By welcoming Priya to the Plum team, we aim to cultivate an environment that fuels high-quality growth and instils a strong sense of mission and purpose—delivering the highest quality insurance and healthcare to people,” stated Abhishek Poddar, Cofounder and CEO of Plum. “Her expertise in fostering an empowering and inclusive workplace culture will be invaluable as we continue to grow and innovate.”

As a customer of Plum for the past two years, Priya has witnessed first-hand how Plum’s product has evolved to meet the dynamic needs of employees in organisations. She has been particularly impressed with the human-centered customer service that Plum delivers to its partner organisations.

“This role gives me the opportunity to build on Plum’s ideology and spearhead a function that enables the company to be a place where talent thrives and flourishes,” said Priya. “My vision for Plum is to be the destination for top talent, an organisation that stands for innovation in people practices, where employees feel valued, inspired, and are able to realise their fullest potential.”

Priya is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace where different perspectives are welcomed and every manager is invested in the growth of their team.
