The global role will be different from India for Lipika and to overcome the challenges she is strategizing her thought at a global level which can cater to the requirements of all the countries.
Talking to People Matters, she said, “Understanding the key compensation & benefits aspects of various countries along with managing the talent agenda would be key in my view. The span of the role would be much wider as compared to India or a single country and would involve multiple stakeholders across SE globally.”

Managing talents through both build & buy approach (including talent mobility) with the best of rewards practices & creative solutions, pay equity across all countries in line with our corporate philosophy and strengthening of recognition practices for the global supply chain as a business unit are the three key focus areas for her.
