India’s top five IT firms added 25% fewer people in FY20

India’s top five IT services firms – Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, HCL Technologies, Wipro and Tech Mahindra – have added 25% fewer employees in the financial year 2019-20, as automation has slowed business growth.

India’s top five IT services firms – Tata Consultancy Services, InfosysNSE 1.39%, HCL TechnologiesNSE 1.30%, Wiproness -0.05% and Tech MahindraSE 3.84% have added 25% fewer employees in FY 201-20 as automation slowed.

Business has increased from. Five software service providers added a net 66,500 employees, against a net recruitment of 87,060 people in the financial year 2018-19. They employ about 1.14 million people, a quarter of India’s 4.3 million technology workforce.

“It clearly represents two things. It is no longer body-shopping. The world is changing from linear to exponential, meaning that new technologies such as artificial intelligence, automation and new-age technology platforms are enabling delivery models that are not linear for many, ”said Harshvendra Soin, head of Tech Mahindra People told officer E.T.

Earthly tasks have been automated, helping to reduce the need for some employees and becoming more effective in solving existing employees.

Rituparna Chakraborty, senior vice president of staffing firm TeamLease, said the hiring trend clearly indicates that organizations are trying to “improve their ability to do predictive work automatically, with fewer employees.”

“I am not surprised by this trend.” Infosys reported a steep decline in net hiring, as the second largest Indian IT services firm recruited around 10,000 fewer people than FY19.

Infosys and Tech Mahindra also have reported considerably higher attrition in the past financial year, at almost 20%.

The IT sector’s web hiring amount, albeit low, is a testimony to how there’s positivity and demand,” said Chakraborty. “Their capacity to support additional need with fewer individuals has also enhanced,” she added.

The best five have claimed to honor job offers made but have suspended new hiring in the aftermath of this Covid-19 pandemic. Though HCL Tech said it would hire 15,000 freshers, it’s suspended lateral hiring.

The pandemic is anticipated to have a short term effect on job creation throughout the present financial year, but the declining trend in job development is very likely to continue as a result of the IT industry’s changing business model, economists said.

“Many large IT services companies are seeing budget cuts by customers in the US in the retail and pharma sectors and this is likely to affect future demand to some extent,” Eric Lobo, Head-Hunter Ray & Executive Director of Personnel at Burntston he said.

In fact, Lobo said, the two major pharma brands are also considering strengthening internal IT teams on low budgets for service providers. Despite temporary flaws, need-based hiring will continue with these techniques.
