In today’s episode, we are joined by Amitha Kamath, Human Resources Manager at Observe.AI - an Intelligent Workforce Platform revolutionizing contact centers by using AI.
Prior to joining Observe.AI, Amitha worked as an Executive Assistant for almost a decade. Working with well-known CEOs of the country helped shape her professional persona and look at things from the CEO’s perspective. Her role as an EA also helped her become more strategic.
Amitha started her new journey in the HR field at Observe.AI. She thrives in startups as it gives her plenty of opportunities to grow and work on the firsts of an organization. At Observe.AI, she learned how to build the HR function from scratch.
Of the many cool things Amitha shares, here are our top 3 learnings from her:

Advice to the emerging HR Professionals of today?
Her advice to all the HR leaders is to be creative, bold, and to be able to strategically present their ideas before the management. HR professionals need to upskill themselves to understand the challenges in Human Resource Management (HRM) and be prepared to deal with unforeseen problems. Upskilling equips them to support employees more effectively resulting in a happier and more engaged workforce.
