About The Survey

This survey is to gauge the current scope, relevance and understanding of the communications function within global in-house centres (GICs). It isn’t restricted to GICs in the Indian subcontinent.

GICs refer to the service and delivery operations units that serve parent companies around the world to standardize processes, systems and programs and in turn save costs, improve efficacies and enhance centralized capabilities.

They are often referred to as ‘captives’ or ‘shared services’. According to NASSCOM, there are over 825 GICs in India offering the entire spectrum of services – IT services, BPM, ER&D, and software products, employ over 530,000 people, and account for 17 per cent of the total export revenues in India. It is estimated that 50% of Fortune 500 firms to have GIC footprint in India by 2015.

What Will It Gauge?

What is the optimum approach to communication in GICs? What do communicators and leaders focus on? What types of communication will have the most impact and how should GICs approach communication to get ahead?

This survey aims to bridge that gap in benchmarking the value and impact associated with communication within GICs and with the parent companies. The output from this study can guide how GICs can invest in communication within their respective entities.
