Even though he is successful, Bismark still follows everything he learned during his days at the ashram. One of his fundamental beliefs is that any human being can excel in the business that they pursue but just need guidance. Because he respects his employees, practices humility and adheres to a simple lifestyle, his employees and the general public admire him.
The corporate philosophy of the QI group is based on Vedic philosophy and is also heavily influenced by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. One of the main goals of the company is development of its employees and empowering them to go beyond their role to be able to give their maximum contribution.
