A pioneer in the landscape of Health Information Systems (HIS) in India,
Akhil Systems adopts Open – Door policy for its Employees
Winning in the talent market has become essential to earn success in the marketplace. Diverse studies in workplace culture show that organizations, which have laid their foundation on collaborative work cultures based on mutual trust, usually outperform many others in achieving significant higher growth. These researches indicate that a significant ratio of employees in such organizations get satisfaction from their jobs and prefer to stay with the organization for longer. Trust is the defining principle of these great workplaces, and employees here, trust the people to work for; have pride in the work they do and enjoy the company of the people they work for. To achieve this kind of atmosphere at work, most of these organizations adopt an open-door policy for their employees to develop employee trust and encourage open and candid communication among employees at all levels within the organization.
“Since the foundation of Akhil systems, the management has followed open door policy for its employees to keep the working environment healthy and provide opportunities for budding ideas”, says Mr. Sanjay Jain, Managing Director, Akhil Systems Pvt. Ltd. (ASPL). One of the pioneer Hospital Information System (HIS) companies in India, Akhil Systems has been the leading provider of innovative health information systems and services that transform the administrative and clinical operations of healthcare organizations such as Hospitals, Medical Colleges, Clinics, Diagnostic Centers and Pharmacy Chains for more than two decades. Currently, more than two hundred projects running across pan India and worldwide.

ASPL’s innovative solutions have gained recognition all over the globe for simplifying decision making, streamlining surgical procedures, in addition, to making certain compliance along with healthcare standards & practices; in the end saving effort and time to maximize value in addition to profits.
Mrs. Rekha Jain & Mr. Sanjay Jain, the two pillars of ASPL, had resolved to establish the bedrock of Akhil Systems on a set of cultural values or principle that would guide the code of conduct within the organization as well as play an important role in the company’s working and expansion in an international scenario. So, the firm decided to engage and associate with people, who can align themselves with company’s vision and values. Mrs. Rekha Jain, Director, ASPL, says, “We knew that our employees would represent the company even outside of the workplace. So, we kept in mind that we would hire people with good cultural values who can be in line with our vision and reflect positivity. One bad hire can hinder the whole department in a company which ultimately affects the overall growth so we make sure that the cultural value of a person suits the company’s work environment.” APSL opens its doors of opportunity for people, who can become ideal team members having the ‘must-have’ traits for success such as openness, agreeableness, enthusiasm and passion for working. Speaking about traits of an ideal team member for the firm, Mrs. Rekha Jain adds, “A person would be the best fit for Akhil Systems if he or she is self-motivated, eager to help and have a calming demeanor. We look for people, who are active and have the zeal to work towards the organizational goal while helping it to climb the ladder of success.”
Akhil Systems is a place where people work as a family in order to achieve the goals set for reaching the vision of the company. The firm’s open door policy creates a smooth working environment, which acknowledges employees’ contribution to the company’s success and instills them with a sense of belongingness that motivates them to work towards the welfare of the organization. The employee centricity of ASPL’s policies is clearly indicated by the fact that many employees have been happily associated with the company for over ten years, facilitating their skills to help the company grow. The work environment, here, is quite friendly and supportive and the management leaves no stone unturned to maintain transparency and communication among the employees to build trust, which is an essential element for overall growth in every organization. With an aim to make its employees feel valued and spur their motivation, the management at APSL duly appreciates and recognizes employees’ efforts that contribute to achieving success and organizational growth. Mrs. Rekha Jain, Director, ASPL, shares with us, “Employees are recognized for their efforts with rewards, appraisals, and showers of praises. We know that when an employee’s effort is appreciated he or she feels positive about the organization and colleagues as well as feels motivated to work towards its benefit. The hard work and efforts are duly recognized by providing certificates of appreciation, awards, monetary incentives etc.”
Everybody has to face failures in their initiatives at some point as they can be equally possible outcomes of a process that eventually lead to learning. APSL’s unique responses towards treating failures of their employees reflect the management’s humane consideration and mature outlook towards handling failures. Mr. Sanjay Jain, Managing Director, (ASPL) shares his views about this saying, “It would be highly fictitious if we say that we have never scolded an employee on his or her failure. But, failures suggest that the person was trying and, that is, respected in Akhil Systems. As quoted by Bill Gates, “It’s fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure”. Akhil Systems believes in the same thinking as not only the employee learns from failure; the company learns too. We handle failures of our employees by providing better support to them so that they can overcome the challenges and failures without worrying about the negative consequences. We believe that with the help of unity and support, we can sail through the roughest waves of the sea with ease.”
Having built the organization on the core values of innovation, ownership, integrity and mutual respect, Akhil Systems has been implementing innovative e-Health technologies and advanced models of patient care in the healthcare arena since last two decades. The firm is now looking forward to grow further with the mission of doubling its turnover by offering a new range of products. Speaking about ASPL’s future plans, Mr. Sanjay Jain shares, “We plan to expand our geographical territory by 2020 and increase our market share to a great extent. This set milestone is unachievable without the sincere efforts and dedication of our employees.”
