Demystifying the Sahyadri Culture

Dr. Farida Virani was engaged for a three day workshop held at Saputara to help ‘Demystify the Sahyadri Culture’ Sahyadri Farms, the farmer producer company (FPC) set up in 2011, has grown to become the largest FPC in the country, with a membership of 8,000 farmers and a turnover of Rs 300 crore. Vision, Mission and Core values were revisited with focussed clarity along with their interpretations and impact on stakeholders, systems, processes, everyday activities and decision making. Top managers were sometimes surprised when they realized the differences between how they perceived the culture at Sahaydri and how their subordinates interpreted the culture. Chairman Mr. Vilas Shinde remarked, “the workshop had empowered employees at every level know how to live out the vision, mission and purpose of Sahyadri and also understand the behaviours expected of them every day”.
