New Delhi, September 12: Infosys will hire about 6,000 engineers annually over next 1-2 years. The country's second largest software services firm has also ramped up its hiring process in the US and European markets.
"The country's second-largest software exporter is creating more jobs, adding more people and letting go of only a minuscule number of people, purely from the performance-related perspective," Rao had said back then.
According to reports, Infosys said in June that it would hire 20,000 people this year after laying off about 400 employees on performance grounds. The company had also termed reports of large-scale job losses as overstated.
Interestingly, Infosys's founders and former board members have been in conflict over alleged corporate governance lapses and irregularities in the company's $200-million acquisition of Panaya.
