In This Chapter
Ionce heard of an incredibly powerful line in a company’s balance sheet. It said, “The best assets of this company have not been listed in this balance sheet. They are the 3,000 people who work here, and their value is priceless.”
This idea is true all over the world. Your most important assets are your employees, and this concept is especially true for your business as you start up in India. The people you hire make your business successful, and your growth depends on the investments you make in time and resources.
The people of India are special. They’re intelligent, quietly observant, and can be shy and outspoken at the same time. If you figure out how to harness the power of the Indian employee, you can be off and running in your journey toward Indian business success.
In this chapter, I explore the possibilities for your Indian team. I let you know how to assemble and keep that team, and I fill you in on a few important employment issues that help keep your ship running smoothly with a happy, productive crew.
