‘IT industry to add up to 2 lakh jobs in 2013-14’
While announcing its quarterly results, the company had said that hiring of laterals has increased because of a change in focus towards consulting and products. Infosys has started large-scale training for re-skilling its talent in the last two to three months. Until now Infosys was hiring senior and middle-level employees for the consulting business but now it is looking at people from top B-schools with an intention to retrain them.
That attrition rate at the Bangalore-based IT firm during the December quarter was flat at 15.1%. As on December 31, 2012, Infosys had 1,55,629 employees.
