The Government of Bhutan would also facilitate Genpact in setting up a ‘state of the art’ operations centre in the Bhutanese capital of Thimphu in 2011, Bhasin told reporters.
Genpact would recruit candidates for its operation centres in India and work closely with the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources, Department of Information Technology and Royal University of Bhutan to provide specific training on how to handle transactional work pertaining to a range business processes across industries including voice, finance and accounting and IT services.
A ‘Train the Trainer’ programme would also be introduced to help in creating a pipeline of trainers in Bhutan who can in turn impart the programmes to local candidates.
