Leading companies from Bangalore Participate in the Forum
Tavant Technologies, a leading global provider of specialized software solutions & services, today announced that the company along with NASSCOM hosted a meeting of the ‘Facilities Mangers Zone’ (FM-zone) to discuss cab shortage issues faced by companies in Bangalore today. Close to twenty leading companies played an active role in the Forum which was hosted at Tavant’s office premises.
The Forum brought to light a serious challenge with regard to providing safe and on-time cab services to employees. Many of these companies rely on taxi rental service providers, who facing tough competition from aggregators, among other reasons, frequently fall short on meeting contractual commitments. The Forum provided an opportunity for representatives from participating companies to discuss their current transportation woes and their handicap in exceeding employee expectations with regard to transportation arrangements.
Unreliability of cab service, escalating costs and limited security measures offered by service providers were related topics of discussion.Empathizing with these issues Ashok Pamidi, Regional Head-Karnataka, NASSCOM said, “These issues have to be dealt with at the grassroots level with active participation from the government. Diversity at the workplace and the responsibility attached to providing a safe work environment are of primary importance and the companies represented here show their solidarity and commitment to their respective workforces.”
“This meeting is an attempt to consolidate transportation challenges faced by individual organizations. Consolidation of challenges towards addressing them is the first step forward in finding a solution. We at Tavant have taken this initiative because we are strongly committed to providing a safe and conducive workplace for our workforce,” said V. Sunil, Director-Facilities, Tavant Technologies.
