"We are continuously working at building capabilities and driving vitality at work," she says. To foster work-life balance at HUL, Nair has introduced flexi-hours.

No employee is allowed to remain in office beyond 8 p.m. One day in a week, all employees can work from home. While a student at XLRI, Jamshedpur, Nair did her summer internship with HUL and was immediately attracted to the company. She joined it on passing out and has stayed with it for 19 years. Extremely fit, she is also a marathon runner and keyboard player in her spare time.
