BENGALURU: L&T Infotech, which recently revamped its brand identity as LTI, plans to recruit 1,500-2,000 freshers for its projects in India, the company’s managing director and CEO Sanjay Jalona told Express. This is a significant number for the company, which has 21,000 employees in the country. This is also a notable move as it comes at a time when many IT companies are in the news for downsizing teams.

The company would also consider opening new centres in Hyderabad or Delhi, depending on the requirement. At present, LTI is present in four locations in India— Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune and Mumbai. According to Jalona, the hiring pattern in the IT sector would witness a change thanks to technological advancements. “With the technology moving fast, nobody can hire two years in advance like we used to hire. You will see more and more people going just in time.”

The company, which has created its new brand identity to signify a synergy of new technologies, will be focusing on five broad themes: Data analytics, digital, automation, Internet of Things and cloud services.
Jalona said the company had to revamp the brand as the fundamentals of their business had seen a metamorphosis. “L&T Infotech signifies what we did 20 years ago but not what we do today. What we are selling as IT products had fundamentally changed and who we are selling to has changed with the advent of exponential technologies. We needed a brand refreshment as we felt our brand was behind our capabilities.”

At present, digital technologies constitute 28 per cent of the company’s revenues. While today, 80 per cent is traditional technology (like Java etc) and 20 per cent new technology, by 2025, 70-80 percent of what companies are investing in, would be the newer technologies, he added.
