Buoyed by good momentum, IT major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) today said it will hire 50,000 people in FY'13.
"TCS is well prepared to achieve balanced growth across the industries and markets it operates in FY'13. In view of good momentum, we are targeting to employ 50,000 people this year," TCS CEO and MD N Chandrasekaran told reporters here.
In view of excellent growth in North American and UK markets, TCS continues to hire in overseas markets, he added.
"With business demand continuing to be robust, we have made 43,600 offers on campuses for trainees to join us from the second quarter of this fiscal year," TCS Executive Vice President, Head, Global Human Resources, Ajoy Mukherjee said.
During the fourth quarter, TCS added 19,156 professionals (gross) and 11,832 employees (net) to take its total headcount to 2.38 lakh.
In FY'12, the company added 70,400 employees (gross), which is the largest ever hiring effort in its history. The net addition during the fiscal stood at 39,969 people.
Commenting on wage hike, Chandrasekaran said employees will get wage hike of eight per cent on average depending on their grades.
He added that though there is a dip in volume growth in Europe, it is expected to pick up in the next quarter.
The company dismissed concerns that US visa rejections to Indian employees would lead to increased hiring in India.
"We are hiring employees in the US, including trainees. We will be visiting campuses in the US during the fall semester," Mukherjee said.
On attrition, Mukherjee said, "Our efforts to increase retention by engaging with our employees and offering them a progressive career path are paying dividends with attrition rates falling further to 12.2 per cent."
The overall attrition rate was lower at 12.2 per cent with IT attrition at a low of 11.05 per cent and BPO attrition at 21.6 percent on a last twelve month (LTM) basis.
