India’s information technology outsourcing & software development company is focusing on hiring more locals for its onsite locations. THCL has hired over 14,500 people in 2014-15, has about 21.7 per cent of employees at onsite locations. HCL was considered as one of the lowest H1-B visa consumption in the industry. This year, we have hired about 14,500 and one-third of these were onshore. These were primarily locals and the number of locals that we have is higher than most other companies,” HCL Technologies President and CEO said. The company has on-boarded about 3,000 people across locations like the US, the UK and China from various clients and most of them are locals.
