Congratulating the achievement of the ONGC employees, CMD ONGC tweeted, “Filled with pride to know that three more ONGCians have scaled the Everest. Proud of Nirmal, Santosh and Prabhat on this achievement. Kudos!”

The ONGC Everest Expedition is a phenomenal employee engagement initiative taken by ONGC – a world leader in oil and gas Exploration and Production. This is a unique HR initiative of ONGC to instill values of adventure, camaraderie, team spirit and bravado within the organization.

The idea of Mission Everest was borne out of the team’s successful completion of the Everest Base Camp Trek in October 2015. From then on, there has been no looking back. ONGC CMD has then exhorted all team members on their return to target Mt Everest.

The IMF has been instrumental in the success of this expedition by not only providing training to the employees, but also preparing them for all the adverse conditions, under the mentorship of Col H S Chauhan, President IMF.
