Q. In an extremely competitive and dynamic technology industry, how do you attract the right talents and offer more value to your employees?
Christina: It is a very competitive market, which makes it important for organizations to find effective ways to engage with the right talents. One of the ways we differentiate ourselves is through offering a high-level candidate experience supported by our pre-hire engagement activities, which includes connecting with candidates through multiple nodal entries and in different ways to ensure that we find people with the right cultural fit.
Another important differentiator for us is that we focus on providing not just jobs but on building careers. We are a firm believer in growing leaders from within. We have employees with long tenures – we provide multiple opportunities for career development. For instance – someone who joins us as a software engineer can explore multiple roles, such as that of business analyst, architect or a project manager, and can choose from the numerous opportunities that we open up for our employees at different stages in their career.
