HCL Technologies shows door to 450 people in India
An HCL Technologies official told ET that the company had sacked 400 people in Delhi and another 50 in Bangalore in the last one-two months. The firm had earlier asked those on the bench, to get assigned to projects or face the prospect of being asked to leave the firm, he said.
In an email reply, a company spokeswoman didn't comment on the number of people sacked by the company but indicated that the move was linked to the performance of employees. "HCL follows a systematic process of performance review and development, and the expectation of the organization is for employees to meet the stringent performance standards. This is a routine and ongoing process," she said.
As of December 31, 2008, HCL had about 52,957 employees. The global downturn has impacted the revenues of clients of Indian IT companies, thereby dampening demand for software services.
