Co-founder & CEO
Pankaj Bansal is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of PeopleStrong. Having observed the unorganized and non-integrated HR industry in India during his professional journey, Pankaj felt the need to create an entity that could effectively manage the complete employee life cycle, simultaneously ensuring a satisfied employee experience for its clients. At PeopleStrong, he is responsible for building strategic partnerships and managing the overall growth of the company, both in Indian and international markets.
A visionary, Pankaj is passionate about technology and truly believes that HR will take the leap into the next orbit by embracing technology. With this thought, he has led the team to develop PeopleStrong Alt, an on demand technology product that aims to simplify work life for its users.
An active member of Confederation of Indian Industries’ (CII’s) National Committee on Skills & Human Resources, Pankaj is currently Regional President – North at National HRD Network (NHRDN), a premier professional body for HR professionals in India. In his earlier stint with NHRDN, he served as the board member for almost a decade and has been one of youngest members in the network’s board. He is also the Non-Executive Director at The HR Fund, India’s first Venture Capital Fund, dedicated to investment in HR solutions companies, and Wheebox, the fastest growing talent assessment company in India.
