Gurgaon-based corporate training firms are providing holistic services catering to the fundamental business problems faced by corporates. And so their services focus on training and development of managers and employees at all levels. These 'people development programs' are customized. Adding to it Bikram Kumar Singh, CEO of BK One says, "Every organisation is made from and by its people, and so they are the biggest asset and should always be a priority." BK One is a multinational consulting, training and learning solutions based out of Gurgaon and New York. For some it has been training their finance department in increasing business acumen so as to bridge financial activities with business strategies resulting in partnering in business decision.
BK One and Franklin Covey India have been in training and consulting for over a decade in India. For Franklin Covey, their leadership and effectiveness flagship program is called 7-Habbits Solution.

Miguel is an intelligent man; he’s from Canada,” repeats Bikram Kumar Singh, his voice changing pitch at each syllable, as clearly and deliberately as a car changes gear. Bikram Kumar Singh and his team have helped more than 400,000 Indian and Filipino call centre operators answering the phone over the past 10 years. His method, “Bikram’s Model of Intonation”, is used in more than 50 of the leading BPOs in India as well as in other international businesses worldwide. Having worked as a training lead at General Electric Co. from 1998, Singh set up his company, BK One, in 2001 as a voice and accent training school for international BPO (short for business process outsourcing, a term loosely used to refer to companies in the business) employees, who are required to interact on the telephone with foreigners on a daily basis. “Now, we have over 400 clients,” he says. “We specialize in BPO training in India, the Philippines, the Middle East, the US, Canada, Mexico, the UK, Romania, Kenya, South Africa, China, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.”

Mr. Singh faces a room full of clever young lawyers, who have landed well-paid (for here) and comfortable jobs providing legal services for a major U.S. financial services firm, with a head office in the Midwest. But if they are to advance in this industry, they must be able to make themselves understood: conquer the consonants, master the idioms and much more besides.
Mr. Singh, who heads a firm of 4,000 trainers, is part of a rapidly growing industry turning out workers who have been “neutralized” – or, in the softer language some trainers prefer, “globalized.” They know their petrol pumps from their gas stations; they understand the concept of small talk; they have had drummed out of them the idea that an evasive “yes” is preferable to a frank “no” when you can’t do something.
