EFFECTUAL SERVICES – BS Best Places to Work in 2019
To foster innovation and creativity, intellectual property (IP) must be protected. Creations of the mind, such as names, symbols, new technological processes, etc. can be protected through patents, copyrights and trademarks. In an era of start-ups and unconventional career paths, an awareness of laws that protect intellectual property can go a long way in boosting the economy. The IP industry also plays an important role in keeping public interest in mind, while at the same time enabling organizations to profit from their ideas and innovations.
Effectual Services performs this very task of striking a balance. The organization has grown to become one of the most trusted partners offering IP support solutions to a number of companies. It has helped clients in generating ideas to produce sustainable solutions regarding patents and trademarks. It also offers high level strategic consulting services that helps mitigate risks in the decision making process.

The organization’s mission is to respect all stakeholders and encourage collaboration.

Effectual Services consists of a team of driven, highly experienced employees who perform with excellence. The organization exudes trust, and has encouraged loyalty in its employees, many of whom have been working with the organization since its inception. Employees hold the organization’s mantra, “Client Centricity, Ethics & Integrity, Innovation & Integrity, Ownership, Respect & Collaboration” close to their hearts. A unique feature is the existence of “quality circles” who meet to discuss problems, and brainstorm solutions. The work culture is healthy with a democratic leadership style, where each one is encouraged to express their views and ideas, to grow both professionally and personally. A platform is also given to individuals to blow the whistle, ensuring complete transparency.
A special feature of the organization is its “Team Off Sites”, where people can bond and simultaneously break the monotony of their work life which leads to enhanced productivity. Thus the organization encourages freedom of expression and high levels of engagement in all its activities.
Mr. Amit Aggarwal has 17+ years’ experience, and is focused on creating awareness of the industry in India, especially among students. Venturing into a relatively new industry was a brave risk. Building a team of 175+ analysts from scratch, and encouraging and informing parents and employees about the scope of a new industry has also been challenging. But, with democratic leadership, the organization has overcome every hurdle and has become a trail blazer. Ideas also had to be generated on expediting the training while maintaining employee effectiveness and mentoring students. Ensuring consultancy services are fact driven and result oriented has also added to the value of the company. Thus as a founder, Mr. Aggarwal’s vision and leadership has played a vital role in every decision taken by the organization.
The organization’s vision, “to be the most innovative business partner serving the knowledge economy, by attracting and nurturing the best global talent”, lays down the perfect road map to achieve its goals in the future.
Effectual Services has organized social awareness sessions for employees, conducted drives on the environment and supports underprivileged children. Tie ups with NGO’s and orphanages also help the organization make a positive impact on society.
The organization plans to expand to other locations, especially in Europe, Asia and Australia. It also plans to expand vertically by pairing up with like-minded organizations or investing in new business opportunities. It considers collaborations a significant aspect in expansion. Working with more Fortune 500 companies to help craft IP strategies, and also save SME’s from frivolous litigation by NPE’s is a key concern for the organization.
With utmost dedication and firm belief in the consultancy services they provide, Effectual Services has overcome several challenges and made a lasting impression in the IP industry, and continues to do so.
