TaskUs’ entrance into India is a game-changer for the country’s outsourcing industry
New Delhi ,India October 23, 2019 – TaskUs, the leading tech-enabled business services company delivering customer support, AI operations, and content security to the world’s most innovative companies, is opening its newest location in Indore, India. This is TaskUs’ first office in India and the start of the company’s plan to rapidly expand in the country.
TaskUs’ newest – and most colorful – site will be known as Rangreza, which comes from the Persian word Rangrez, a term used for a person who plays with colors. The theme carries through the incredible design and reflects TaskUs’ mission to impact the industry and create a more vibrant world for employees through its frontline-first culture.
“TaskUs opening in India is a huge step in our journey to building the best tech-enabled business service company in the world,” said CEO Bryce Maddock. “We chose Indore as the site of our first location to bring jobs to where people want to live. Indore has a business-friendly government, amazing infrastructure and has earned the title of the cleanest city in India the past three years in a row. In the past 11 years, TaskUs has organically grown from two crazy kids in Santa Monica, California to over 17,000 ridiculous teammates in the Philippines, United States, Taiwan, Mexico and now India.”
TaskUs has a reputation for offering unrivaled amenities, and Rangreza is no different. The site has extraordinary recreation areas with vibrant color schemes, eye-catching architectural features, places for mindfulness and relaxation, collaborative spaces and fun zones stocked with gaming equipment and kiosks. For employee wellness, TaskUs offers an onsite gym, health clinic, childcare facility, and lactation rooms.
“TaskUs facilities are great examples of how much is invested in elevating our employees’ lives,” said VP of Operations Sapna Bhambani. “India is no stranger to our industry, and we want people to know that our offices aren’t our only differentiator. Our emphasis on employee wellness, competitive pay and benefits and our focus on opportunities for women all set TaskUs apart. Finally, I am very proud of our choice to open our first site where employees want to live versus many of our competitors who congregate in India’s largest and most crowded cities in order to make travel convenient for their foreign executives.”
Sapna has 12+ years of experience in the BPO industry, most of which were in Human Resources leadership positions, contributing to her understanding of the power of people first. TaskUs’ culture, which has its employees at the center of every decision, is what drew Sapna to the company, and what she believes will be key to its success in India.
Rangreza will launch with 500 employees, and TaskUs anticipates growing the Indore site to multiple thousands of employees, while rapidly expanding into locations across India.
