Enjoy being a woman!- Kanika Hasrat
By Arti
Diva caught up with Kanika Hasrat to ask her about her work and her life.
1) Could you tell us a bit about your personal background? where you grew up, your family etc..

I come from a defense service officers family. My Dad was in the Indian Air Force and a helicopter pilot. Since he was transferred to many far flung places I grew up across the country - from Jammu, to Shillong, Ooty, Secundrabad, Delhi and many more. We were a family of 4 and are very close to each other.

2) Tell us something about your professional history and how you came to your current job?

The climb to this position has been exciting - I started with Housekeeping, worked my way up to Executive Housekeeper at wildflower Hall, an Oberoi hotel before moving on to Front Office and Director of Rooms.

My last position was General Manager of Trident, Jaipur.

3) What is the most challenging aspect of running the hotel?

The most difficult aspect is finding the time – time to spend with your guests, your team and still having the time to strategies and plan the vision and direction.

4) What are the professionally satisfying moments?

I have thoroughly enjoyed my career and my growth graph but I would like to say that first day in the capacity as a General Manger was a truly memorable moment for me.

5) You also have a kid. How do you strike the work/life balance?

I have a daughter who is 9 years old. I try and switch off from work when at home and play 'mom'. I spend time reading, playing with her or attending to her homework.

6) Do you think women can have it all a successful career and a loving family or do you think women have to make compromises along the way.

Yes, Definitely with support from the family and an organization that respects her work and life balance a woman can work around a healthy balance between work and family.

7) What would your message be to your daughter about being growing up to be a successful woman.

Do what you love and enjoy being a woman.
