Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Ltd will complete its target of hiring 1,500 freshers from campuses in the US by March 2020, said a company executive. This is in continuation of its localisation efforts to hire more people in the US, the largest market for TCS.
North America contributed 50.6% to the company’s total revenue in the second quarter ended September.
“Our localisation efforts in the US as well as other geographies have been an integral part of our long-term planning and talent strategy and helps us in being closer to our customers and agile in responding to their needs," Milind Lakkad, global head of HR, TCS said in a telephonic interview.
While TCS does not disclose the number of its employees in the US, industry experts estimate the company has about 40,000 people in the US out of its total headcount of 450,738 people.
