Infosys in May 2017 said it would hire 10,000 American workers by 2019 and the company has already hired over 6,200 of them since it made this people announcement.
Infosys’ investment in Texas reinforces the company’s commitment to driving digital transformation for American enterprises by leveraging local talent alongside the best global talent. These new Texas employees will include recent graduates from the state’s prestigious network of colleges, universities and community colleges who will benefit from upskilling through Infosys’ world-class training curriculum, said the company here on Wednesday.
Pravin Rao, Chief Operating Officer, Infosys said, “Digital is rapidly changing every industry, and our new innovation and tech hubs will allow us to co-locate, co-innovate and co-create alongside our clients.”
Commenting on this development, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, “Infosys’ expanded investment in Texas is fantastic news for our state and will provide Texans with the training and skills they need to compete in today’s technology-driven economy. Every Texan should have the opportunity to advance economically, and we thank Infosys for helping even more Texans become part of the workforce for the future.”
