Genpact’s pharmacovigilance team was also a finalist on its Innovative Team of the Year list.
The Best Workplace for Innovators list honoured Genpact for its strategic focus and investment in innovation that create a positive impact for clients, employees, and communities.
Fast Company praised Genpact’s purpose in action (The relentless pursuit of a world that works better for people) related to the life-saving and innovative solutions deployed in the fight against COVID-19 that affected clients and communities.
Genpact’s pharmacovigilance team was recognised for leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to manage massive amounts of data in the fight against COVID for the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the United Kingdom.
Genpact helped Yellow Cart, a public portal website where adverse events are reported directly via a webform to analyse, extract, and codify free text. The website checks these adverse cases before sending for further review by the MHRA.
Genpact says these reports allow scientists to better understand the effects of vaccines on patients.
“Innovation in the end is all about people and company culture. Diversity and inclusiveness are key in people, and it’s critical that the culture be one of endless curiosity and continuous learning, and actively supports incisive and creative thinking,” says Genpact chief digital officer Sanjay Srivastava.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2021 Best Workplaces for Innovators list is in its third year and ranks 100 winners from diverse industries.
Working together, Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers scored nearly 1,500 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 companies from around the world.
“These leaders and teams created cultures of innovation and sustained them, even as remote work extended into 2021,” concludes Fast Company editor-in-chief Stephanie Mehta. “This newest list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators honours those organisations that found ways to collaborate and invent despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, ensuring employees were a priority.”
