Everest Group presents the results of its Top GBS Employers study and shares what top GBS employers are doing to set themselves apart. Watch this webinar to learn what factors impact brand perception as a GBS employer, how brand perception varies for GBS talent and technology talent, and what organizations can do to address employee grievances and enhance their overall brand perception among potential employees.

“It's great to be recognized among the world's Top GBS Employers across regions,” said Sindhu Gangadharan, SVP & MD, SAP Labs India, Head, SAP User Enablement. “SAP's innovations for half a million customers are fueled by its talent powerhouse. As a leading product organization that doesn't have a public-facing product, a unique and attractive talent branding strategy is imperative to onboard the best minds and elevate our innovation quotient to help the world run better and improve people’s lives.”

“It is truly a proud moment to be identified as a top GBS employer in India,” said Shweta Mohanty, VP – Head of HR, SAP, India. “We place immense importance on providing best-in-class experiences for our employees, built around empathy. The last two years have reinforced the value of being truly inclusive and focusing on 'moments that matter.' And this includes providing the best candidate experience to all our prospective employees. What differentiates us is that we constantly personalize our practices and processes by consciously using technology for a diverse 12K+ employees in India.”

Key Takeaways:

  • Across all markets assessed (India, the Philippines and Poland), employees place a strong emphasis on compensation, work environment, and career development, and these factors have the most impact on employer brand perception.
  • The influence of work flexibility (e.g., the option to choose one’s working model, work schedule flexibility, etc.) on job satisfaction ratings is increasing across geographies. Diversity & Inclusion, while important, are creating limited impact on the overall employer brand perception of GBS organizations as of now.
  • Both fresh and experienced technology professionals exhibit a strong preference for TMT (technology, media and telecom), HLS (healthcare and life sciences), and BFS (banking and financial services) GBS organizations, mainly driven by a perception of better career opportunities (e.g., robust training programs, opportunities to work on latest IT stacks) in those segments.
  • The workforce employed by Philippines-based GBS organizations reports relatively higher levels of satisfaction across all parameters as compared to their Polish and Indian counterparts.
  • No significant correlation exists between the age and/or size of a GBS organization and its employee satisfaction ratings across geographies.

Everest Group’s analysis spans multiple brand dimensions, including compensation, career progression, senior management, work-life balance, diversity, culture and values. The study also analyzes the performance of each of these GBS organizations in the local talent markets based on the prevailing attrition rates, joiner-exit ratio and the overall employee satisfaction ratings. By design, this analysis is based on publicly available information only, with an intent to capture the perception of prospective employees about top GBS organizations.
