What would you want to get trained on?: Deepa Kapoor
Our world class training program is amongst the biggest and most significant non-cash component that helps us attract, retain and engage people.
We invest in our people to develop the right skills for them to be able to do the required job. We provide different types and levels of soft skills and professional skills trainings wherein we have alliance with some top institutes like Harvard and other universities for specialized domain skills trainings like executive or part time MBAs, CA, Project Management programs, etc. We also have tie-ups with institutes like IIMs for management certification programs which are well recognized in the industry.
What really differentiates us from others is that there is a lot of flexibility that we give to our employees with regards to the area they want to get trained in, based on their own interests. Last year, Genpact trained more than 15000 employees across soft skills, professional skills and domain programs, and we had > 8000 employees who were enrolled in different certification and domain programs under Edu@work.
We have leadership development programs for all levels within the organization. The programs offered have become a huge aspiration within Genpact and these programs have the credibility of having churned out successful batches of leaders year after year.
Today, leadership and development goes much beyond being just a training intervention and is a strategic part of developing talent and creating the talent pool for key succession planning in the organization. At the end of the day, any business wants to have top talent in their midst and the programs are slowly and steadily becoming the means to do just that.
