Capco, the global management and technology consultancy, announces the appointment of Neelam Sharma as Head of Human Resources for its India operations.

Neelam is responsible for HR strategy, organization culture, HR governance, HR transformation through digitalization and automation, India capability building, and creating a HR structure and framework that supports growth, scale and diversity.

With almost 15 years’ experience working in the HR space, Neelam joins Capco from global software company Infor, where she was Bangalore Site HR Head. Prior to that role, she has held HR specialist and generalist positions at Infosys and Kingfisher Airlines, where she gained in-depth knowledge and hands-on understanding of the strategies, operating dynamics and issues impacting human resources within organizations. She holds a Master’s degree in business administration from ICFAI College, and a Bachelor’s degree from SIES College of Commerce and Economics.

Hiri Kowshika, Partner and Head of India, said: “Capco India’s footprint has expanded significantly in the past 18 months so our focus on HR continues to be extremely important. We’ve added new offices and diverse skills and talent in business consulting as well as digital & technology delivery. In addition, ensuring equal opportunity for all our staff is a huge priority for Capco, and we are continuing to ramp up our focus on diversity and inclusion initiatives, particularly with respect to gender diversity. Neelam’s experience and expertise will be invaluable as we implement more initiatives to help our employees reach their full potential in their careers at Capco.

Neelam Sharma said: “I am excited to be part of the Capco India family. This is an excellent opportunity to build upon all the great work that has already done around inclusion, education, training and diversity as part of the company’s ‘Be Yourself At Work’ culture. As consultants, we are helping the financial industry transition to new working paradigms and establish an effective workforce for the future. That requires having employees who are flexible, self-motivated and independent thinkers.  I will be very focused on ensuring that our people can bring those qualities to the business-critical work they do for our clients.”
