Amit Garg, Business Analysis Consultant, Ashish Garg, Senior HR Manager, and Varun Dhamija, Senior Operations Manager, all located at Convergys' Atria facility in Gurgaon, and Sharmila Hiranandani, a Project Manager Level II located in Hyderabad, were chosen by Convergys to participate in the program based on their potential to succeed at higher levels of responsibility and performance, as well as their love of learning and commitment to development.

The purpose of the innovative Convergys program is to create a diverse pipeline of leaders by providing a dynamic, high-impact leadership development experience for a diverse group of Top Talent manager-level employees from around the globe and across the company. For the participants, the Convergys Emerging Leaders Program is a powerful catalyst for growth as they gain exposure to the thinking of talented peers from across the company and are challenged to deliberately and choicefully define who they are and who they are becoming, as influential leaders at Convergys.

Amit, Ashish, Varun and Sharmila are part of an elite group of 32 participants who gathered in Convergys' headquarters city for a 5-day seminar. Currently, the emerging leaders are participating in six monthly teleconferences that follow the seminar.

The participants have been encouraged to explore outside their comfort zones, challenge their own assumptions and adopt new habits and practices. All of these practices will bring them closer to who they want to be as leaders at Convergys.

"We are proud to offer innovative leadership development opportunities, such as the Emerging Leaders Program, to our employees," said Sukant Srivastava, Managing Director and Country Manager for Convergys' Customer Management business in India.

"This program in particular gives talented individuals from India the opportunity to meet and learn from their peers from across the company and around the world," added Paresh Shah, General Manager of Convergys' Information Management business in India.
