In an attempt to help women restart their career after a break, HSBC Technology has launched a program called Take2.
The Indian technology arm of HSBC inaugurated the latest edition of ‘Take2’, a recruitment program specifically designed to provide opportunities for women who have taken a break from work to restart their career.
The Take2 program invites applications for internship positions in HSBC Technology. The 12-week internship leads to an opportunity to work at the organization.
Last year, in 2017 HSBC welcomed 100 women back to work at their Global Service Centre and Global Finance Operations Centre in India, in the earlier editions of Take2.
Balasubramanian Ganesh, Global CIO for HSBC’s Retail Banking and Wealth Management, and Chairman of HSBC Software Development India shared, “Take2 is part of a multi-pronged approach towards diversity and inclusion at HSBC. Many talented women professionals have had to take a break from work for personal and family reasons. They are eager to return to the workplace, but are unsure of where to start.”
He further shares that the objective of the Take2 program is to encourage women technologists who have taken a sabbatical to get back into the workforce. The program isn’t just about recruitment, but also about providing a smooth transition for these women back into work through a 12-week internship that helps them settle into the workplace.
