Indian IT security solutions provider, Quick Heal Technologies has appointed as Reetu Raina to lead the people strategy. Her mandate will be to create a leadership pipeline for the company to move to the next level of growth.
Speaking on her new role and responsibilities, Raina says, “what quick heal is looking at is more of a transformation where they want to build organisation for scalability in line with their innovation philosophy. The key role is going to be to be to build for scale and future readiness of the organisation which would encompass attracting, hiring and developing talent.”
Raina has moved in from Sterlite Technologies, a Vedanta group company where she was head-HR since April 2018. At Sterlite, her role was to help the organisation build the global footprints by establishing offices and hiring the talent across globe.
In her career spanning 19 years, her longest stint was with Amdocs. She spent more than 5 years with this company moved up the ranks from regional manager – OD to director corporate HR. In between these two roles, she was also the global practice lead at Amdocs.
An MBA in HR from Pune University, Raina started her career in recruitment and HR operations with Reliance Infocomm in 2000. Later she moved to a training role at ING Vysya. From ING her next destination was Tata AIA Life Insurance where she honed her skills as an L&D professional.
After four years she made another move. This time as L&D head with a Godrej group company, Godrej HICARE. It’s in this company where she transitioned into a generalist role in corporate HR.
Between Amdocs and Godrej, Raina also had a short stint of 10 months with HDFC Bank as AV-P corporate HR. Raina has been practicing adaptive leadership in India and was invited by Evolving Corporate Universities Forum (ECUF) in Singapore to present on the topic. She has also been pivotal in the designing of Leadership Resource Council (LRC) for NASSCOM in partnership with the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore.
Quick Heal Technologies has grown from a small start-up to a global player in the cybersecurity business. However, over the past 25 years the growth has been slow. The company now stands at a cusp where they have to compete with the major players in the market. “The key challenge now would be to build a culture which is more global and ready to attract talent as well as make it a choice of place for them”, concludes Raina.
