Careers at Genpact
Genpact’s mission is to reimagine business in order to generate impact for enterprises.
In 1997 Pramod Bhasin launched a business unit within General Electric called GE Capital International Services (GECIS). Its purpose was to deliver business process services to GE’s various divisions in order to create efficiencies. Influenced by GE’s extensive adoption of Six Sigma and Lean Management, the company applied these principles to the outsourcing and IT services it ran.
Over the course of eight years, GECIS managed a wide variety of processes across GE’s manufacturing and financial services businesses. However, it eventually decided to broaden its audience, and in 2005 it became an independent firm to serve customers outside of GE. It changed its name to Genpact, reflecting its goal of “generating global impact". Genpact went public in 2007.
