HCL Technologies will now start recruiting 2,000 engineers for the first phase for its unit in Mihan-SEZ from this weekend onwards. This will be the biggest employer in the SEZ so far.
After acquiring the land in Mihan, the company did not go ahead with the project. For many times, the plans were put on hold due to the global recession of 2008. Last year the company has decided to start the Nagpur project. While HCL has reduced the area from 140 acres to 50 acres.
Sanjay Gupta, HCL vice-president said, “The unit will be operational by January, for which the recruitment will be held on coming Saturday and Sunday”. Those who got selected will undergo six-month training at Noida. He also added that “Initially, we will be recruiting engineers. Out of the 2,000 to be recruited, around half would be at the senior level and rest fresher. The freshers will get a package of Rs2 lakh per annum. At the senior level, it would be according to industry standards”.
The company will be recruiting local talent for the Nagpur unit. Confirming the news Gupta said “The company will be preferring local talent. It is a part of HCL’s long-term plan to source home talent at a center If an employee is from the same city, the chances of retention are more. For the seniors, there are equal growth opportunities in the smaller cities too”.
Out of 50 acres, HCL will only be utilising a patch of 15 acres in the first phase. When asked for the reduce land requirements in Mihan Sanjay said “it was realized that there is no need for such a huge campus. Even after considering future expansion plans, 50 acre are enough for the operations”. The company will now focus on Tier-II cities. HCL has recently opened centers in Lucknow and Madurai.
A lot of work is also happening on latest technologies like Internet of Things, digital and cloud computing. The techies at Nagpur will also get a chance to work on these technologies, said Gupta.
