BENGALURU: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) plans to keep its India campus hiring this year at about the same level as last year (40,000), despite the sharp drop in revenue in the quarter ended June on account of the Covid-19 fallout.
It also plans to double its US campus hires to nearly 2,000 this fiscal, as part of an effort to reduce dependence on H-1B and L-1 work visas, which are becoming increasingly difficult to get.
“Our key strategy for building from the bottom doesn’t change. The 40,000 (in India) might become 35,000 or 45,000 — that’s a tactical call we will make,” TCS EVP & global HR head Milind Lakkad said. The move reflects the company’s view that business will bounce back in the second half of the year.
