Happiest Minds Technologies, a next generation Digital Transformation, Infrastructure, Security and Product Engineering Services Company, reported strong results for the fiscal first quarter and announced that the million meals target to Akshaya Patra has been achieved.
At Happiest Minds, each business landmark is called a 'Smilestone', resonating with the company theme of happiness. Each Smilestone is commemorated with acts of giving. Earlier, the company set a goal to contribute a million meals to the midday meal scheme of the Akshaya Patra Foundation before IPO. Happiest Minds has been able to achieve the million meals mark with this Smilestone (7th anniversary celebration) contribution and has now set a goal towards contributing an additional million meals by IPO launch in FY'23.

Special mention goes out to the Product Engineering Services Business Unit for contributing the most cumulatively towards the Smilestones."
Dr. Sharon Andrew-Rajkumar, Director & Happiness Evangelist of Happiest Minds, said, "Our 7th anniversary Smilestone is a good time to reflect on our journey and be proud of what we have created - our technologies and our culture. The Mindfulness initiative of Being Mindful and Doing Mindful, has established Happiest Minds as the first Mindful IT Company in the country and possibly the world. More than half of our teams have participated in Mindfulness training thus far."
