Recognition reaffirms Genpact's ongoing commitment to global workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion
NEW DELHI, Oct. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Genpact (NYSE: G), a global professional services firm focused on delivering outcomes that transform businesses, today announced that it has been included in Avtar and Seramount's 100 Best Companies for Women in India (BCWI) list, and is also recognized as an Exemplar of Inclusion in the Most Inclusive Companies Index (MICI) for the second consecutive year.
Avtar and Seramount evaluated over 350 companies, spanning every major industry, geographical location, and line of business, on their talent practices, programs, and policies to ensure gender inclusion and advancement of diverse employees.
"At Genpact, we know that diverse teams outperform homogenous ones. We amplify our potential and support innovation when we bring people with differences in thought, skills, experiences, and backgrounds together around a common goal," said Heather White, Chief Legal Officer, Corporate Secretary and Head of Corporate Social Responsibility and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Genpact. "We are honored to be recognized by Avtar and Seramount and are committed to building an inclusive workplace and a diverse global workforce."
Over the years, Genpact has made steady progress toward its goal of becoming a gender-balanced organization across all levels. Women now represent 42% of the company's global workforce, 50% of board of directors, and 47% of Genpact's leadership council.
"Gender diversity among the 100 Best Companies continues to increase. The average representation of women (overall) is an inspiring 36.9% this year in 2023 up from 25% in 2016, at the time of the launch of the study. At the Top 10 companies, average women's representation reported in 2023, is at 41.7%. At this current rate, a 50:50 gender balance at Best Companies will be a reality by 2030 – a much sooner time frame given the post-pandemic repercussions", said Dr Saundarya Rajesh, Founder-President, Avtar Group. "While we celebrate the progress made, we must also be vigilant of the challenges that still persist. Inclusion is an ongoing commitment; constantly innovating, focusing on growth aspirations of diversity talent, and curating a culture of care-hood must be part of leadership priorities, always! Measuring and monitoring success metrices associated with these initiatives, non-negotiable."
Genpact's inclusion in these lists reflects the company's deep-rooted commitment to providing equal opportunity for all, irrespective of gender, age, ethnicity, cultural background, race, disability, or sexual orientation, which is evidenced through its broad range of programs and initiatives designed to attract, retain, and support talent at every stage of their career.
"Corporations on the Most Inclusive Companies in India list remain committed to creating inclusive workplace cultures for their employees," said Subha V. Barry, President, Seramount. "We are proud to recognize their progress in measuring the effectiveness of their DEI programs, while taking the steps necessary to identify opportunities for growth and improvement."
