Indian IT services major HCLTech plans to expand its operations in Romania and hire 1,000 more people in the country in the next two years.
HCLTech, which completed five years of operations in Romania, will scale up its offices in Bucharest and Iasi. A third of the new roles will be offered to graduates recruited through partnerships with leading Romanian universities, the company said.
The company currently employs approximately 1,000 people in Romania serving global clients by leveraging its portfolio across digital, cloud, engineering, and software.
“We are investing in creating opportunities for local talent in Romania to pursue careers in technology. As we celebrate our fifth anniversary and embark on the next phase of our growth journey in the country, we remain committed to supercharging progress for our people and local communities,” Iulian Paduraru, HCLTech’s country lead for Romania.
“HCLTech is an important market player in Romania. We expect its growth trajectory to continue to improve as the business strengthens its local workforce and broadens its technology offerings in Romania,” said Alexandra Simion, Associate Consultant, IDC.
HCLTech has signed Romania’s Diversity Charter, and 47% of its employees in the country are women, which is well above the national average and that of the global technology industry. HCLTech said it also has a “comprehensive” internship program in Romania to help train students and hire them for entry-level technology roles. It is also serving local communities through its corporate as well as employee-driven environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts.
