HCL Infosystems’ exit from PC manufacturing and the ongoing organisational restructuring have prompted many staff to post resumes on job portals. In the past one month, there has been a substantial rise in the number of resumes with ‘active’ status on job portals. According to a director at a third-party staffing firm, there were around 2,500 active resumes in just one job portal that have been updated in the last 15 days and over 3,300 that were updated in the last one month. “It’s quite a large number for a company of that size,” said the director, requesting anonymity.
“HCL Infosystems is now giving a push in managed services and cloud-related services. And typical to any restructuring, where focus is towards optimisation and focus to newer areas, there will be a few redundancies and overlaps that will come in terms of functions and skillset,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief analyst & CEO, Greyhound Research. “And this is very much expected, especially at HCL Info that has been under pressure from revenues and sales perspective,” he added.
