Amarpreet is like the girl next door. Though she is away from all the limelight she is hell-bent and utterly dedicated towards her work that revolves around empowering women. She had to start from the very basic level to understand what women lack and their areas of concern. Her journey from being a Mom to a Mompreneur was one of struggle in a society where women are always considered as housewives and mocked for their intellectual capabilities

Having a total of 13 years professional experience, Amarpreet is certified in Total Rewards by Aon Hewitt and is a certified MBTI practitioner. An alumnus of Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, Amarpreet is founder and Partner – Performance & Culture, Diversity and Inclusion HRhelpdesk.in. She founded hrhelpdesk.in the year 2010. It works on a unique concept of supporting women professionals who choose to pursue career opportunities by working from home. Over the years, Amarpreet has been involved in consulting Indian, Japanese and American clients in building, stabilizing and efficiently running the people agenda in their companies.

With her expertise in the area of Human Resources, her notable projects are in the area of compensation benchmarking including locational feasibility exercises and helping organizations design their compensation philosophy. She has also been involved in designing, developing and benchmarking people policies for new and existing businesses. She has been supporting a US based MNC for over 3 years.

With a desire to give something back to society, Amarpreet has worked extensively in the area of prevention of sexual harassment at work places. Recently, she conducted a survey from 24th December 2016 to 5th February 2017 which brought in a total of 3232 responses from women working in various segments in India. The purpose of the survey was to find out why women still chose to remain silent in spite of what they struggle with.

According to her, this report is not a mere data, but a strong way of putting across the challenges, fears, apprehensions, hopes, ambitions and dreams women have with respect to their careers. To some it is financial independence, to others it is passion. Others perceive it to be a way of earning their livelihood while others wish to support their respective families by sharing the financial burden. Women, managing homes and careers, wish to prove that they are equally effective in bringing value to the table when it comes to contributing towards organizational objectives and willingly withstand all the hurdles. All they need in return is a congenial work environment which allows them to be able to perform, to be respected and to be treated above all prejudices. This report was also covered in Hindustan Times, a national newspaper.

Amarpreet strongly believes women should speak up for their rights. She also believes that women don’t have to prove themselves to others but definitely need to restrain others from taking them for granted. She says, ”Lead, as an example, in whichever space you are, stand up for yourself and for others who require that strength to raise their voice against all odds.”
