Infosys is step up local hiring of freshers and experienced young professionals in United States through region-specific hubs.
As an experiment, Infosys had set up such hubs and is planning to expand in the region. The decision comes into existence by watching the potential immigration law changes by President-elect Donald Trump.
"We started hiring freshers from US campuses in the past couple of years, so, that will continue. Our focus is to hire locals and supplement skills, which are not available with the visa programme.
We are also looking for setting up specific hubs, which we have experimented with in the last couple of years," Ravi Kumar S, who has been elevated as deputy chief operating officer of Infosys, told investors in a recent call. Infosys does not give specific data on local employees in developed markets.
Ravi Kumar added that Infosys would focus on setting up such hubs in geographies where clients have a higher demand for local people.
Chief Executive Officer Vishal Sikka said hiring local talent helps it "bring the contextual sense of innovation" at the work for clients.
