Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology, and outsourcing services, helped celebrate its 50th Anniversary by setting a Guinness World Records title for their unique initiative "ROAR - The Fit India Movement."

The Guinness World Records certificate was presented to Srinivas Kandula, Country Head of Capgemini in India, in Bengaluru in the presence of several members of the India leadership team and Capgemini employees.
