Global IT services company DXC Technology said that half of approximately 5,000 campus graduates that it has hired in India this year are women.
The new women joiners come from leading institutes and engineering campuses across India to begin their professional careers across a variety of technology disciplines with DXC, one of the leading IT and consulting services providers.
“DXC’s diversity charter is core to its success. We are committed to building our future by collaborating with the right talent and furthering a culture which rewards diverse strengths and merit,” said Nachiket Sukhtankar, managing director, India, DXC.
“Bringing on board 500 skilled women colleagues in a single day reinforces our belief in the value of diversity,” Sukhtankar said.
The company said it plans to increase the number of graduate hires next year with the aim to ensure the right representation and talent pool required to serve customers.
“We strongly believe that an inclusive culture powers better business results,” said Lokendra Sethi, vice president and India Human Resources leader, DXC.
“As diversity is one of the cornerstones of our growth strategy, our future success depends on how we leverage our collective and diverse talents and strengths.”
DXC has reported revenue of $4.502 billion during the first quarter fiscal 2021. Net loss was $199 million for the first quarter including $72 million in restructuring costs, $110 million in transaction and separation costs and $148 million in amortization of acquired intangibles.
DXC Technology in March said it will sell its healthcare technology business to private equity firm Veritas Capital for $5 billion in cash, Reuters reported.
DXC in November last year said it will explore options for three of its non-core assets, including its U.S. State and Local Health and Human Services business.
The company will retain its healthcare business that includes servicing customers from life sciences firms.
