Omega Healthcare has announced that it is expanding their operations in India and plans to hire 18,000 professionals over the next twelve months.
According to the company’s release, the expansion is planned for operations across Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. The technology-enabled healthcare service provider has already kick-started the process with hiring of 4,500 professionals already in place over the next 2 months.
Omega also plans to further strengthen its capabilities, deepen domain expertise and build new solutions, by generating employment not only in Tier-1 but also the Tier-2 markets in India.
The company’s strategy for talent acquisition is to identify professionals who have the aptitude to recognise potential process improvements, bracket trends, and have strong logical thinking and communication skills.
Omega is backed by Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Everstone Group, which employs more than 26,000 employees across the United States, India, and the Philippines and aims to enhance its focus on medical billing by strengthening its workforce in India.
Nitin Barekere, VP Human Resources, Omega Healthcare, said, “With recent business acquisitions and new customer wins, we are thrilled to announce our expansion plans in India this year. With the unemployment rate this year down to 6.57 per cent from its peak of 23.52 per cent in April 2020, we are keen on generating employment by targeting top fresh talent, both in tier 1 and tier 2 cities that include Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Coimbatore, and Trichy.”
