Fueled by Our People

For 44 years, HCL’s incredible business momentum and impact in society have been fueled by our people-centric culture. One of the key ingredients of that culture is a value known as ideapreneurshipTM – where brilliant ideas and entrepreneurial spirit come together from all levels of the company, unleashing a special energy that runs through our 150,000+ HCLites.

This pervasive innovation culture is an honored license that allows us to reach new heights, discover new and better ways of doing things, and partner with people in a trusting way to break through challenges. Our commitment to the planet and the communities we live in is backed by the “Power of One” conviction that we can make a difference. Our commitment to our clients is embodied in deep relationships in which we go beyond our contractual obligations, our clients’ expectations, and even our own assumptions about what we are able to deliver.
