Michigan-based IT and BPO firm HTC Global Services has said that it is looking to hire around 3,000 employees in India in order to reach its revenue target of $1 billion in the next two years, The Economic Times reported.
The company, which has a 11,000-strong workforce that includes staff from CareTech and Ciber, acquired in 2014 and 2017, respectively, has development centres across cities such as Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
The report also said that the company is looking to scale up faster, buoyed by its automation-led services. HTC had increased its clientele, too, when it had acquired Ciber for $93 million.
“We are finalising hiring (numbers), and it will not be fewer than 2,000-3,000 people by 2020 for India,” Chary Mudumby, chief technology officer, HTC Global Services, was quoted as saying. He added that the demand was driven by clients looking for talent with domain knowledge.
“We are trying to bring in talent from the educational institutions because the current market demand for emerging technology is more,” Mudumby told the newspaper.
All system integrators and consulting firms such as Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro, Infosys, Capgemini and Accenture are looking to gain more revenue from emerging technologies such as data analytics and blockchain. A few of them have even launched newer platforms and acquired companies to support such initiatives.
Mudumby, too, said that HTC would drive digitisation efforts and lead its services based on robotic process automation and machine learning. “Forty per cent of our customers today are using digital technology-based services,” he was quoted as saying.
