Life at FocusU
Regardless of what role one performs here, the expectation is to be a team player and to help others succeed. If personal growth is your only motivator, this place will not resonate. A few other themes here are: No micromanagement. Being self-driven. Being extremely hungry to keep learning. To laugh easily and much. To live CHOPS every single moment.

Our team today serves a wide spread of clients – most of whom are blue chip companies. We create impact with these organizations by being their learning partners, engagement partners, consultants and advisors. You will work with client teams all across the country and also across some global geographies. You will engage on a wide spectrum of customer challenges.
How you will grow
At FocusU, learning never stops. On an average, we add two new offerings to our portfolio every month. Alongside, we also partner with some of the best learning organizations across the world. All this, along with exposure to the learning and business challenges of some of the world’s leading companies, ensures a constant opportunity for personalised growth.
We're looking for people who believe in
Rancho (From 3 Idiots)
Old FocusU Saying
We are big believers in the Danish “Hygge.” For us it is about being with people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe and shielded to let our guards down. It is about enjoying a cup of tea in silence with friends, while it rains outside.
We are big believers that books are the cheapest & easiest way for individuals and hence the organization to grow. So, anyone wanting to buy ANY book to learn can just go ahead without any prior approvals. All we ask is – do share the knowledge!
A large part of life in FocusU is about travel. We believe that travel is the best teacher. Our work takes us to all parts and corners of the country (and sometimes outside too) where workshops are done. Truly as it is said, “All those who wander are not lost.”
Moments we cherish
