Mumbai, May 3: BPO major Intelenet has announced its intentions to hire as many as 7,000 personnel in India in 2010.
"The IT sector is expected to grow at 15-20 per cent and so is the BPO sector. With the US economy back on the recovery path, we expect double-digit growth as against four-seven per cent last fiscal. We are, hence, planning to expand our business and hire more people. We plan to hire 7,000 personnel across the country this year," Intelenet CEO Susir Kumar said.
The leading BPO services provider operates its BPO arm under BSE-listed Sparsh BPO.
The company, which already has offices in the US, Poland, the Philippines, Mauritius, the UK and Australia, is also keen on extending its global footprint.
"The emerging markets such as the Middle-East, China and Latin America have tremendous potential. We are planning to open a few offices there. Besides, we are also looking at expanding our domestic operations to Tier II and III towns," Kumar informed.
