The addition of new Executive Director will take the size of the Board to ten members with three Executive Directors and seven Independent Board Members.
COVID made FY 22 challenging even though it was a milestone year; TeamLease started twenty years ago and listed six years ago. We used the year to reflect about our principles, goals, strategy and structure for the next twenty years. Essentially, an exercise to convert future hindsight into current foresight in our mission of Putting India to Work. The first outcome of this exercise was a Board revamp last year. In extension to that, effective today Ms. Rituparna Chakraborty will be joining the Board as an Executive Director.
Commenting on the new appointment, Mr. Ashok Reddy, Managing Director of TeamLease Services Limited said, "TeamLease has a unique opportunity to innovate the intersection of education, employment and employability by breaking down current barriers between demand and supply. As a co-Founder Rituparna has built TeamLease's largest business; staffing has over Rs 5000+ crore in revenue. Given her strong understanding of the employability and employment intersection and abilities in scaling, sales, and policy advocacy, Rituparna can be a great asset to the Board of TeamLease."
