The company added that its India operations team also includes finance and HR services that constitute 10 to 15% of total employee strength and combined, India represents 25% of the total global employee population at Parexel.

The company also adopted a more flexible operating model that allows colleagues to work in hybrid and decentralized models, allowing it to attract talent across India to support global company demands.

“At Parexel, we remain steadfast in our patients-first focus to help drive innovations. We continue to look for ways to put patients at the heart of everything we do and to simplify the way we do business to better benefit our patients, sponsors and investigator sites.
