Essar’s Aegis plans to increase staff in India by 5,000


In line with its business expansion plans, the company is looking to hire 5,000 people in the country in 2016 and will add another 2,500 in the rest of the world.

Aegis, the business process outsourcing company owned by the Essar Group, has begun partnering with startups on social media products and analytics. For this, it plans to hire 5,000 people in India to tap the growth from the e-commerce, telecom and public sectors.

The business process outsourcing industry has increasingly been talking of working with startups to boost their strategic value to the customers. Experts are expecting social media and analytics to be finalised into deals going forward.

The company shared that the idea is to focus on products and platforms. As they have already tied-up with one Indian startup in the social media space, they are looking at partnering with one more. These are go-to-market partnerships. Increasing demand from the telecom, e-commerce and public sectors are also driving the company’s hiring plans for the year.

The company will also add another 2,500 members to its existing staff in the rest of the world.
