Chandigarh, Sep 4: According to reports, Tata Consultancy services is planning on hiring 25,000 employees globally in 2009, out of which 90 per cent would be hired from India.
The country's largest employer which is aiming at a 10 billion dollar revenue mark for the coming years is planning on hiring significantly large number of employees.
The IT leader is eyeing Government projects and hopes to raise the revenue for these projects to at least 10 per cent of our total revenue in the next three years.
"Tier II cities are our only focus for expansion in the country as the top rung are clogged and saturated for space. We will be hiring 25,000 people this year, which means roughly 25 lakh sq ft of work space required and therefore, we need to grow outside the metros, wherever we find the most compelling reason to be," Tanmoy Chakrabarty, Vice-president and head government industry solutions unit said.
However, this is 10,000 less that previous year's recruitment numbers.
