Saravanan Sakthivel – or Sara for short – is based in India. Referential is the first company he’s been with in which he works entirely remotely. Although he’s in the eastern hemisphere, he never feels too far away from the rest of the team because everyone is good about connecting with him via Skype and there’s overlap in working hours with other teammates’ time zones. Sara has over five years of working with customer advocacy programs and has been a full-time consultant with Referential for more than a year. His favorite part of the job for clients is recruiting new customers into their programs. He enjoys being able to identify and leverage clients’ happiest customers, and then help them share their success with the rest of the business community.
When he’s not working, Sara spends times with his family, which includes his wife and 3-years old son. They like to watch television together to relax. They recently had a vacation in England visiting family and while there, Sara got to spend a day sightseeing with his Referential colleague, Lynn.
Sara describes Referential’s culture as being strong and friendly. He loves working alongside the rest of the team; it was the work culture that attracted him to join the company in the first place. Sara plans to keep on learning and moving to the next level in consultancy with Referential. He always gives a hundred percent of effort in fulfilling the goals and targets that he’s tasked with.
