Leadership Roundtable at Bangalore

A leadership round table was organized in Bangalore on 13th December 2013. The round tables are part of the Foundation’s advocacy to engage the top management of the IT-BPM industry to move towards Responsible Business. As an aggregator, the Foundation plays a vital role by helping companies firm up their agenda on inclusion at the workplace by guiding them and connecting them with inclusivity practitioners.


The round tables serve as a platform for sharing best practices for companies who have inclusive practices and triggers the thought process in companies who are yet to become Inclusive with respect to hiring Persons with Disabilities.


DBOI Global Services Pvt. Ltd, SAP, Goldman Sachs, Mindtree and Mphasis gave a brief overview of the inclusion at their respective organizations. At DBOI Global Services Pvt. Ltd, it is clear business case when it comes to hiring Persons with Disabilities. They work with schools, colleges and NGOs to attract diverse talent pool. They started hiring 3 years ago ;still do job-analysis from retention point of view, promotion and transportation management system. At SAP, hiring persons with disabilities is not Corporate Social Responsibility. It is an exclusive agenda and 1% of their global workforces are Persons with Disabilities. At MphasiS, it is equal opportunity all the way and therefore they do not need a business case for hiring Persons with Disabilities. MphasiS addressed barriers in inclusion through CSR. The point made here was in India only 2% of the Persons with Disabilities get educated and there is a need to make education more accessible for the disabled community.


15 companies participated in this Round Table. The companies that participated were Aditya Birla Minacs Worldwide Ltd, ANZ Operations and Technology Pvt Ltd, Bosch, Capgemini Business Services (India) Ltd, Citrix, Concentrix, E&Y, Flipkart, Intuit, Sonata Software, Tally Solutions, TE Connectivity Global Shared Services India Pvt Ltd, and Wipro Infotech.


The discussions made it only obvious that creating an inclusive ecosystem leads to a natural demand and when a policy is made mandatory; it brings about change.
