Sanju Saha, GM-HR, Aaj Tak quits; joins Star as VP-HR

Sanju Saha, General Manager-HR, Aaj Tak, has put in his papers. Saha has had a two- year stint with Aaj Tak. “I have left Aaj Tak for a role which is more challenging and would enhance my understanding of the media industry,” he said.

Saha will be joining Star as VP-HR, confirmed a senior official in Star, adding that his date of joining and core responsibilities is being worked out. Saha will be reporting to Sr. VP, HR, Sonali Thakkar, the official added.

On his experience at TV Today, Saha said, “Aaj Tak has been a challenging experience for me. I shifted to the media from a financial background and it was certainly a great learning experience.”

Saha said that HR is a very challenging job in the media circuit because of the level of people movement that takes place. “HR plays a critical role because we have to recognise talent and adequately reward them. It’s essential to keep your employees engaged in the job assigned to them. Employment retention is the biggest challenge in media today,” he said.

Prior to Aaj Tak, Saha was working with American Express for four-and-half years. Saha is an XLRI alumnus.
