Mr. Sayeed is a prominent name in the tech world because of his strong leadership and passionate personality. His entrepreneurial journey began right after he finished his higher studies. Since then, he has spent more than 25 years in the industry.

FROM TECH TO BUSINESS
Mr. Sayeed has always been a technophile. Therefore, he pursued an MCA from the Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering, Mysore, Karnataka. While in college, he connected with Girish Rowjee, another student who was doing engineering at the same college.
Their dreams matched, and they decided to start an organisation of their own in the year 1994. Mr. Sayeed completed his final year project in the company he co-founded. Thus, Greytip Software is where Mr. Sayeed began his career. And looking at the success chart of the organisation, it is not incorrect to say that his decision was perfect.
Today, as Co-founder and Chief Technology Ofiicer of Greytip Software, Mr. Sayeed focuses on improving greytHR, their HR tech offering. He also oversees other aspects of product development, including requirements engineering, usability, programming, and quality. Other departments such as R&D, innovation labs, and product development also come under his leadership.
SETTING INNOVATIVE STANDARDS
Whatever role he takes, Mr. Sayeed strives for perfection and leaves no stone unturned to produce the best results. He wants to fuel SME growth via better people practices, superior employee experience, better employer branding, and overall productivity of the entire organisation.
For this, he has worked on creating a resource library where the customers can learn more about effective HR practices. Not just this, his company also has a vibrant community and hosts webinars with experts to spread awareness and learning.
During Covid too, he did not stop his initiatives. Under the leadership of Mr. Sayeed, the organisation tailored its employee policies to help them work seamlessly from home. Moreover, Mr. Sayeed introduced apps to provide mental wellness counseling to help their employees cope with stress and tension associated with the pandemic.
