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.

"We continue to recruit. This year that just concluded we had a net addition of 6,000 and we expect similar kind of additions over the next one or two years, depending on the kind of growth you see in the market," Infosys interim-Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director (MD) UB Pravin Rao said last week.


"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.
