Deloitte US has expanded delivery capabilities in India with new offices in Pune, Chennai and Kolkata to serve companies globally. The company said in the coming year over 10,000 professionals would be operating from these locations, catering to the increased demand for business services exports.
This move was in response to the growing US demand for skilled professionals across Deloitte’s advisory businesses. These included professionals specializing in artificial intelligence, data analytics, cybersecurity, cloud, human capital, assurance, tax, valuations, and mergers and acquisitions.
Deloitte was leveraging the talent available in India and tapping the increasing opportunities in business services exports. The country’s skilled workforce is being sought after by global organisations for high-end work and opening of these offices would allow the organisation to tap into the specialised talent pool and drive the next phase of growth, the company said.
