A global technology consulting and services company, Mindtree has delayed the onboarding of employees by 10 months. The job claimant has been waiting for onboarding since January.
Accenture reportedly confirmed hiring in April but is delaying the onboarding till 2023. According to reports, freshers who got the offer letter from the company earlier in the year are still waiting for their onboarding. The company has seemingly postponed the dates of onboarding till 2023.
The job claimant said, “It has been 10 months now, and I am still waiting for an onboarding date from Mindtree.”
“I am going through extreme anxiety seeing how after waiting for months other IT companies are rolling back offers. I am scared it will happen to me also”, the Job Applicant added.
According to Harpreet Singh Saluja, President of NITES, an IT employees association, nearly 30,000 IT professionals have been impacted by the delay in onboarding at top IT firms like Infosys, Wipro, Tech Mahindra, Capgemini, and others.
“The ballpark figure could be around 30,000 professionals because it is an ongoing process. Throughout the year, campus placements are conducted by these IT companies”, said Harpreet Singh Saluja.
He further added, “We are in touch with thousands of students, this figure can cross 30,000 also.”
The freshers have also reached out to the placement cells of their college but have received no encouraging word.
Earlier, It was also reported that the IT majors of India Wipro, Infosys, and Tech Mahindra have also revoked the offer letters issued to many freshers candidates.
Students have received a letter stating that their employment letter is being revoked. The Tech companies have been revoked on grounds of failing certain eligibility criteria and company guidelines.
However, announcing the Q2FY23 financial results most IT companies have assured that they will honor all the offer letters and onboarding is in process.
