Global Upside Supports the Employers of National Service Initiative
Global Upside is proud to be a member of the Employers of National Service initiative. Employers of National Service highlights the talents of AmeriCorps and Peace Corps alumni and connects them with employers that recognize their unique skills. Headquartered in San Jose, California, Global Upside provides high quality accounting, staffing, and human resources services to companies worldwide and we are always on the lookout for qualified, skilled, and highly motivated professionals to help us deliver the sort of service we are well known for. As an Employer of National Service, we have joined more than 80 leading employers from the private, public and nonprofit sectors to create recruitment, hiring, and advancement opportunities for job seekers who have served in AmeriCorps or the Peace Corps.
At Global Upside, we believe that outstanding performance at work is a product of many things. But one key factor is the ability to bring a high level of commitment and dedication to one’s work, and pride in delivering excellent results. Young people who have served in the Americorps program show exactly that sort of dedication. That’s one reason we’ve hired Neha Bhargava at Global Upside. In her AmeriCorps service, she showed the ability to commit to a demanding and challenging program at a young age. The young people who join AmeriCorps have to show determination and commitment, as well as the ability to work with all kinds of people, including businesspeople, government officials, and disadvantaged populations. After fulfilling those obligations at AmeriCorps, we felt confident that Neha could transfer those skills into the business environment at Global Upside. At Global Upside, we work every day with many clients, spread over the entire US and up to 60 countries worldwide. Our team needs to show the flexibility, focus, and commitment to deliver prompt, accurate, first-class service to every single client. We regard the AmeriCorps program as an excellent training ground for our professionals.
“I believe that people who show at a young age the type of commitment demanded by AmeriCorps and Peace Corps
will do well in their adult life, because commitment to these programs demonstrates that they believe in something larger than themselves,” said Global Upside founder and CEO Ragu Bhargava. “As they move into the business world and transfer that outlook and commitment to their careers and their employers, they become a powerful asset for anybody who employs them.”
