TCS expands Ohio footprint, plans to hire 800+ employees
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), leading global IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, announced plans to expand its operations in Ohio by hiring more than 800 local employees at its Seven Hills Park campus outside of Cincinnati and other offices across the state by 2022, to meet the evolving needs of its customers.
Additionally, to meet the increasing demand for IT talent and address local community needs, TCS will invest more than USD $518 million in Ohio over the next two years and expects to double participation in its award-winning STEM and computer science K-12 education programs by 2022.
“This investment in the greater Cincinnati region demonstrates TCS’ commitment to training and growing Ohio’s workforce,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “TCS’ plan to double its commitment in STEM programs will positively impact the lives of young Ohioans and prepare them to enter this growing industry.”
I’m pleased that Tata Consultancy Services will be furthering its investment in Ohio’s world-class workforce with this new investment in the Cincinnati and Columbus regions, which will create more than 800 new jobs,” said Senator Rob Portman. “The kind of STEM education TCS provides is essential for ensuring our students get the skills to fill the jobs of today and tomorrow, and I am proud to support these kinds of efforts to help develop the innovators and the workforce our economy needs to thrive. I want to thank TCS for their commitment to helping our teachers develop a truly 21st-century educational curriculum.”
“The pandemic changed the way companies view technology, requiring them to demonstrate their purpose and value to consumers. Our strong relationships with the greater Cincinnati business community ensure that we will continue to deliver innovative transformation solutions to meet evolving customer expectations,” said Surya Kant, Chairman of North America, TCS. “Ohio is also an integral location for TCS to recruit and train the best local talent and our dedication to provide STEM and computer science education to local schools demonstrates our commitment to the local community.”
“Ohio has an outstanding partner in TCS, which launched its North American STEM education efforts in Cincinnati more than ten years ago,” said J.P. Nauseef, President and CEO, JobsOhio. “As a global leader in IT consulting, TCS can grow wherever it chooses in the North American market, and it chose to expand and bring 800 new jobs to Ohio.”
TCS’ Cincinnati center, one of 30 locations the company has in the U.S., serves more than 160 customers across the state of Ohio and has hired 1,337 employees locally since 2017. Furthermore, TCS hired 244 students from local universities in Ohio for jobs across the U.S. over the last five years, including 18 area graduates in 2020 who participated in a virtual internship program.
