Working Out Solutions - Aruna Jayanthi

G. Seetharaman | Print Edition: Oct 14, 2012

Aruna Jayanthi, 49, has a gruelling schedule. The India CEO of the Paris-based IT services company Capgemini reaches home every day by 7.30 pm and gets back to work at 10 pm, answering e-mails and phone calls till half past midnight.

Biggest Challenge

Getting every individual in Capgemini to think about and work on the organisation's goals.

"Most of my customers are outside India, so I have to do that," she says. Jayanthi, who joined Capgemini in 2000, is now leading the company on an ambitious growth path in India. The company increased its India headcount by 15 per cent last year to 38,000 currently and is now aiming at a workforce of 70,000 in three years. It has also increased its footprint in newer areas such as mobility services, which allow employees of its clients to work away from office and is among the fastestgrowing segments for Capgemini.
