On this episode of The Shape of Work, our guest talks about the significant talent acquisition challenges and the importance of employee retention in the competitive talent market.
"I make a point to meet with the most junior members of the team, without supervisors in small groups. This allows me to hear firsthand what is going well and what could be improved upon. It also gives me the opportunity to take action to make necessary improvements."
We welcome Pooja Taparia, Founder & Chief Executive of Arpan - an award-winning organization in Mumbai, India, that works to address child sexual abuse. It is the largest NGO in India in this field, with over 120 social workers and counselors offering prevention and intervention services to children and adults.
Pooja is a member of the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) and has received numerous awards for her work on child abuse, including the Inspire Award, the Astitwa Award, the Architects of the Future Award, and the Karmaveer Puraskar Award. Since 2007, Arpan has impacted over 2 million (20 lakh) children and adults and has received 6 National and 2 International Awards, including the WISE Award and the C. Henry Kempe Award.
