Rising cost pressures and changing global factors are increasingly affecting the ability of companies to maintain profitability.

WNS Global Services is one of India's leading BPO companies that has, in just a few years, evolved from being a captive company operating in a single industry segment to a flourishing third-party provider servicing clients across multiple industries and functions.
WNS was formed in June 1996 as a captive of British Airways
