Tata Consultancy Services, the country’s largest software exporter, says its investment in upgrading the skills of employees in digital and emerging technologies is showing returns. With it, the firm says, they’re being able to harness the talent to bag newer contracts from clients.
“We have a very strong in-house talent development programme and prefer to train an employee on new skills before looking at options. We started training our employees on digital skills a couple of years ago and this focus has contributed greatly to our growth,” says Ajoyendra Mukherjee, executive vice-president and global head of human resources (HR).
While lateral hiring continues, the large scale of digital requirements cannot be met without utilising the available talent pool, he adds.
