Hello to our Employee of the Month – Narayan Murthy. Narayan is a Process Owner at an MNC and has been working in his current organization for 11 years now. As an employee with cerebral palsy, we naturally had a few questions for him. Brimming with energy and a never-fading smile Narayan answers all our questions. Hope that you enjoy reading/hearing what he has to say..

So, hello to our Employee of the Month – Narayan Murthy

The aim of this section is to know a little more of each other in the community. *If you are an employee with disability and would want to share a few words about yourself with our readers, please write to us at

Hi Narayan. Are you from Bangalore?

Hello! Yes, I am from Bangalore.

What made you stay in Bangalore and What do you like about Bangalore?

I am born and bought up in Bangalore. I just love the weather here. I am here from my childhood and can’t think of any other place

Talking about work, what do you do here in Bangalore?

I work for Target as an Imaging Artist. 

Do you like your job? What is it that you like most about your work?

Yes, I love my job. What I like most about my work is the culture of the company.

Is there anything you would like to say/share with other Persons with Disability who are looking for work or are already working?

First thing, believe in yourself. Have a ‘can do’ attitude and give your 100% efforts. Everything else will fall in place.

As an employee with Disability, what is it that you like about your work?

The people around me, most importantly my team, they treat me as they would treat any other. It makes me feel good – to be one among all. That’s what I always wished for.

How has your organization, peers, colleagues been helpful or not so helpful?

The company believes that I can deliver what it needs. It has given me everything I need – else, I wouldn’t have stayed here for 11 years J My colleagues have always been there for me – whenever I needed any help.

How do you see yourself in the future – Goals, aspirations?

I joined the organization as a contractor, then as a full-time employee. Now I am Process owner. I want to handle many more people and scale up to the next level as a manager and then achieve much higher levels.
