Sep 21: Software technologies major Infosys has recruited 1000 American citizens in the state of Arizona, in the US. The company has gone ahead with the hiring of native talent in tune with its commitment towards providing employment to as many as 10,000 native Americans so as to bridge the infotech skills gap by year 2023.
The company, according to a report, would be deploying the 1,000 American workers at its new technology-cum-innovation hub being kicked off in Arizona. The 1000 native talent hired adds up to a total of 5,874 American workers recruited by Infosys as part of its commitment in this regard.
It needs to be recalled that the company has been fast adapting itself to the strict US immigration policies, and the plan to recruit 10,000 US locals comes as part of this.
With as many as 5,874 American workers being recruited in the run up to year 2023, the company is expected to carry on with the plan towards bringing in local technology manpower.
The company honcho Salil Parekh had in June this year said that localization was one among the company’s four-pillar strategy. The other three are digital investment, increase in use of artificial intelligence, and automation and re-skilling the company’s talent.
Parekh was then quoted by news reports as saying that the IT industry would have to adapt its business model given the change in the global dynamic surrounding immigration.
