Percept ICE, a company of Percept Limited, managed and executed the Birla Sun Life Insurance (BSLI) Arjun Awards 2015. The award function was held at the Sahara Star hotel in Mumbai on 14 August, 2015.
The Arjun Awards program was a first not only for BSLI but also across the Life Insurance industry. An innovative initiative, the Arjun Awards was designed to extend an opportunity to every employee to contribute towards achieving the vision of Customer Trust Surplus.
Invitees to the BSLI Arjun Awards 2015 Day Conference were welcomed in traditional Maharashtrian style with Dhol, Tutari and Lazim Players. The Conference was hosted by popular anchor A K Rahman. The event kick started with a grand “Shivaji” act by Punit Pathak’s dance troupe. It was then followed by the 1st set of Awards. The famous story telling troupe “Illuminati” paid tribute to A.P.J. Abdul Kalam through a classic UV act leading into the 2nd set of awards. The “Mann Ki Baat” segment which was specially designed to interview 8 Leadership Team members was followed by the final round of day awards. The conference wrapped up with an inspirational session by “Deepa Malik”- a Paraplegic Indian athlete who has won numerous accolades for her participation in various Adventure Sports.
The day conference was followed by a gala evening of fun and celebrations. As the overall theme of the event was ‘Arjun’, all the pre-function activities were designed in accordance with this theme by Percept ICE. The invitees enjoyed the games organized including Fish Eye Dartboard and Archery. A royal throne and an elegant palace set made for a popular photo-op corner.
The Gala Evening function was hosted by the famous TV personality “Ragini Khanna” along with A K Rahman.
