Unique opening: US-based firm Escalon Services invites NGO to unveil office
Escalon is a one-stop-shop for essential back-end business services
Chandigarh, September 27, 2023: Guided by the spirit of giving back to society and growing with people, Escalon, a US-based Financial Services KPO (Knowledge Process Outsourcing) organization, with operations and personnel in the US, India, Norway, and Israel, has expanded its operations in the tricity by opening an expansive office in Mohali’s Sec 67.
With this, Mohali - the region’s fast-emerging industrial and IT hub has got a further boost. It is notable that Escalon has been founded by an alumnus of Punjab Engineering College (PEC).
The ribbon cutting ceremony was done by 3 young girls who were abandoned by their families and are being brought up by well -known Non- Governmental Organisation (NGO) - Jyoti Sarup Kanya Asra. The girls are currently pursuing their graduation.
Ruby Sahiwal, CEO, Escalon Business Services, said that through our punchline - ‘Escalon. And Done’ we assure customers that they can count on us to get their back-office services taken care of. “The Escalon journey started from PEC . I am happy that Escalon has grown and helped over 5,000 companies across a range of industries and in 25 countries optimize their back office departments like Finance, Accounting, HR, Payroll etc.” said Sahiwal.
Sahiwal while reiterating his company’s resolve to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), which was amply reflected in the fact that they invited girls living in a ‘facility of an NGO’, to unveil the new office at Mohali, added, “CSR is very close to our hearts and opening an office in Mohali is also a tribute to tricity.”
Escalon supports Jyoti Sarup Kanya Asra as a part of its ‘CSR commitments’ under the aegis of Escalon Foundation- the company’s CSR arm. “The purpose of donating to help the girl child is to break down barriers that hinder her potential. It empowers the girl child through education, healthcare and opportunities. By investing in girls, we secure a brighter, more inclusive future for communities and economies alike,” said Ankur Saxena, Director India Operations, Escalon.
Vipul Barbhaya, COO, Escalon, said, “Escalon has shown substantial growth in the worst economic phase which was the COVID era. We saw a 3X growth during COVID years. We are taking a year to settle and stabilize our operations and processes for the future. The business that we are in, which is core finance and accounting, are ones that an organisation is in need of at all times. So growth is inevitable.”
He added, “Over the next few years, our organization is strategically focused on several key priorities, one of which is to invest in digital transformation, leveraging advanced technologies like automation and data analytics to enhance operational efficiency and accuracy.”
“Global expansion efforts will continue, seeking opportunities in newer markets to extend our reach to tap a wider clientele. Our dedication to talent development involves ongoing training and attracting top industry professionals to maintain a skilled workforce,” summed up Sahiwal.
