Looks like the quantified workplace is paying off in spades. Known as FitBit for employee-related goals, Palo Alto-based BetterWorks has doubled their workforce in the last six months.

On the Right Shore: Partha De Sarkar

There are very few CEOs like Partha De Sarkar who have an amazing success story to narrate. The CEO of Rs 2500-crore BPO firm Hinduja Global Solutions doesn't base his company's growth on revenue numbers. He's more concerned about becoming the best in the business. And rightly so. For the company has been a late entrant in the global BPO market, but has chartered spectacular growth in the last decade. How it has managed this tremendous success is a story in itself. For De Sarkar, people are HGS' biggest strength, and he's using IT as a vehicle to drive them.
