HCL Technologies, the Indian technology company is all set to create at least 200 jobs at its newly launched global delivery centre at Hartford, in Connecticut, US. Overall, it intends to add about 500 people to its team in the region.
The jobs will offer attractive salaries, benefits and high levels of flexibility.
The Company had revealed its intention to establish the Hartford centre in early 2020. The Centre will be equipped with a smart manufacturing lab, which will eventually serve as the main hub for the tech firm’s clients in the region and worldwide.
Today, the Company employs over 22,000 employees across its centres and offices in the US.
Along with insurance, healthcare, life science and aerospace, the Hartford centre will focus on manufacturing to best serve its main client, Stanley Black & Decker, the New Britain-based global manufacturer of tools and storage equipment.
About 500 locals from Connecticut will be employed at the centre over the next two+ years. The new hires will be working in the areas of advanced technology, including Internet of Things, augmented reality (AR), information technology applications, operations tech and digital workspace.
HCL Technologies plans to collaborate with community colleges and universities in Connecticut to improve and enhance the industry. With this objective, the Company is also working to develop a programme aimed at high school students.
The official inauguration of the Centre took place on November 12, in the presence of Ned Lamont, Governor of Connecticut, Luke A Bronin, Mayor of Hartford, C Vijayakumar, CEO, HCL, and James M Loree, CEO, Stanley Black & Decker.
