IT major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Wednesday said most of its hirings are happening in Tier-I and Tier-II cities.
The Mumbai-headquartered software services provider is recruiting 55,000 people during the current fiscal year and has issued 25,000 offer letters so far. The acceptance level of job offers for the company is currently at 72 per cent.
"Most of the hirings are happening in Tier-I and Tier-II cities. It is more about the location for which we are hiring the people," TCS executive vice president and global head-HR Ajoy Mukherjee told reporters in Mumbai.
The Tata Group firm said recruitment through new digital channels like Facebook and LinkedIn had reduced the amount of hiring for the company by third-party recruiters.
"We are piloting more digital training internally and we can extend this to campus hiring. We are using Facebook network for hiring purposes. In fact, it has helped us do more and more hiring in a direct manner, rather than depending on external agencies for the same," he added.
"Today, the entire hiring process has undergone a massive change. There is no paper work, rather we have a portal and aspiring people come in and register their names at the portal," Mr Mukherjee said.
"Then they take up the platform to undergo online test and other recruitment-related processes. We have taken it up to the colleges," he further said.
"We have roped in external agencies, too, for hiring purposes. But, we are doing that in case of recruitment at senior levels only."
