The companys HR head acknowledges the fact that in 2009, it did not invest
in training due to the ongoing recession. It rather focused on keeping its
operational efficiencies in the pink and worked on countering the recessionary
impact. Another dampener was infrastructure where employees gave Allsec a thumbs

processes. And in the ongoing year Allsec expects its lower rank on growth
changing for better.
Allsec also worked on employee integration as a result of its acquisition of
the call center business of Delhi based i2i Telesource. Despite the overall
recessionary trends Allsec did not downsize and the increased domestic market
penetration acted as a big savior for the company in sustaining its business.
