Testimonial by Harsh
“Though I lost my leg in an accident at the age of 5, I never lost hope. I went on from exceling in multiple sports during my school days to achieving back-to-back promotions over a span of 12 months.

I joined HDFC Life as a front line sales employee in 2014. Initially, I was apprehensive about the challenges a field job would throw at me but it has been really wonderful and enriching working with HDFC Life. Here I am working as a Cluster Sales Manager and am thankful to my company and my managers for their support throughout this beautiful journey.”

I was looking for a good job. So during this time got placed in HDFCLIFE. It was HDFCLIFE that helped me by providing such a great platform to restart my career in the same field.

Helped me boost my self-confidence and faith in oneself. It has helped me evolve positively as an individual.
Thank You HDFC Life”

“I would like to share my wonderful experience with HDFC Life. The Maternity Transition Program of HDFC Life has supported me in my beautiful journey to motherhood - throughout my pregnancy to my early motherhood days till I returned back to work. Once I resumed work, a survey was also conducted to gauge my comfort levels. I'm blessed to be part of an organisation that has thoughtful leaders and a supportive team that make sure that I can be a mother first and also parent during the work-from-home scenario in this pandemic. At HDFC Life, I feel like I belong and that my work is valued and celebrated each day.”
