HCL wins NASSCOM HR Award
NASSCOM EXemplary Talent (NExT) Practices Awards were established in 2011 to recognize innovative talent initiatives that are geared towards business needs of the Indian IT-BPO sector and the future readiness for its talent pool. HCL won this based on our commitment to being a Socially Responsible Business, for which we are on track to hire 10,000 local HCLites in Europe and US; in addition to this, our current presence in 31 countries and the fact that in 19 of these countries we have more than 50 percent local workforce. This figure of local workforce is 80 percent if we consider senior leadership in all countries where we are present.
Our balanced global presence is fueled by a three-pronged approach of:
- Mergers and Acquisitions
- Local Hiring
HCL submitted the nominations supported by strong case studies and emerged as a winner in the 'Glocalisers' category. The participation was open to all members and non-members of NASSCOM. All participating companies had to submit a case to support their nomination/s and entries were shortlisted by NASSCOM and their knowledge partner Mercer. The shortlisted companies were then invited to present their nomination/s to an independent Jury in the final round in Bangalore.
Every year, the NASSCOM NExT awards aim to pick up key themes that are likely to play a crucial role in the Indian IT-BPO industry maintaining its leadership position in the global market and also to recognize unique HR initiatives by industry players.
