BT today announced the appointment of Usha Baidya as the new HR vice president for Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) responsible for managing human resources for the company across the region.
Baidya has more than 15 years of HR experience, along with seven years at various business units of BT Global Services (GS). These include GS UK, GS Government & Health, and GS Portfolio, Service Design & BT Advise, where she helped these organisations grow through various programmes aimed at creating fulfilling and rewarding careers for staff.
“BT is a melting-pot of culture, language, skills and experience. Our role within HR is to find the right balance so that our employees will find their stay with us fulfilling at the professional and personal level,” said Baidya.
“I am very pleased to be part of BT’s drive to create a sustainable, harmonious and diversified work environment for over 4000 people across the region.”
Prior to joining BT, Baidya held a number of senior HR positions at Vodafone Global Services in the UK and Germany operations. Her experience working in multi-cultural environments puts her in an excellent position to plan and oversee BT’s talent strategy to ensure the company gives the best support to customers across AMEA.
Talent acquisition and retention are ongoing challenges for all organisations but this is particularly acute within the information communications technology (ICT) sector where fast-paced innovation and transformations are the norm, a statement on the placement read.
