HCL to hire 12K freshers this year, rolling out salary increments too
Indian IT service exporter, HCL Technologies will hire 12,000 freshers for FY21 from campuses. The company has already hired close to 3,000, and the rest would be on-boarded in the next two quarters, said VV Apparao, Chief Human Resources Officer, HCL Tech.
Apparao said, “The company is also hiking salaries in two installments, effective October and January 2021.”
Earlier this year in the month of July, the company had decided to suspend the salary hikes offered to its employees for FY21 due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, all its peer companies like TCS, Infosys, and Wipro, also, have announced the salary increment from December quarter.
Apparao VV said, “We expect a large number of recruitments to happen before December. It is much more than the initial two quarters.” It includes both freshers and later hires.
The company has reported revenues of $2.5 billion for the quarter ended September 2020, up 4.5 percent quarter-on-quarter on constant currency, in line with its mid-quarter guidance.
