Bestowed with the moniker 'Takeover Tycoon' for the way he grew the RPG Group through multiple mergers & acquisitions, Dr Rama Prasad Goenka was a larger than life personality and a philanthropist. He acquired various businesses, including CEAT, KEC, Zensar, RPG Life Sciences, and Harrisons Malayalam. Rama Babu, as he was affectionately called, worked relentlessly towards the betterment of society and laid great emphasis on imparting happiness to almost everyone he would meet. The RPG Happiness Day celebrations are an ode to his life and his contribution to business and society at large, all of which helped lay the foundation and ethos of the RPG Group we see today.
The 2022 edition of this much-awaited annual event was held virtually for the second year in a row. The celebrations included a unique talent show for RPGians and their families, making the occasion special and engaging for all.
Season 2 of our talent competition received over 120 entries across four categories — singing, dancing, stand-up comedy and drama. The audience voted for the top 4 performers from 7 finalists who performed at the event.
The highlight of these celebrations are undoubtedly the Top Gear Awards, which honour and recognise those employees who have made a significant contribution towards realising the Group’s vision by consistently exceeding expectations through the year.
Each year, the unit or project that sets benchmarks in EHS across the Group is felicitated. The winner of this year’s Best EHS Complying Unit is Raychem RPG – Halol Plant
Our special event took a final bow with an enthralling performance by Melissa Srivastava, the singer for the evening, who tapped into old classics and new melodies, and sung them in contemporary notes – a shift that only few can achieve seamlessly. It was an apt ‘happy note’ to conclude the event.
