HTC Global Services is planning to hire 2,000-3,000 people in India in the coming two years to support its $1-billion revenue target by the end of 2020.
The IT services company has a strong employee base across its development centers in Chennai, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru. The company has a workforce of 11,000 employees globally including Ciber and CareTech, which was acquired in 2014.
“We are finalizing hiring (numbers), and it will not be less than 2000-3000 people by 2020 for India,” said Chary Mudumby, Chief Technology Officer, HTC Global Services, adding that its customers are looking for better value resulting in an increased demand for talent with domain knowledge.
The IT service firm is competing with the other multinational IT services company such as IBM, Accenture, and others. Companies such as HTC and others have seen a disruption in their business model as clients in the US, and other markets are now demanding more digital technology-led delivery.
“We are trying to bring in talent from the educational institutions because the current market demand for emerging technology is more,” added Mudumby.
Mudumby is upbeat about HTC’s growth, and he feels digitization of existing services and support using robotic process automation, machine learning, and AI will drive the growth.
