Indian IT firm Infosys hires 3,000 employees in the US

In the last two years, Indian IT firms have increased efforts to hire locals

Taking the tally to 30,938 in FY21, from 28,162 in the year before, the Indian IT firm – Infosys has hired nearly 3,000 employees in the US, a filing to the US SEC showed. However, the total number employed in Europe dropped to 16,412, from 17,671 in the year before. The Indian IT firm expanded its workforce outside India by 7,280, of which 1,941 were fresh graduates. “This workforce brings us greater diversity of skills and experience. This initiative also significantly de-risks our operations from regulatory changes related to immigration policies”, Infosys said in its filing.

In the last two years, Indian IT firms have increased efforts to hire locals. Infosys has already surpassed its commitment, made in 2017, to hire 10,000 American workers. TCS has hired 21,500 employees in the US over the last five years.

In the US across Indiana, North Carolina, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Texas and Arizona, Infosys launched technology and innovation centres in the past three years. For turbo-machinery and propulsion practice, last year, it set up a digital innovation centre in Dusseldorf in Germany and a strategic centre of excellence in Baden in Switzerland. For its recruitment process, the Indian IT firm said it has developed the InTap platform.

“Likewise, the employee joining process also had to be pivoted to allow remote joining and induction. Our Launchpad tool provides a guided flow for our new hires throughout the on-boarding process, making the entire process paperless and faster, resulting in faster deployment on projects”, it said in the filing.
