Hyderabad: With a view to tap the potential of those women professionals, who seek to restart their career after a gap, Mahindra Satyam, brand identity of Satyam Computers, has launched a recruitment initiative, named- 'Starting Over'.

Mahindra Satyam today said it is stepping up efforts to attract the talent across Asia-Pacific and India, two of its fastest growing markets.

"'Starting Over', a lateral recruiting initiative taps into a highly talented pool of mid-career women, seeking to restart their careers at Mahindra Satyam after having taken a break for personal reasons," Mahindra Satyam said in a statement.

"Women make a significant part of the technology workforce today and 'Starting Over' is novel way of honing that talent base effectively. 'Starting Over' nurtures the talent right from the initial application stage and ensures opportunities to all candidates by offering three employment avenues: internship and part time or full time employment," said Suresh Samudrala, Head HR, Asia Pacific, and Mahindra Satyam, said.

He added, "This way, we ensure that all the candidates are optimally employed."

According to Madhavi Lakkaraju, who has been re-employed by the company as a part of this initiative, Msat is the first company that is offering a chance to start careers all over again.

Another innovative talent development goal that the Indian IT major has achieved is more than 55 per cent localisation of its employee base in every country outside India that the company operates in.

The company's Singapore-based regional headquarter has tied up with the island country's premiere university, National University of Singapore , and other prominent universities to recruit the would-be engineering graduates.

"The response from NUS has been overwhelming and we are very impressed with the calibre of applicants. We have successfully implemented this in many other countries including the neighboring Malaysia and it has worked very well", said Samudrala.

Meanwhile Mahindra Satyam, today announced the establishment of a Center of Excellence for testing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The center will provide support for global testing for MasterCard business applications, as well as application development in Java and Business Intelligence.
