Celebrating a Decade of Relationships, Growth and Innovation
HCL started its journey in the Nordics from Stockholm, Sweden in 2008 and since then we have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship where we focused on innovating together. We helped enterprises re-imagine and transform their businesses for the digital age. Following our vision to strive and exceed our customer’s expectations and be the best IT services provider in Europe ensured our partnerships with 4 out of the 6 of the F500 companies in the region. Nordic region has today transformed into a major growth engine for HCL and is already our second largest European market in terms of employee numbers.
We now have 36 Delivery Centers in Europe including 12 Delivery Centers in the Nordics consisting of 2 in Norway and 1 delivery center in Finland which are spearheading new-age research and technology. It has been a commendable decade of growing relationships, investments, talent, careers and best business practices that has helped us reach this milestone.
Celebrating 10 years of creating career opportunities
HCL has made the highest amount of IT-related investments in the Nordics compared to its Indian competitors. We have hired the best talent in NORDICS, who now constitute 24% of our overall workforce in the European region. We invest in training and talent development programs to build the skills needed for the digital age. Our objective is to collaborate across the Nordics region and build next-generation thinkers and leaders who will complement our disruptive thinking approach and challenge the status quo.
A robust collaboration with our Nordic partners has helped us to increase our footprints in the region. We aim to offer IT services that simplify Technology choices. Our acquisition of Volvo’s IT business added 40 new customers from Nordics, thus creating more opportunities in the region.
Celebrating 10 years of contributing to the economy
Back then the Nordic region was far from immune to the global downturn of 2008-09, but unlike other geographies, it bounced back with growth rates stronger than any other developed nation in the world. Nordics showed rapid growth, creating jobs and gaining a competitive edge and HCL proved to be a prominent partner in this journey by making significant contributions in helping businesses in the region to become more competitive and drive efficiency and growth. Over the years we built a sustainable, multi-billion-dollar business by helping our clients build their own businesses and better serve their customers. We created thousands of jobs in the region while propelling countless careers. Our team in the Nordics is backed by the power of colleagues from around the globe, together with our clients and partners, with a relentless focus on relationships, employees and strategic investments in talent, careers, businesses and the economy. As a result of these values, today more than 50 Nordic customers trust HCL for their business and IT transformation needs.
