I have been blessed to be with dunia for 6 exciting and challenging years. Tremendous exposure and learning every day. A company with inspiring and encouraging mentors, from my direct supervisor up to the CEO. Looking for more years of success with dunia!
Ishrath Mehar Banu – Collections Officer; with dunia since May 2011
Dunia is the place where I could create the right equilibrium between work and life. I feel like my work here is always recognized; the atmosphere in Dunia is cooperative & supportive, which I think is rare in today’s work place. I got promoted in real life when I became a mother last year and I could still manage to work with the same passion and zeal. Most importantly, it brings a smile to my face when I come to work on a daily basis and that is mainly attributed towards the people around me.
