TCS employs 11,500 in offshore markets

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has employed over 11,500 people outside of India in 2016–2017. The hires included graduates from engineering and B-schools in the US; this as TCS ramps up local hiring in offshore markets to address visa-related challenges. The company recorded 79,000 employees (gross) and 33,380 employees (net), taking its employee base to 387,000 by the end of March. However, the present number is lower than TCS’s hiring from international markets in 2015–16. According to TCS annual report, 16,173 people from international markets joined the company’s workforce in fiscal 2016. TCS is an Indian multinational information technology service, consulting, and business solutions company. It operates in 46 countries including the Philippines.
