We are starting the ‘One’ in One97 series this week. Here you will get a glimpse of the one person who is responsible for driving change within One97 Company & its people. Who better than to start with the CEO of Paytm, Harinder Takhar.
Harinder Takhar is a man with a mission. Armed with his weaponry – unflinching passion and a decade of experience in strategy and product management – he is the one with “audacious goals” for Paytm.
His workday starts with a customary “chai” before he goes for his morning ritual of meeting his people. “I love to spend most of my time communicating with my employees, to remove any hindrance that they face,” he smiles, but quickly adds, “ I guess I am here to ease everyone’s job so that we can inch closer to achieving our big dream for Paytm.”
Harinder represents a new league of CEOs who combine the business of e-commerce with the astuteness of sound people management. “My employees are my strength. They are agile, restless and hungry for innovation, and maniacal in a good way,” he cheerily confesses.
“I would like to single out one particular incident that happened sometime back. We all know at 211 degrees, water is hot, and at 212 degrees Fahrenheit it not only boils but also becomes steam (and with steam you can power many things). At Paytm, we were struggling at 211 degrees and were not able to launch the brand-new website, and needed just that extra degree to create ‘magic’. We were so close to being truly excellent and yet far away – then all of a sudden we arrived at the magical 212 degrees and a massive state change happened,” he says proudly.
There is something splendidly candid about Harinder and his style of leadership. In his own words, “ I am not the stereotypical kind, never go for the run-of-the-mill stuff. I may not have grand dreams for myself now, but when I am there, I will have it in my stride.” A determined man, Harinder believes “Paytm is in a stage where everyone is doing much more than they are capable of and there is this positive energy that synergises one and all”.
Talking about synergy, Harinder emphasises the importance and impact of music in the One97 family. “Right from the morning till the end of the day, you can hear music in the background ranging from an Amitabh Bachchan song of the 70s to the latest retro and fusion number.”
In fact, he thinks “music and spontaneous off-the-office activities like river-rafting trips (within the One97 family) enhances productivity and rejuvenates employees in a big way”.
With a sparkle in his eyes, he says, “I am enthused about everything – right from blending my personal space with my office to spending alone time doing nothing. During my free time, I enjoy running to music and outside just to keep my sanity.”
For someone with that top-ranked status, Harinder is humility personified. Having lived in different countries, ‘being adaptive’ comes naturally to him. But, when you ask him what he feels about the One97 family, he says nonchalantly, “ all of us are happy, always challenging the status quo and not fixated with assumptions – this place is definitely not for everyone.”
Of course, Harinder is not just anyone. He’s the one who’s calling the shots and treading on uncharted territory… forever!
