Technology is changing so rapidly, and we can’t hope to keep up unless we commit to becoming lifelong learners. So does the CEO of a 100,000-person company valued at over $4Bn keep constantly learning?

This is a question I posed to Tiger Tyagarajan, CEO of leading professional services company Genpact on the latest episode of the Actionable Futurist® Podcast.

Tiger is one of the industry leaders who pioneered a new global business model and transformed a division of General Electric into Genpact, a global professional services firm delivering digital transformation solutions for clients.

I was a guest of Genpact at the London E-Prix held last weekend at EcCeL London to see up close their partnership with the Envision Racing Team.

As I learned in part 1 of the series when I interviewed Chief Digital Officer, Sanjay Srivastava this sponsorship goes way beyond having their logo on the car.

Tiger explains in his episode how the partnership came about, and learnings to date.

We also explored a range of other areas in our 35-minute chat including:

  • How has Genpact changed in the 22 years Tiger has been there
  • The story behind Tiger’s name
  • Tips for being a lifelong learner
  • Using podcasts to facilitate continuous learning
  • Re-skilling and upskilling at Genpact
  • Empathetic Leadership
  • Building leaders in a remote environment
  • The Future of work – People. Place. Purpose
  • The importance of purpose
  • How the Envision Racing Team partnership came about
  • Using AI within Genpact to help clients
  • Key learnings from the Envision Racing Partnership
  • Learnings from the other Envision Racing sponsors
  • Key learnings from the pandemic
  • What Tiger looks for in new employees & jobs of the future
  • Tiger’s involvement in Catalyst & the importance of diversity and inclusion
  • Three actionable things to become a lifelong learner 

I’ve enjoyed getting up and close with the Formula-E cars, and also seeing how they are literally defining the future of electric vehicles, from energy management, battery design, power., braking, regeneration and overall awareness that there is a path to sustainable transportation.

Thanks to Judith Schunke – head of Genpact Marketing EMEA and also their CMO, Stacy Simpson for making the day so enjoyable, and Liam Rawson and the team at The Hoffman Agency.
