with two of its richest ingredients- Leadership style-like the Guntur chilli that lends rich character and the vibrant culture that is a perfect blend of aromatic spices infusing it with irresistible flavour.”

Employee Engagement Activities during the COVID-19 Lockdown
The Tajness Competition
Say Taj Hotel, and these words simply bring up images of – royalty, Indian heritage, authentic original palaces, landmark hotels, world-class hospitality, impeccable services, and much more. With a legacy of over 117 years, Taj indeed is an undisputed leader in the Indian hospitality sector. Now, imagine you were residing at one of the Taj properties when the 90-day Covid-19 lockdown was announced! What would you do?
This is exactly what we posed as a question to our team members. We asked them – ‘To Imagine!’ To let loose their wildest imagination and come up with fascinating stories, where they could time-travel to different eras and stay at any of the Taj properties they chose. The Sannam S4 “Tajness” Competition, was held in collaboration with our strategic partner, The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL)., saw an enthusiastic response.

While staying at home, this was one of the best times to capture and create heartfelt family memories and cherish the time forever.
