After hours with Sudhin Mathur, Director- smartphones, Lenovo India.
1 The job: Working at Lenovo has been great; there has never been a dull moment since the day I joined. I particularly enjoy the dynamic work culture and the entrepreneurial way of working. While the decision making is fast, one is encouraged to take some risks. The kind of empowerment we are given at work makes it very enjoyable to work here. The flexible environment also makes it worthwhile to work here.
2 The weekdays: A typical workday starts pretty early and begins with checking mails that would have come in from the global teams. After that, I head to the office and immerse myself in daily meetings. There is also a lot of travel involved in my work, I need to travel 2-3 days in a week. There is a new challenge to deal with every day at work and that’s what makes it interesting.
3 The weekend: Weekends are generally spent with family members and catching up on the movies. I love to explore new eateries and try different cuisines. Also, very importantly, I catch up on some rest after the hectic week.
4 The toys: My current favourite toys are the new Lenovo Selfie flash and the Moto 360 watch.
5 The logos: I am not someone who endorses serious corporate attire all the time unless it’s for important situations. I like to wear what reflects my attitude and that makes me feel confident and approachable. In my opinion, it’s not all about the clothing we choose, it’s the attitude with which we carry it off that makes one feel young and free spirited.
