Bangalore: On December 3rd, Infosys BPO, the business process outsourcing subsidiary of Infosys Technologies, will begin its weeklong celebrations to commemorate The World Disability Day. The Celebrating Diversity Week, a series of internal and external events across Infosys BPO centres in Pune, Jaipur, Gurgaon and Bangalore, seeks to communicate to employees and to the general public Infosys BPO's Equal Opportunity Policy of inclusion and diversity and to invite all to express solidarity for the cause of the differently abled.

This year's theme for celebration will be 'decent work for persons with disabilities'. Celebrations will begin with a 'Signature Campaign' on December 3rd. Signboards will be put up across all of Infosys BPO centres and employees will be invited to sign these to express their support for the cause. Employees will also be handed out blue and yellow ribbons. A poster making competition at select colleges on December 5 will follow this. The winners will win cash prizes of Rs 5000 and Rs 10000. Students across these colleges will be encouraged to speak about the cause in their colleges. A grand celebratory event on Dec 6 will see employees participate and showcase their talents. The celebrations will culminate in a walkathon in Bangalore on December 9. The walkathon will begin from Vidhana Soudha and participants will be addressed by T. V. Mohandas Pai (Chairman, Infosys BPO & Member of the Board and Director (HR, E&R and Administration), Infosys Technologies), Amitabh Chaudhry (CEO and MD, Infosys BPO) and Nandita Gurjar (Group Head, HR, Infosys Technologies).

"At Infosys BPO, we look beyond the surface to identify, nurture and grow talent. We believe that talent exists across all demographics and this has led to the development of our Equal Opportunity Policy. The Diversity Week celebrations have always been very close to our hearts and this year too we’d like to invite all our employees to join in our efforts and express their support for their differently enabled colleagues," said Nandita Gurjar.

Infosys BPO encourages differently enabled persons to apply for roles/positions and supports them with the right tools and environment that in turn helps them to realize their full potential as contributors to society.
