"My first week in the TAP program at the India Learning Center was so much fun and full of knowledge building."
How I put change in motion
As part of the HR Service Delivery team, I lead diagnostic and prescriptive analytics for the Advanced Technology Centers in India, providing data-driven, actionable insights. Essentially, I help my leaders identify opportunities to help our people feel supported and engaged in their work.
I’ll never forget the week of the Talent Accelerator Program (TAP) kickoff, where we met our global peers and Accenture leaders. That first week at the India Learning Center was so much fun and full of knowledge building. We even visited Accenture Labs to witness some of the futuristic technologies that the world is yet to see.
During a typical day in TAP, you’re expected to bring your best self to work and to live up to the reputation that the TAP brand has throughout Accenture—values like accountability, reliability and excellence in our work.
In my first HR rotation, I was assigned to one of the recruitment enablement teams, where we built a specialized tool for recruiters. I learned, in a very short time, about change management and skill building. It was pioneering and transformational work.
A day in my life
Apart from my basic daily work surveying retention data and drawing conclusions, you’ll find me browsing through our internal learning portal to find topics of interest. I’ve enjoyed courses and certifications in topics like technology, the art of storytelling, retention analytics and others.
Outside of work, I really enjoy hiking. My favorite so far was through the Hampta Pass—at an elevation of 14,000 feet—in Himachal Pradesh. I started from the Kullu Valley and finished at Chatru in Spiti. It really is worth the effort because, as the saying goes, “The best view comes after the hardest climb.”

The TAP experience is unique for each individual. Don’t base your pathway on the experiences of others. Carve it your own way, and when you look back at the end, that is something you will cherish.
