HCL Technologies has announced the launch of their campus at MIHAN in Nagpur, which was inaugurated by Nitin Gadkari, Minister for Road Transport & Highways, Shipping and Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation and Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
The state of the art 50-acre HCL campus in Nagpur aims to create more than 2,000 jobs after starting operations at the centre. HCL’s foray in Nagpur is driven by quality local talent pool in the city and scalable infrastructure.
Speaking at the launch, Nitin Gadkari said, “Nagpur has emerged as a significant talent hub over the few years and we are pleased to be a part of the launch celebrations of the HCL campus in Mihan. The state of the art HCL campus would offer locals an opportunity to develop global careers right in their own city, without having a need to migrate from their hometown.”
The creation of the centre in Nagpur is in line with HCL’s strategic vision to expand and create opportunities in smaller cities across India. Nagpur has developed as a pivotal talent hub over the last few years, thereby promising a sustainable pipeline of high quality talent.
Gracing the occasion, Devendra Fadnavis said, “The Maharashtra government is committed to economic development and providing more opportunities to the young workforce of the State. The HCL campus in Mihan will offer a great platform to local talent in the city providing them growth opportunities.”
Once the MIHAN centre becomes operational, it will deliver a spectrum of services including infrastructure management, application development, product engineering, BPO, IT services management and HCL’s internal enabling functions.
Sanjay Gupta, Executive Vice President, HCL Technologies said, “HCL has always been at the forefront of bringing new avenues across strata and geographies. With the launch of the HCL Campus in MIHAN, we hope to reach out to the local talent, unlock immense potential, enhance their skills and prepare them for Global IT careers. By optimization of the skilled talent resource available in the city through the HCL Nagpur Campus, we aim to put Nagpur on the global IT map.”
Apart from giving opportunities to both engineering and non-engineering graduates, this centre also aims to have a gender equal workforce, and giving women returning to work after a break an opportunity to utilize their skills sets and contribute meaningfully towards a bright future by working with a global IT company.
