Anand Bhinde, Managing Consultant
WHY DID YOU JOIN HELIXR?

I joined Helixr at a time of great uncertainty in the SAP Consulting market. Helixr’s founders understood the hour of need and provided an opportunity to step into the new world confidently, with a shared passion and vision to grow together. Also, the Helixr team has forged a great rapport and relationship with client securing confidence to deliver at the highest quality in the most trying circumstances.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

Helixr was started by a bunch of energetic and enthusiastic people with whom I have worked with in the past. The work culture here is very friendly, helpful and encouraging. We’re a small close knit family where every one is committed to making this company a great success and taking it to greater heights in the future.

WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

Helixr has a very good mix of people from different functional backgrounds who have some fantastic experience which endeavours you to perform better and better each time.

Neil Alderson, Delivery Manager
WHY DID YOU JOIN HELIXR?

Their vision. To create a new style of consulting company that puts social conscience and quality at the top of their priorities believing if you are trustworthy and deliver quality, you will be profitable and grow through your reputation. It is great to work for a company that shares my ethic’s and views, to attend meetings and share ideas that are often dismissed in other organisations as “not cost effective” or be asked “what is in it for us?”. At HELIXR the question is “how does this benefit our customers, employee’s or society?

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

Once you are in the organisation you see that it has a family feel to it – A Whatsapp group used to share work and social information alike. Meaning that despite joining during the lockdown and not getting to meet most of the team, I still feel involved and part of the wider group. This also shows a willingness to move with the times and look at more modern ways of communication.

WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

The opportunity to get involved in all aspects of helping the company develop and grow, to help shape the company and implement ideas and lessons learnt from previous companies and experiences. I’m excited by what we are trying to achieve and as we continue to move forward and grow, I look forward to the challenge of keeping our ethics in place.

Anjna Patel, Operations Director
WHY DID YOU JOIN HELIXR?

I joined Helixr after a year’s sabbatical to take care of my father. Having worked previously with one of the Founders, I knew that Helixr would be underpinned by a person-centred ethos, driven not by making large profits but by making a difference to clients, employees and society.

I was welcomed by the other Founders with a sense of trust and respect for what I could offer, despite my career break. Unlike other similar organisations, the team comes first. There is a true sense of authenticity and empathy amongst the founding directors.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

As Operations Director, I am involved in not only shaping the vision and strategic objectives but also responsible for driving the execution. I thrive on seeing concept becoming reality. Having the opportunity to do this gives a purpose to my working hours.

Additionally, the strong camaraderie across the team and whatsapp banter makes it a fun environment, especially during the current restrictions whereby we cannot meet face to face as a team.

WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

Aside from the opportunity to shape and execute the company’s vision, I am excited about the higher purpose for which Helixr ultimately exists – to provide a platform for others to flourish. Everyone has a voice here and the opportunity to pursue their interests and passions. Building a conscious workplace is one of mine. I feel lucky and grateful to be leading the efforts to shape and execute our higher purpose.

Eduardo Rodrigues, Senior Consultant
WHY DID YOU JOIN HELIXR?

I joined Helixr because I knew the Founders and many of the Consultants and they are great!! Fun, Intelligent people with fantastic work ethos and commitment. We have a very experienced team of SAP and process consultants. Our aim is to be a trustworthy and flexible partner and we are bringing all this in a package that will enable clients to implement SAP S4/Hana effectively and successfully.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

I enjoy being part of a team, the friendly atmosphere that we are building in the company and the streamline management structure. But perhaps what I enjoy most is the freedom to have time to dedicate to parts of the work that I enjoy most. In my case I love client facing roles and the early stage of solution design.

WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WORKING AT HELIXR?

The most rewarding is the trust and support I receive from my team, But also the feeling that the company understand and values the effort I put in at work.
