Zensar has created clear career paths for its existing and new women associates. To bring back experienced mid-level women workforce after career breaks, the program, ‘Enliven’, was launched. This initiative focuses on identifying women in technology in India who have taken career breaks and are wanting to return to work, providing internship opportunities and onboarding them full time with relevant upskilling avenues.
In America, which is the company’s biggest market, women associates have been hired at manager and senior positions, making it one of the key areas of focus for the HR function.
Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Zensar was formed with the objective to anchor and lead Inclusion practices through a Global D&I Council with representatives from a diverse group of our global workforce. One of the key tenets is to represent Zensar’ s inclusion practices in the industry and create awareness on the importance of having an inclusive work environment. Global D&I Council is guided by an Advisory Board, on initiatives that are of high impact to the society, with a direct business impact on the success of the company. Keeping aware of global standards, knowledge exchange as well as creating D&I champions across the company is one of the key focus areas of the council.
