Allstate Megastar: Ragavi Ramakrishnan.

Consultant, ASPL India

When I was in ninth grade, I read an interesting biography and this one quote "I had a clear vision: if I take up an assignment, I'll do full justice to it; otherwise I'll walk away" has stayed with me and it became my motto.

Joining Allstate wasn't on the cards as I had initially only been associated with the organization as a contractor. But the infectious energy and the conducive-for-growth environment made me fall in love with the place. I was exhilarated when I became an employee at Allstate in 2017, and since then there has been no looking back.

I work with a dynamic team that handles queries and works shoulder-to-shoulder with our US counterparts. This gives me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge and constantly learn from the home market.

What I really like about Allstate India is the focus on development of people and company priorities for long-term growth. This is evident by the large number of opportunities and numerous platforms the organization provides to its employees to prove their mettle. For instance, I don't just work with multiple departments — sharing my insights and gaining valuable knowledge — but I am also able to take part in initiatives organized by the CSR team; work with allworX technology innovation lab; and participate in fun tasks, such as emceeing events. And while the organization proactively encourages participation across avenues, they also appreciate our big and small wins, such as when I got appreciation from Chetan Garga, Managing Director, Allstate for emceeing an event! Till date, I am incredibly proud of that significant appreciation.

Another pivotal and pride-inducing moment for me was when my essay was among the four shortlisted and I got a chance to attend the Allstate sponsored Grace Hopper event, where I learned more about women pioneers and idols in the tech field; connected with seniors and peers; and interacted with other industry giants. It was a true learning experience.

I may not be highly tenured in the organization, but I've had the chance to sit at the same table as the managers and top executives where my ideas and opinions were heard and appreciated. I want to thank Allstate for providing a comfortable and open environment where my voice is heard, and that gives me the confidence that I have the ability to go beyond. The organization has also been supportive of my passion led NGO projects to provide economical help to the underprivileged strata.

I feel Allstate truly is a great place to work at and I look forward to contributing my best and growing with the organization.
