For the series “a chat with the team”: Nupur Bhattacharya
Nupur joined Occuity at the end of 2022 as HR & Recruitment Co-ordinator. With the company continuing to grow rapidly, it was necessary to bring on someone like Nupur to assist with the entire recruitment life-cycle to ensure we continue to attract the best talent.
She graduated with a Masters's degree in Human Resource Management from the University of Westminster, London and also holds a Level 7 CIPD certification. Her main area of interest is the influence of Artificial Intelligence in modern-day hiring and she was even a keynote speaker on this subject at my university.
Nupur started her career in training and development for a leading ITES provider and later worked at a staffing startup where she assisted in the setting up of an entire HR department including policies and processes. Thereafter, she worked for Gympac Fitness Systems (Precor), India, where she led the HR team in reviewing, restructuring, and rolling out HR policies across 6 locations
Nupur describes herself as an "enthusiastic, ambitious and creative person with a passion for HR."
