Accenture, which has nearly a third of its employee-base in India, is continuing to aggressively increase these numbers. Some 6,000 to 7,000 campus recruits will join the company this year. India currently is the single largest employee base for Accenture, with the headcount expected to cross 80,000 by August. Many of the new recruits will be laterals with expertise across ERP, CRM, SCM, EAI (enterprise application integration), application maintenance, application development, IT infrastructure, KPO/BPO, telecom application, consulting, project management, delivery management, business analysis, programme management and practice management.
India is becoming important to Accenture also as a market. In the latest (third) quarter, Accenture posted outsourcing revenues of $3.19 billion (on total revenue of $7.15 billion), an increase of 16%. Outsourcing revenues reached record-high levels in the quarter with India and the Asia Pacific regions fuelling the growth.
