Giving back to the Community: ReBITians step forward
Sarvesh Bedekar, Associate Manager - Full Stack Developer, Research and Innovation team, mentored a team of six engineering students from his alma matter, Sardar Patel Institute of Technology, at the ‘Smart India Hackathon 2018’ (Hyderabad Centre). They emerged as one of the ‘Grand Finale’ winners and took home the gold medal and the prestigious trophy! The non-stop, 36 hour national level event was conducted by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the Human Resources ministry. The theme was creation of innovative technical solutions for different ministries, states and sectors. Sarvesh was chosen by his college team to mentor them. He helped the students organize scrums, follow Continious Improvement/ Continuous Development (CI/CD) processes and use the Intranet network to host local development infrastructure. Their winning idea was to automate the current manual information collection process for the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). They developed a dynamic forms platform with drag and drop form creation options, used optical character recognition technologies to digitize the existing forms and Blockchain to store immutable and auditable records. The technology stack employed by the team includes Angular, NodeJs, MongoDb, Redis and Hyperledger blockchain. The team immensely benefited from Sarvesh’s professional expertise and industry experience. Kudos to Sarvesh and his mentees for a stellar performance!
Another of our colleagues Anthony Vinose, Associate Manager - Information Technology, Corporate Center, recently mentored more than 60 engineering and technology students at the National Institute of Electronics & Information Technology, Patna to help them qualify for ‘WorldSkills 2019’ (an Olympic equivalent for geeks), to be held in Kazan, Russia. The students were mentored on technical skills, time management and equipped to meet the grueling demands of WorldSkills. He also guided the students on a few core technical concepts like RADIUS server, CA server, Postfix and Dovecot. In 2015, Anthony was selected among 15,000 contestants through a rigorous screening process to represent India at WorldSkills - Sao Paulo, Brazil. He recalls his experience of competing in the four day event wherein the contestants were expected to establish Windows platform, Linux platform and network security on a high-end server using virtualization technology. This exercise requires a time span of 4-5 months in the market place and it is a rarity to find such a skillset (extensive knowledge on all the three platforms). The Indian government also encourages our national representatives by introducing them to OEMs of different software companies to help them in turn beef up their knowledge on the different platforms and compete in the international event. ReBIT is proud of Anthony’s volunteering and community contribution.
We fully support our team members’ volunteering efforts and contributing back to the community.
Two -phase celebration of International Women’s day : ReBIT’s commitment to diverse and inclusive work place
The recent celebrations of International Women’s day at ReBIT were marked by speech from a successful women leader, interaction, fun-filled exercises, delicious treats, and tributes to women who have impacted men and women. The active participation of the male colleagues increased the impact of the event.
Two-days prior to women’s day, Dr. Pradnya Saravade, Additional DGP of Maharashtra Police addressed ReBITians. She mentioned about the rising status of women and the social reinforcements. A surgeon and an IPS officer, Dr. Saravade also briefed on her motivation to join the civil services, impact of technology for policing and work life balance for young parents. She gave the keenly listening audience tips for focusing on physical well-being and mental health to ensure a long and successful professional life. Nandkumar Saravade, CEO, ReBIT explained 'Child Tax', an indirect cost borne by working women as they balance work and personal life post pregnancy, and the need to compensate women workers for the same.
On 8th March, the International Women’s Day, the women employees of ReBIT were in for a wide-range of surprises, starting with macaroons.Then, it was time to create innovative crafts and this session was open to both male and female employees. Creative art-forms like calligraphy, montages, and doodles were pouring in through the day and were dedicated to women who have inspired and encouraged the artists. A business-lunch session for women employees was in the offing. The wholesome day could not have been rounded off better than with cutting the special cake baked for the occasion. At ReBIT, close to a fourth of our workforce is made up of women.
We believe that the complexity of today’s world can only be tackled by inclusivity and diversity of our team and our thinking. We embrace differences and meld them into our resolute purpose.
Celebrating the 3rd anniversary of ReBIT’s Foundation day
Journey so far and the forward march
“We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly, but let us never lose sight of the reason for the journey, or miss a chance to see a rainbow on the way.”
Gloria Gaither, songwriter and author
ReBIT celebrated its 3rd foundation day on 4 July, 2019. It was definitely a “day to remember” as ReBITians reflected on their journey and values as a part of the ReBIT family. The third anniversary was a special occasion to pause, celebrate and reaffirm the company’s mission.
On this memorable occasion, ReBITians braved the rain gods to gather and celebrate at their new office at Mindspace, Juinagar. The milestone was perfect to contemplate on the three-year long journey that the public start-up has traversed, which had started from a small space at the RBI, Belapur office. The office reception was tastefully decorated with flower-rangolis adorning the entrance and the zone was soon converted into a ‘Selfie-spot.’ The day commenced on a sweet note with the distribution of chocolates.
After a scrumptious lunch, a laughter act by comedian Shaurya Tyagi was planned. ReBITians had a gala time at the ice-breaking remarks; and the HR department was extremely pleased when Shaurya announced to try his luck at a full time job by submitting his resume! He shared funny anecdotes about living in Mumbai versus his life in Delhi and many in the audience could relate to it.
After a session of laughter, the 15-minute ReBIT corporate video was played to introduce the new members to the building blocks of ReBIT culture, and its evolution, mission, vision and culture. ReBIT’s VP Corporate Centre Shenoj Balaraman laid down the context of the meet and spoke about his experience at ReBIT. He then invited all ReBITians for a time travel talk, and a trip down the memory lane.
Nandkumar Saravade, CEO, ReBIT reminisced about the pleasant instances from the initial days at RBI Belapur office and the warm hospitality and support extended by senior RBI officials. He further emphasised on the need to aspire for higher work quality standards and to continue fulfilling the mission for which the institution was created.
Different verticals recounted and cherished their experiences, led by their respective head. The oldest and the youngest employee, in terms of their stint at ReBIT were invited to elaborate on their joining motivation, memorable moments in the organisation, encomium from stakeholders, challenging projects and messages to fellow colleagues. Joseph Joshy, Senior Vice President and head of Project Management vertical at ReBIT, related an interesting story from Ramayana to drive the point of continuity in business by focussing on the primary objective. Different team members shared stories about their interviews at ReBIT, their expectations, achievements, motivations and future goals.
At the end, the four youngest members of the ReBIT family cut the anniversary cake. The CEO presented a token of appreciation to each ReBITian for their contribution wrapping up the event. The vibe, energy and the reminiscing denoted the spirit of OneRebit culture in the true sense.
While we at ReBIT realize that we have miles more to go, we enjoy our journey together and as a team. As one of the ReBITians remarked, ‘The foundation is strong, the pitch is laid, now we have to learn to play consistently well”.
