Meet Kamal Kant, Zonal Manager at Roche Diagnostics India
I belong to a very small town in Haryana located at Rajasthan border named Loharu, with a very less illiteracy percentage. I always had a dream to be recognized amongst people. I came to Delhi and started my career and always strive for the recognition. I have worked in four companies but always I felt that something is missing.
In spite of hard work and putting all my effort day and night, I was not getting the recognition I was looking for. Then I joined Roche and jus after one year I felt that what I am doing is being recognized, I am being noticed and people know me. I always believe in work with identity.
Where did you study?

What can you tell us about the location you work at?
Currently my location of work is Chandigarh, and I need to travel surrounding four states, i.e. Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab and Haryana and as traveling is my hobby, I love doing that as part of my job.

I can proudly say that all my customers have very good faith in me and have freedom to share with me everything they feel about me and my company.
