PayPal's India Development Center (IDC) has been ranked among the top 25
best companies to work for in India for the 4th year in a row, by the Great Place
to Work Institute (GPTW). This year, PayPal has been ranked "4th in the IT
industry". In the overall survey that included 21 industry segments, PayPal was
ranked number 17.
Concurrently, the India Development Center has also won two awards in
different categories at the Zinnov Awards & Recognition Program 2012: all
within a week's span.
"At PayPal, we believe that creativity and innovation come from enjoying work.
Each year we bring new dimensions at our work place hoping to make an
environment in which one can contribute and have fun too. We believe in hiring
smart people and empowering them to deliver in an eco-system where

At the Zinnov Awards and Recognition Program 2012,
Anupam Pahuja,
General Manager, PayPal IDC, was recognized in the category: Leader in
"High
Impact Global Roles"
and PayPal IDC
was recognized in the category
'Most
Successful Attrition Management'.
Anupam leads the global talent strategy at PayPal, a global transformation
program that impacts over 3000 people supporting the growth and scalability
of PayPal's technology organization over the next 3-5 years.
He has been instrumental in establishing a new location based strategy for
developing new "Centers of Excellence", moving global domains to align with
the business and talent in the right locations thus enabling technologists to
deliver in an agile business model.
The "'High Impact Global Role" recognition only reiterates the successful
leadership and visionary model that he sets for PayPal in

.
The
Most Successful Attrition Management
award is an industry-wide
award to recognize those MNC R&D centers that have successfully managed
attrition within their organizations, despite the industry average of 17% in the
last year. The assessment criteria apart from the attrition numbers was to look
at the measures taken by organizations to understand their employee's needs
and steps taken to proactively retain them.
Instead of working on a separate attrition management program, PayPal
adopted a differentiated approach of increasing employee delight. "At the very
core is our strong faith in people and the basis of our business has been
trust
,
where employees are truly partners, and learning and expanding our
capabilities and contributions is considered business as usual," says
Ms.
Jayanthi Vaidyanathan, Director, Human Resources, PayPal IDC.
