Infosys CEO to accelerate hiring from US, Europe even after Trump departure

While the bulk of Infosys's recruitment remains in India -- with 15,000 grads enlisted over the past 12 months -- Infosys is laying the foundation for more hiring abroad at a rapid clip

Infosys Ltd. will accelerate hiring in the US and Europe, after Trump-era immigration curbs forced the Asian tech-services giant and its rivals to overhaul their traditional reliance on serving global clients with Indian talent.
Asia’s No. 2 IT services company has recruited 2,000 college graduates outside of India in the past 12 months and will only hire more over the next year, Chief Executive Officer Salil Parekh told Bloomberg Television. That’s despite expectations that President Joe Biden will adopt a more relaxed view on immigration in general than his predecessor.
“We’ve taken a localisation approach,” Parekh said in an interview. “That helps us build a more resilient approach for the future which can work for different policies, different scenarios. That’s our hope. As new policies emerge, we have the building blocks which can work in multiple scenarios.”
