According to TECHGIG report, the information technology company, Infosys will focus on the hiring of a restricted number of roles that will possess specific expertise in cybersecurity and data mining.
Moreover, the roles will also provide salaries that exceed the standard compensation given to recent graduates during the recruitment drives. The company also intends to hire software engineers in the following month.
During the third quarter results of current financial year, Infosys Chief Financial Officer Nilanjan Roy said, “We continue to monitor the utilization and our flexi hiring model and at this stage of course we’re not seeing any immediate campus requirement.”
In the previous Quarter, the company said that it would skip campus hiring this year as it has a ‘way to go’ on utilization. However, it is monitoring the situation every quarter.
Earlier in November, Infosys inaugurated a development center (DC) at the Mihan-SEZ in Nagpur, Maharashtra. The new state-of-the-art development center (DC) will accommodate over 3,000 employees.
The company has invested over INR 230 crore in the development of this facility, which will provide greater flexibility for employees to work in a hybrid mode and enable re-skilling and up-skilling of local talent.
The hiring drive news comes at the time when Infosys headcount crashed by 6,101 in Q3FY24. The Total number of employees in the Q3 ended on Dec 31, 2023, stood at 322,663.
