All of us, as an individual, as a team and as a company have been able contribute by helping build a healthy, strong company that is based on solid foundation, which will drive us through good and bad times.
When I joined Chillibreeze on 3rd of March 2014 (8:55 AM Monday!), with just a basic knowledge of computer, my intention was only to get a job. But as days passed, my perspective towards Chillibreeze changed. It has really transformed my life. I have learnt a lot and built my confidence, as the company provides us with opportunities and teaches us values and principles.
Thank you Chillibreeze for everything 🙂

Chillibreeze have given me the opportunity to understand work culture and values. Most importantly the fact that we are working to make a change in our region is exciting. I owe it to Chillibreeze for this privilege. Having an amazing group of friends to work with is an enjoyable experience. Thank you, Chillibreeze.
One habit that I have picked up since I joined Chillibreeze is waking up early and being punctual. I had a very bad habit of waking up late and not being on time even my friends would complain! Earlier I’m like its ok, no big deal! But since becoming part of Chillibreeze I began to value time. At first it was hard for me to drag myself out of the bed early in the morning but now I’m used to waking up early and coming to work before 9 AM and it’s all because of Chillibreeze. Since I joined Chillibreeze I have never been late since and I would like to thank Sissy Warshong for explaining and demonstrating to me the value of time.
Values exist, whether you recognize them or not. Life can be much easier when you acknowledge your values – and when you make plans and decisions that honor them.
If you value family, but you have to work 70-hour weeks in your job, will you feel internal stress and conflict? And if you don't value competition, and you work in a highly competitive sales environment, are you likely to be satisfied with your job?
In these types of situations, understanding your values can really help. When you know your own values, you can use them to make decisions about how to live your life, and you can answer questions like these:
- What job should I pursue?
- Should I accept this promotion?
- Should I start my own business?
- Should I compromise, or be firm with my position?
- Should I follow tradition, or travel down a new path?
So, take the time to understand the real priorities in your life, and you'll be able to determine the best direction for you and your life goals!
Thanks Badal for being a great team member. I wanted to acknowledge you for the speed with which you have learnt what is to be done and doing it well. The product descriptions are reaching a standard that Zizira is looking for. You have taken very little time to settle into your new role. Your pro activeness and enthusiasm stand out. What you are doing is aligned to our value of Harvesting Unique Talents. Keep learning, improving and adding value, as you are doing now!
In the second half of 2016 I shifted from the Services team to Content Coordination. This was a big change. Soon after that I was given greater responsibilities and a team to work with. It was no less than an uphill task, but thanks to the remarkable team to work with, we started bringing in results. I am so grateful for the opportunity Chillibreeze gave me, to grow as a person.
When I started, I was a person with very low confidence. When I look back, I wonder if I am the same person because it is here that I discovered myself and know my strengths and capabilities. All this would not have been possible without the help, guidance and support of each team members in CB and my family. CB has truly transformed my life.
I realized that CB not only helps me to financially support my family, but also helps me become a mature person.
Before applying for an opening in Chillibreeze, and having read the description of the job, I didn't fancy my chances of being selected. Motivated by the staff stories I read on their website, I went ahead and filled in the Job Application Form and I haven't looked back since.
I had my share of failures and downfalls. But thanks to feedbacks and guidance from the managers and my colleagues, was able to overcome my shortcomings.
Never in my wildest dream did I think I would be working with a company that deals with international customers and, that too, working from Meghalaya, a remote northeast region of India. On top of that, a company which endeavors to make a difference to the society and community. I feel rather privileged to have been given an opportunity to be part of this company.

We all have our ups and downs in life but maintaining a positive outlook is a crucial part of finding inspiration. Our brains are wired to find things we’re looking for – if you’re always cynical or waiting for things to go wrong, then your life will reflect that.
On the other hand, having a positive outlook will bring you joy and provide you with inspiration when you least expect it.
Of course, there are times when it’s difficult to feel cheery or positive – life can be difficult. If you’re having trouble seeing the cup as half full instead of half empty, reading some positive quotes about life can help you snap out of your funk.
"Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it".

What is it like working in Chillibreeze?
Phewww….. Trust me everyone when I say this, Chillibreeze is NOT for everyone. When I first started I there were 6-7 instances when I wanted to quit. It was a lot to handle! Even now I would not say that it is any easier, but I have learned how to juggle stuff :). Ok enough, let’s be serious.
It takes a lot of courage and hard work to be part of a global company like Chillibreeze.
Why courage? I am a girl who was born and brought up in Shillong. The background that I came from is so different. At the beginning my family and friends would always push me for a government job. Having no support from your family and friends can be really difficult. And then there was overtime too, uff… A friend of mine said to me one day that I did it it all for praise and money. I feel sad for them because they don’t understand the value of hard work.
But all in all it pays off. I get to "rub shoulders" with high profile consultants from across the world, which in itself is such a tremendous learning. Our Strategy statement says that we come to the rescue of world's best companies. And being able to do what we are doing for our global customers and being appreciated and able to learn is a tremendous blesssing for all the hard work that we all put in.

Zizira is almost like a different world, with new perceptions, endless learning, and growth. I have learned a lot since I joined the pack in the month of October 2016. I respect and admire everything that I have experienced and appreciate that I am on board for an exciting year ahead.

One of the many important lessons I felt that I've gained through my time last year with Chillibreeze and Zizira is the ability to listen first, assimilate the information and reply with proper understanding.
Consequently, it has made me a more patient person who would rather listen in order to gain more knowledge.
Over time, being in this working environment has brought about changes in my behavior that may seem trivial, but are in fact life changing. One of those is the value of Accountability. At times, I tend to take things and people for granted. But, Chillibreeze has inculcated in me a sense of responsibility, which makes me take ownership of the things I say and do.
Andrew Fancon has already explained Kaizen and I was particularly influenced by "Kaizen is all about big results coming from many small changes accumulated over time. It is important to note that Kaizen is a way of thinking, not a project to complete."
So we need to adopt Kaizen in all spheres of our lives so that we may grow, learn and progress. So let’s start with small improvements. I have already started working on my communications skills and am determined to improve my ability to communicate. No one is perfect but no one is weak either! If we think we can then why not?
I joined as a fresher. I was an average performer. I did not do so well during my probation period and I think they had a hard time deciding whether I should stay or leave. But, my seniors spotted potential in me and trained me. During the Awards and Recognition ceremony in the month of July 2016, I received the award of “RISING STAR”. I wouldn’t be here without making mistakes and someone helping and guiding me. I will continue to improve myself and also help team members along the way.
Knowing what I know now about Chillibreeze and if I had been an outsider, I would suggest my friends to apply for a position at Chillibreeze because it is a professional company with an amazing atmosphere. It allows us to express our ideas and opinions freely and to communicate with others using candor. At Chillibreeze "discrimination" doesn't even exist in their dictionary because all the staff treat each other equally and with respect. Chillibreeze established its own values and principles and by strictly adhering to them I found that they take our lives to a whole new level. The best part about Chillibreeze is that it provides us an environment where we do our work not because it is our job but because we enjoy doing it. Last but not the least, I would also suggest my friends about the delicious dinners Chillibreeze is providing its staff who are working overtime.
