Infosys plans to hire 25,000 freshers over the next 12 months — a 26% boost for campus hiring in India
- Infosys plans to hire 25,000 freshers over the next 12 months and only 1,000 will be from overseas.
- The other 24,000 freshers will be picked up from engineering campuses within India.
- Last year, the IT giant only picked up 19,000 freshers from within the country, while 2,000 fresher hires were overseas.
- This is a jump of over 26% from the number of freshers onboarded in the last one year from Indian colleges.
However, the company saw a spike in voluntary attrition hitting 15.2% between the months of January to March, which is an increase of five percentage points over the previous quarter. "Attrition has picked up, largely reflecting a strong demand environment, but we remain confident of our employee engagement initiatives, vast talent pool and training capabilities to ensure seamless execution," said Rao.
