Country's second largest software firm Infosys plans to hire close to 2,000 people in the US by the end of this year. Infosys has also announced expansion of its US operations by setting up a new 125-seater centre in Wisconsin to provide end-to-end technology, consulting and systems integration services. The centre will also house a training center. With this, Infosys now has 18 facilities in the US and is reflective of the commitment it has to local job creation, Infosys said. The centre in Wisconsin is a part of Infosys' engagement with American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson. Most Indian technology companies have been consistently hiring more and more in the western countries over the past few years to blunt the criticism of 'taking away' jobs.
