It is a privilege to be working with a company like Nath Bio-Genes who is driven towards collaborative growth and focussed on achieving goals whilst giving back to society. Our business involves serving the farm community, increasing their income and becoming an active part of the evolving vegetable seed industry in South East Asia. We work closely with the farmers to understand their needs, mitigate risks and future challenges and help them improve their yield through unique vegetable seeds, better cosmetics and adaptability and high disease tolerance. By assessing the different agro-climatic zones, we come up with innovative ideas and harness cutting edge technology to adapt to the outcome.
The developed seeds pass through rigorous testing at multiple levels before reaching the farmers. This assures a high success rate for our wide variety of high-quality vegetable seeds and helps impact the lives of millions of farmers positively. This commitment to quality in every aspect of the cycle is what makes Nath Bio-Genes a great place to work.
I have joined NATH seeds recently and I have immediately realised that it is a place where one can dream big and then hope to achieve those dreams. It's an organisation where one can plan long innings because NATH catalyses your personal and professional growth, while you are aiding its growth. One of the best things about working at NATH is the work culture. The senior management is extremely approachable and receptive to new ideas, each employee is deeply connected to each other and every aspect is intended towards employee benefit. The HR Policies are helpful, systems are fast and easy to understand, etc. All in all, a great place to work.
I feel proud to be part of one of the oldest and biggest groups in the seed industry. Being an established company means having a team of highly experienced and knowledgeable people, who have been in the industry for years. They understand the challenges and add a whole lot of value to the company and all its employees. They have helped launch special technology in cotton, ie. Fusion BT and advance the production of Transgenic Brinjal.
Association with a team like this has added immense value to my career. Nath values their staff and looks after them like a family. A recent example would be during COVID-19 - the company started the ‘Nutrition Garden Project’ through which all the office staff have received organically grown vegetables helping them and their families boost immunity to fight the pandemic. Since I have joined, I have always felt that Nath appreciates and nurtures talent and creativity, making my experience wonderful.
Nath Bio Genes is a great company, giving me multiple opportunities to utilize my skills and knowledge in better ways allowing me to grow personally and professionally. I place a lot of confidence in my leaders at the organization because they have helped me develop and are focussed towards collective growth. The day-to-day decisions taken here demonstrate that quality and improvement are top priority at Nath. The management consistently demonstrates that the people are important to the company’s success. The leaders communicate the company's mission and vision which motivates each one of us.
