TaskUs India Vice President of Operations and Geo Leader Sapna Bhambani was one of the very few women in the Information Technology (IT), Information Technology-enabled Services (ITeS), and business process outsourcing (BPO) industries who were celebrated in the recent Madhya Pradesh Tech Vista 2021 event hosted by the National Association of Software and Services Company (NASSCOM).
Aiming to acknowledge the strong tech capabilities of the ecosystem and strengthen the technical prowess of organizations in the state of Madhya Pradesh, NASSCOM put a spotlight on Bhambani for her revolutionary contributions to the tech industry.
The event last month, which featured thought leaders and industry veterans and attended by more than 1,000 delegates, was considered as one of the efforts of NASSCOM to help the state government of Madhya Pradesh boost the IT industry in the region.
Bhambani dedicated her nearly two decades of experience and expertise to push not just for innovation in the IT and ITeS industries but also for women empowerment.
“I am extremely honored to be acknowledged as an innovation mover in the tech industry in Madhya Pradesh and contribute to central India’s economy,” she said. “But more than anything else, through this recognition, I know I am able to empower all the strong, amazing women who have the perfect balance of business acumen and empathy required in the service industry.”
Known for being an advocate for women empowerment and workplace diversity and inclusion, Bhambani leads TaskUs’s business operations in India and plays a pivotal role in bringing the company’s globally recognized and ridiculously good work culture to the Indian workforce.
“We at TaskUs constantly strive to incorporate our people-first mantra in whatever we do. I believe that setting up sites in emerging markets in India, rather than in overgrown markets, is a clear indicator of being a frontline-first company,” Bhambani said.
She also takes pride in the company being an equal opportunity employer.
“We offer jobs to candidates from different backgrounds and communities. We believe that the more ridiculously diverse the workforce is, the better,” she said. “The company is also committed to hiring the most qualified person regardless of age and gender, among others.”
As a staunch advocate for diversity and inclusion, TaskUs is composed of a good ratio of 60:40 male-to-female employees in India. Moreover, almost 40% of its senior leaders are women, which is significantly higher than India’s industry standard of 9%.
The company also offers programs and initiatives that champion a safe and equal environment for all. One of which is its employee-led Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that provide a safe space for minority or underserved identity groups and ally supporters.
With these efforts, TaskUs has been recognized globally by different industry award-giving bodies. Leading workplace culture and compensation monitoring website, Comparably, honored TaskUs CEO Bryce Maddock as one of the Best CEOs for Women and Best CEOs for Diversity. The company won silver in the International Business Awards in the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion category. TaskUs was also lauded in Campaign Asia’s Women Leading Change Awards as Diverse & Inclusive Workplace.
TaskUs has over 35,600 teammates around the world with offices across India, the U.S., the Philippines, Taiwan, Mexico, Greece, Ireland, and Colombia. The company currently has operations in three locations in India: Indore, Gurugram, and Mohali.
