Leading global provider of Intelligent Automation (IA) technology Laiye, is honouring International Women’s Day by celebrating the achievements of Women across the organisation.
The company, which has just announced a $50m expansion across EMEA, is committed to equality and diversity in the workplace, providing equal opportunities, training, and support for all its staff across their global divisions. Laiye’s game-changing Intelligent Automation technology leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to offer bespoke, all-encompassing solutions involving Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Interactive Data Processing (IDP) and chatbots. The company recently hired industry veteran Neil Parker as its general manager EMEA to boost growth across the region.
Speaking to TechBullion on International Women’s Day, Faridah Ahmed, EMEA HR Manager for Laiye (Pictured), said: “Only 20% of women around the world are in the tech space, that is a very small percentage. For companies to scale and encourage innovation, women’s input is crucial as we can add a different perception to achieving business goals. This encourages better collaboration and may help change the status quo.
Ahmed continued, “Technology is constantly evolving, to be a part of the next big thing is really exciting as you’re surrounded by smart, motivated people who always push to be better than yesterday. Like technology, people tend to evolve in this space, it’s a huge opportunity to learn and be successful.”
Janisha Ghale, EMEA Business Development added, “There are so many possibilities within technology and what can be achieved and who you can be, as well as having the opportunity to get creative and explore options.”
Additionally, Xijuan Zhang, Solutions Delivery Consultant, said, “International Women’s Day is a great opportunity to encourage more women to enter the world of technology. I’ve been very curious about technology since I was a kid, and I’m interested in all technologies that can be automated, both software and hardware.
“I firmly believe that a career in technology can be lifechanging and encourage more women to explore it in their career plans,” Zhang concluded.
