Energizing local communities
The world over, Infosys is committed to ‘going local’ to strengthen its profile as an employer of choice for employees and be part of the local culture.
We believe client proximity lends several benefits while delivering ‘agile digital transformation’.
In fiscal 2020, we recruited 6,932 employees locally in our non-India operations, of which 2,035 were fresh graduates. This workforce brings us a greater diversity of skills and experience. We also work with various academic institutions to re-skill our employees. We collaborate with the Rhode Island School of Design, Purdue University, Trinity College, Hartford, Cornell University and University of North Carolina, to name a few. With the objective of creating differentiated talent pools and ecosystems in our markets, we have operationalized regional innovation hubs globally.
Collaborating with academic institutions
We further expanded our university and community college partnerships in all these regions to aid internships, recruitment, training and joint research.
65% of our fresh talent from campuses in India comes from Tier 2 and 3 towns. We believe it is important to spread growth and opportunities beyond Tier 1 cities in India and to this end, we are making focused efforts. This will, in turn, contribute to decongesting Tier 1 cities, reduce pressure on scarce resources and improve the quality of life for everyone. Further, facilitating flexible and remote work options will help us tap into diverse talent pools, enabling access to and participation in opportunity for all.
