Sunnyvale, CA and Noida, India – October 30, 2015 — HCL Technologies, a leading global IT services company, received the 2015 Governor’s NCWorks Award of Distinction as an “Outstanding Employer” in the state of North Carolina, an honor given to just one company a year. HCL was nominated and selected by the Capital Area Workforce Development Board for its contributions to the economy and improved workforce development opportunities in the Business Triangle community.
Some of those contributions include HCL’s pre-employment boot camp for Help Desk positions at Wake Technical Community College, which was the first pre-employment training developed and executed in the state.
“HCL is a great corporate partner that understands the importance of a well-trained, highly-skilled workforce to its customers and to North Carolina’s economy,” said North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory. “By working with NCWorks to help train and grow the state’s highly skilled workforce, HCL is contributing to both local and regional communities, as well as the larger U.S. economy.”
“As the only company to receive the ‘Outstanding Employer’ award in 2015, HCL is proud and humbled to be recognized for its work in the state,” said John Gaunt, executive vice president, Human Resources HCL Technologies. “North Carolina is one of the most promising business regions in the U.S., and it’s gratifying to play a role in its continued growth. Through strong partnerships with the state and regional organizations like the Capital Area Workforce Development Board, we’ve been able to help promote and support STEM education and build a highly-skilled workforce for the region and the country. We look forward to continued collaboration and investment in the region for years to come.”
The award was formally presented at a banquet on October 29, 2015 as part of the 2015 NCWorks Partnership Conference in Greensboro. Criteria for nominations included demonstrating involvement and commitment to workforce development; providing a quality workplace for employees through training opportunities, employee benefits, volunteer encouragement, and professional development; demonstrating willingness to hire veterans and community giving.
With more than 10,000 employees across 42 states, HCL’s business in America contributes over 50 percent of the company’s global revenues. In September 2014, HCL announced expanded operations in its Cary Global Delivery Center and is on track to create a total of 1,237 jobs by the end of 2018.
