Culture at SGA

At SGA, a Great Place to Work® (GPTW) certified company, our people are our most enduring strength, shaping and driving growth and success together. With accountability, ownership, and spiritedness at the core of who we are, SGA empowers its people to become leaders and challenge the status quo, every time.

Our diverse team of 1100 young and driven professionals come from across 5 countries, contributing their creative energy and ambition to sustaining our promise of excellence. We celebrate our collective wins, big and small, together as a company and firmly set our eyes on the future.

SGA’s vibrant culture promotes growth and learning opportunities for its people through substantial and significant job roles with client exposure, making it a great launchpad for a successful career. At SGA, we promote open, transparent communication across hierarchies, a positive and inspired work environment, and performance-based promotions and growth.

SGA’s culture emerges from its values that we take pride in:

Leadership – At SGA, we believe leadership is empowerment. There is a subtle, positive shift of power, an act of unfettering, when a leader makes space for their team to grow. Leadership is enablement, the ability to facilitate growth, enterprise, and creativity; foster seamless collaboration and co-creation, resulting in a flow of ease, joy, and grace. That’s leadership for us, a fundamental value, a core philosophy.

Accountability – We believe in holding ourselves to the highest standards of trust, excellence, and dependability. Accountability in owning our work and being proud of it. Accountability in showing up and being determined to accomplish the work that we have set out to do. Accountability, in taking personal responsibility for our work. Accountability in forging trust and transparency within our teams; being able to count on others and be dependable ourselves. That’s how accountability shapes our ‘flow’, shaping the ease, joy, and grace that is the bedrock of our company culture.

Collaborating and Co-creating – We strongly believe in building enduring value for ourselves, our clients, and our society. We believe that our pursuit for excellence is enabled manifold when we work together with our leaders and team members – openly communicating our goals and accountabilities – ideating, sharing, and collaborating. To excel for us is to excel together – co-creating all the way is the SGA way.

Fun – Fun at work is when we are accountable for what we do, when we are passionate and motivated about our work, exchanging perspectives, and co-creating enduring value for our clients and ourselves. We believe that having fun forges openness and free flow among teams, building a culture of wholesome purposefulness and collaboration. To love what we do and have fun while we're doing it – that's the SGA way.

At SGA, success for us is embracing our work governed by our values, without the fear of failure and with a resolved focus on operational excellence. Excellence is the powerful amalgam of empathetic leadership, unswerving accountability, effortless co-creation, and uninhibited fun. Excellence is at the core of our culture – the flow of ease, joy, and grace for one and all.

Learning & Development

Learning & Development is a continuous process of improving skills, gaining knowledge, clarifying concepts, and changing attitudes through structured and planned education by which the productivity and performance of the employees can be enhanced. At SGA, our Learning & Development cell ‘Gurukul’ emphasizes on the improvement of the performance of individuals through a proper system that focuses on the skills, methodology, and content required to achieve an objective. Efficient training of employees helps in their skill and knowledge development, which eventually helps us to improve our productivity, leading to overall growth. Our training cell resolves to create an impact that lasts beyond the end of the training.

At SGA, we empower growth, whether lateral or linear. Our learning & development initiatives are designed for offering growth and development opportunities to our people for building rewarding and fulfilling careers at SGA. We focus on our employees’ transformational growth through professional training and personal development initiatives.

SGA emphasizes on transformation through theoretical and experiential learning, some through trainer-led sessions and others through on-the-job learning. Along with a marked focus on knowledge enhancement, our L&D cell emphasizes equally on developing the core technical, functional, and soft skills of our talent force. We have a pool of in-house trainers who deliver training on various topics across technical, functional, and behavioral categories. External training sessions from industry experts are organized throughout the year.

In our resolve to have more and more SGAites scale up their knowledge and skills, there is a unique feature of the L&D policy that provides full reimbursement of the certification that any employee completes.

At SGA, we ensure a rigorous focus on compliance framework training. Since April 2020, 50 learning sessions with 650 participants have been covered, achieving 2000 training hours.
