Chillibreeze in North East India
Chillibreeze is one of the first global companies to start operations in North East India. We are not just a writing/designing outfit operating from a clichéd Indian location. A big part of who we are stems from our pioneering presence in neglected and economically backward North East India. Here are a few insights into our humble beginnings and rapid growth from the North East, and glimpses of how this wonderful land has given back to us – it will help you understand and know us better.
A timeline of our first few years
After our launch in September 2004, it took us just a few months to set up operations in Shillong. We started putting together a world-class design team that drew upon local talent. Here are the important milestones of our first few years of existence, proof that our belief in the North East has given back to us manifold.
We were right to believe in the potency of the North East
For years corporations have resisted setting up shop in North East India. An area marked by unrest, a huge tribal population and high unemployment held little interest for companies looking for quick returns and automatic growth. We are the first global company to give this beautiful area and its people a chance – an opportunity to give one’s best, earn a decent living, to prosper and grow. Our vision in setting up a presence in North East India was a stubborn inclination to prove the possible out of what many thought was impossible. In less than a year, we knew we had done the right thing.
We want the North East to retain its precious ecological balance, and we are contributing by staying green
The beauty of the North East is virgin and precious, and we want to preserve it. We are one of the greenest companies in India, and our small carbon footprint is hard to beat. Our office does not use air conditioning and we have a solar heating arrangement for the winter. Our employees are encouraged to car-pool, while many of them work from home. We are involved in tree planting in Shillong, and try our best to spread the green word every opportunity we get.
The world is flat and Shillong is more accessible than you thought.
Despite being geographically far-flung, Shillong is connected to every part of the world thanks to the Internet.
The world is flat and we knew it from the start. Shillong is just as accessible an outsourcing destination as Bengaluru and Hyderabad; the people here are just as talented. We are the first private limited outsourcing company to set up shop in North East India.
We develop local talent and empower their growth
We are totally committed to our support of the North East, and this means training local people rather than bring talent in from outside the region. Our commitment has helped build a level-headed management team oozing confidence and a professional work culture. Our dedicated staff proves everyday that they perform at global standards. Their talent has made Shillong proud, and raring to tackle newer opportunities.
Our values are aligned with the strong values of the North East
We believe in doing the right things the right way; you won’t catch us cutting corners, or shirking responsibilities. These values come naturally to the people of the North East, and our team is not afraid of putting in good, honest work that shows results. Our company is built on enduring principles, and we like the way we work.
A standard for company culture in North East India
We have introduced a company culture in North East India that encourages our team to push each other to improve skills, habits, attitudes, as well as health. We are more than an outsourcing BPO company. Our work culture and commitment to be the best we can be, is proving to others that corporate life indeed works for the people in the North East.
Our services can be benchmarked to global standards
Our presence in the North East doesn’t mean we are unable to match top quality requirements, or that we are going through a learning curve. We are thoroughly up-to-speed and even pioneering some world-class PowerPoint products. Our goal is to be measured globally on the quality, speed and dependability of our PowerPoint production services.
Our excellence is shown by example and servant leadership
Actions and leading by example speak louder than words. We believe that the right service model and work ethic is best shown by example. Our team understands this, and strives for perfection based on the pictorial posters we have put in place in our Shillong office. One of the values we promote is servant leadership. No one is too big or too small to do a particular job.
Service, the intrinsic value of work helps us look beyond our profits to add value to the community
We believe work is noble. We believe in service to others in the form of work. Our work creates wealth adding value to customers, our families and those around us. It gives us purpose and helps us grow and become better.
We go beyond our call of duty. For instance, here is the cover page of a comic book we created to increase awareness of malaria. Written by Chillibreeze writers, illustrated by Chillibreeze artists, and typeset by the Chillibreeze graphic team, we are totally committed to the things that matter to society.
Our non-profit ventures stem from our desire to add value to the society (proceeds from the sale of this book go back to the malaria cause). A social entrepreneurship website is also on the cards.
We have proved that NE is Now!
North East can no longer be called backward, not after we have proved that it can be just as profitable setting up shop here as in a high-tech outsourcing city like Bengaluru. Deprived of prosperity for the last 20 years while other Indian cities grew with the IT boom, it is now finally time for the world to realize the potential of the North East. By providing professional services to the delight of consultants across the globe Chillibreeze is able to say with confidence that their staff is as reliable, skilled and capable as any team in London, Paris, Bangalore or Seattle.
Chillibreeze has proven that NE is Now. We have paved the way, it’s now your turn!
