India’s largest software exporter Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Sunday said it has opened Saudi Arabia’s first all-female business process centre, which will provide employment to up to 3,000 women in 3 years.
Saudi Aramco and GE are the centre’s first customers, TCS said in a statement. Both the clients have already surpassed their target of recruiting 100 women each, while the total number of those employed at the centre stands at 300, it said.
The Riyadh-based 3,200-sq mt facility will offer customers specialised finance and accounting, human resources, materials supply and office services to improve their operational efficiency, it said.
The centre was announced in September last year. Saudi Arabia’s Commerce and Industry Minister Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al Rabiah, Deputy Governor of Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority Prince Saud bin Khalid, Saudi Aramco’s President and Chief Executive Khalid Al Falih and GE’s Vice Chairman John Rice, were present on the occasion, the statement said.
