I started working at Inspire in December 2022 as a Junior Accountant.My experience at Inspire has been incredibly rewarding. When I first joined, I was unfamiliar with many of the processes and details, but thanks to the support of everyone here, I quickly felt at ease and was able to grow and learn. I now feel much more confident with the processes and tasks at hand, and it has been a fulfilling journey.
As I reflect on my time at Inspire, I realise that I have learned a great deal, and there is still much more to learn. I eagerly look forward to more challenges and opportunities for growth, as well as the positive moments that come with serving our clients.
Seeing the satisfaction on our clients’ faces when their work is completed and their accounts are in order is truly fulfilling. It’s a rewarding feeling to know that our hard work is paying off and making a difference for our clients. I am grateful for the chance to contribute to the team and continue to do my best in serving our clients and achieving success together.
Outside of Inspire
I enjoy spending my weekends outdoors, socialising, and meeting new people. If the weather is nice, I often head to the beach to soak up some sun, take a swim, and even indulge in some sports activities. I used to be a professional cricket player for 4-5 years, and I still have a passion for playing sports in general. Being outdoors and staying active helps me relax and recharge after a busy week of work from Monday to Friday.
I also like to go to the gym to stay fit and maintain my active lifestyle. Resting too much doesn’t suit my nature, as I am always eager to be on the move and make the most out of my free time. That’s just how I am!
How did you get interested in accounting?
During my time in high school, I developed a liking for accounting and numbers, particularly in the field of finance. I also enjoyed playing sports, but accounting was one of the few subjects that truly captivated my interest. I pursued accounting further and began serving clients, which is something I genuinely enjoy. Providing excellent service and offering sound advice to clients gives me a sense of fulfilment. When our clients express satisfaction with our services and provide positive feedback, it feels incredibly rewarding. Similarly, receiving recognition from the team for a job well done serves as motivation to continue striving for excellence. It’s a wonderful feeling to contribute positively to the team and receive feedback that inspires me to do even more.
What is your favourite thing about working at inspire?
One of the things I really appreciate about working at Inspire is the team culture. Unlike my previous experiences in part-time jobs or what I’ve heard from friends about professional workplaces, Inspire fosters a close-knit team environment where everyone is willing to help each other. The team engages in activities like “Thank You” circles on Fridays, which creates a positive atmosphere and boosts team morale. This kind of culture allows me to express myself comfortably as an employee and feel supported in my work. It’s truly heartwarming to receive appreciation from my team members, and it’s equally rewarding to see others being acknowledged for their achievements. This positive dynamic within the team creates a ripple effect of happiness and motivation, and it’s something I truly value about working at Inspire.
What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?
While I may not know the exact impact, I have been actively taking some workload off Gulshan’s plate. My aim is to assist him in focusing on his core responsibilities and deliverables by taking care of tasks that I can handle on my end. This way, he doesn’t have to worry too much about what’s going on with me and can concentrate on his own priorities. It’s not about claiming to have a significant impact, but rather trying to make things easier for him so that he can devote his attention to the tasks at hand.
Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?
Quality Education – I firmly believe that everyone deserves access to education and opportunities to develop, grow, and thrive, regardless of their background. It’s important for individuals to have a chance to better themselves and contribute positively to society.
Gender Equality – Gender equality should prevail in all fields, not just limited to the corporate world. As I mentioned earlier, access to quality education should be available to everyone, regardless of their gender. It’s crucial that everyone, regardless of gender, has equal opportunities and access to resources. Gender should not determine the level of access or opportunities one has in any aspect of life. Equality should be the norm and gender should not be a barrier.
