  • Conducted research, evaluated and negotiated  with a few vendors that had strong end-to-end HRIS offerings and finalized the best one.
  • Streamlined the recruitment team by conducting several soft skills sessions for them.
  • Identified the need to outsource payroll processing since one person was earlier handling both this process as well as statutory requirements, compliance procedures, etc.
  • Conducted employee engagement activities and empowered team members with more responsibilities, thereby bringing about change.

  • Implemented a new HRIS tool
