Why do you think The Gurkhas Group has become so successful in this industry?
Prakash Pun, Chairman answers:
“A reason why I think The Gurkhas Group has become this successful is because of our company management. Even though there are many companies doing similar business, we are different because we are not afraid and willing to take risks. During my time as a Gurkha, I knew I wanted to do more. At the regiment we would have full day trainings till the evening hours, whilst most of my colleague rest up for the night, I chose to go outside of the camp to learn more. While I was transferred from ½nd Gurkha Rifle to 10 Gurkha Rifle in 1992 my colleagues created a nickname for me called ‘Briefcase man’ as I often held a briefcase full of notes and other books to study. I was intrigued by entrepreneurship and business management, so I took a chance and worked hard. For the next couple of years till I retired from the Army I continued to do so, even in the Army when we were given opportunity to learn Hotel Management and other means of management. I vividly remember once we were learning inside the hotel and when the lesson finished most of my colleagues went to relax, but I requested my tutor to show me around the hotel so I could learn more. I am really thankful for the time I spent in the Army and the opportunities given to me. Shortly after retiring from the Army I opened a restaurant and that is when my colleagues and my tutor realised what I’ve been doing all these years after training and lessons. I followed my destiny of becoming a business owner and along the way it would be a lie to say I did not have my ups and downs. I truly believe that we are all employees and work for the company, even though I am Chairman of The Gurkhas Group, I often tell my employees I am no different compared to them, I respect and follow the company’s rules and regulation and together we work hard so I am grateful to everyone who has contributed to The Gurkhas Group.”
