People First

Our Purpose

Our aim is to catalyze future ideas consciously into present solutions through People Hiring & Development spaces. We co-create business impact through transformation in individual, collective and cultural ethos.

Company Overview

An organization born out of a deeper purpose, it took 6 months of waiting upon and then with utmost clarity, passion and direction, People First was established in 1995 with a spirit of a startup, perhaps even before the word start-ups were more widely used.

We have always stood for two aspects inner evolution and outer excellence. We continue to be guided by these two aspects in all our work across people hiring and development.

From inception, People First was created with a deeper vision to enable building the true potential of people. To provide a space for individual and collective transformation, to tap into deeper aspirations and to enable change that inspires and lasts. Be it people hiring, development or coaching.

Over the years, we have built a strong expertise in not just the domains we work in, but the process of finding the key and right people for the organization. We have mastered the art of understanding the pulse of the position, organization and the individual and work through the match that balances and harmonizes the fit.

Towards people development, we have pioneered evolving spaces for people development, be it in designing and delivering sustainable learning interventions for leaders, managers or working professionals:

  • Facilitating retreats that align and impact the inner and outer or individual and organization
  • Unique models, tools and frameworks for OD and culture work
  • Discovering purpose / vision
  • Building and Expressing one’s creative and inner potential
  • Coaching and Leading with depth.

With an eye towards excellence, customer centricity and sustainable results, we work ethically with passion, commitment, a strong mind and a caring heart. Work is more than a job, its an expression of potential, purpose and practice.

Our founder, core leadership team and our associates bring diverse experience having worked across sectors, industries, MNCs, MSMEs or start-ups.
