We understand the unique needs of the Gen Z workforce and have tailored our approach to provide an environment where they can thrive and grow.
Through our TechBee program, we engage with the next generation early and provide them with core technology skills on the job and a platform to continue with their education, in the process we gain valuable insights to transform our policies, practices and programs to cater to their expectations.
The Apprenticeship program in the areas of business analysis, new-age technologies, finance, HR, marketing and project management for high school graduates has been recognized as a ground-breaking initiative by leading analyst firm Technology Business Research (TBR).
HCLTech’s people-centric culture fosters productivity and performance in hybrid work environments. We actively listen to our employees through benchmarked surveys and sentiment analysis.
As part of our commitment to inclusivity and flexibility, we provide a work environment and benefits that accommodate every individual’s needs. This approach empowers our people to work on their terms while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
We believe in nurturing talent, embracing emerging work trends and creating a culture that enables every individual to excel and succeed. By fostering a next-gen work environment, we ensure that our people have the opportunities and support they need to thrive in their careers.
Coming out of the university and joining a corporate job can sometimes be a little anxiety-inducing when you are not sure how your theoretical knowledge will be tested in applied aspects. But HCLTech was there the whole way, ensuring that I was ready and able to perform well at my position, providing one-on-one mentorship in my role and making sure that I understand the technology stacks that I am getting my hands on. It allows me to feel confident in the work I am doing.”

TechBee has been a life-changing opportunity for me. This program helped me start my career and brought a positive outlook to my life. The exposure I gained working on global projects has enhanced my skills and knowledge and will serve me well in future.”

We believe that empowering our people with the right skills and experiences is essential for their professional fulfillment and our collective success. Our clients are accelerating the adoption of disruptive and nextgen technologies. To stay ahead in a rapidly evolving technology landscape, we are embracing skill-based talent management and democratizing access to knowledge.
Moving away from role-based learning, we focus on developing next-gen capabilities and talent across a wide spectrum of digital, engineering, cloud and AI technologies. Our learning frameworks embrace the latest technological advancements, from GenAI to ESG-driven technology solutions and 5G/6G applications.
By aligning our recruitment, recognition, progression, reward, learning, performance and staffing processes with skills, we ensure that our workforce is equipped to meet the dynamic demands of our clients. This shift to skill-based learning has also positively impacted internal fulfillment and talent mobility. Over 15% of the demand for key skills is now fulfilled through upskilling .
We are also working to gamify the learning process that will start with employee self-enrollment based on their interest and subsequent deployment in their chosen area. This is another way of giving choice and control to our employees for their upskilling.
The Gen Z talent characteristics have driven changes to two important parts of our approach to talent management—and to our culture overall—in the last several months. First, we’ve redefined skilling as interests led by employee aspirations rather than business or customer requirements. Second, we’ve created a rules-based internal talent marketplace, where employees get to choose their next role and the type of projects they want to work on, based on their overall career progression and ambition.”

I have transitioned from research project management to technology administration and now to a support operations lead. More than a company, HCLTech is my constant school and community!”

Track Lead, HCLTech Brazil
My experience since I started working for HCLTech more than a year ago has been nothing short of extraordinary. I have been able to succeed and learn in a multi-cultural team, interacting on a regular basis with people from various Geos. Thanks to the cooperative and diverse set of co-workers who motivate me every day, I have had the chance to greatly improve my abilities and knowledge. Additionally, HCLTech’s emphasis on work-life balance has given me the freedom to pursue personal interests while performing at the highest level in my position.”

The following initiatives strive to empower our employees, foster excellence at all levels and create an environment where everyone can thrive and grow:
Inspiring managerial excellence
Through 360-degree assessments across all levels, employees have the opportunity to share their “wow” moments enabled by their managers on our internal social network, inspiring managerial excellence.
We convert the feedback received from employees into “badges” earned by managers, recognizing and showcasing their exemplary behavior.
We provide business leaders with dashboards that offer employee feedback, sentiment analysis and listening tools.
We are refreshing our technology, processes and policies to center them around employee experience. This includes intuitive user interfaces, process designs that prioritize employee experience, the adoption of cutting-edge technologies and the utilization of analytics and data science to drive insights and improvements.
We are also reimagining the entire onboarding process to improve the experience for new employees. By streamlining the journey from the offer stage to their first day at HCLTech, we ensure a seamless and engaging transition for our new hiers into our organization.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
Our robust DEI strategy is carefully crafted to ensure that every employee feels included, valued and respected, recognizing the importance of seeing our employees as individuals, fostering a climate free of bias, promoting equity and embracing the unique perspectives and backgrounds of everyone.
To bring our DEI charter to life across the globe, we have established employee resource groups, multicultural groups and a diversity council. Our focus on diversity and inclusion extends to various dimensions, including people of color, women, LGBTQIA+ individuals, people with disabilities (PWD), neurodiversity and mental health.
DEI is deeply ingrained in our business values, influencing not only our hiring strategy but also our talent statistics.
Industry Recognitions for our DEI Efforts
I am a living example of HCLTech’s promise to empower lives. After my accident, HCLTech made me feel I could still live independently - the entire campus is accessible. From my job interview onwards, I’ve never been allowed to feel different. Here ‘inclusion and diversity’ are not mere words on the corporate agenda; they’re part of the company’s culture.”
Deputy Manager, Digital Foundation Service HCLTech India
HCLTech’s culture has been a remarkable aspect of my experience as an LGBTQIA+ individual within the workspace. The notable part is the respect and acceptance I have consistently received from everyone I engage with daily. I am embraced for who I am, cultivating an environment where I can truly be myself.”

Employee Benefits and Incentives
We prioritize the well-being and satisfaction of our employees by offering a comprehensive range of benefits and incentives that enhance their overall work experience.
People Engagement with ESG/CSR initiatives
We believe in the power of our people to supercharge progress for our communities and the planet. Our people don’t just engage in our CSR efforts, they drive them. We tackle issues that deeply matter to our employees and where we have unique expertise.
Through our commitment to ESG, reflected in our Act, Pact and Impact initiatives, we empower employee volunteering, supported by policies and a strong culture of community contribution. By aligning their interests with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we tap into the talents and time of our employees to create a lasting impact.
We recognize the vital contributions of women in technology, and we celebrate their achievements. “She Powers Progress” shines a spotlight on the inspiring women who are creating value for our organization and supercharging progress for our clients.
We firmly believe that supporting women is a collective effort to foster progress and inclusivity. By empowering women in technology, we are driving innovation, unlocking new perspectives and amplifying the collective impact of our organization.
We are showcasing inspiring stories of the next generation of women in technology. Through our #SheTheFuture campaign, we highlight the achievements of young women who are making their mark in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. By sharing these stories, we inspire and pave the way for a new era where more girls aspire to pursue careers in STEM.
To all the women and young girls out there, I’d like to say, never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something because you’re a woman; work hard to disprove their claims. When you have a dream, you must grasp it and hold on to it no matter what, because nothing is impossible for those who try.”
Software Engineer, Digital Business, HCLTech India
My advice to young women in STEM is to live a life of continual education. This is probably also applicable to other fields, but for technology specifically, in such a dynamic and changing field it is important to always be learning new concepts and skills to not only stay competitive, but also to expand your base of knowledge.”
