Tech Mahindra on July 4 inaugurated its new campus at Tidel Park in Coimbatore, in line with its plans to expand its footprint into smaller cities and towns to set up talent supply bases.

The IT services major plans to hire 1,000 associates in FY22-23 for this 10,000 sq. ft. campus to tap local talent and provide flexibility to existing associates wanting to work from their hometowns.

Earlier in an interview with MoneycontrolTech Mahindra  CEO and MD CP Gurnani said he won’t be surprised if more than 20 percent of the company’s talent supply comes from tier-2 or tier-3 cities in less than two years.

“…You understand the way Indian systems work. There are kids who will not be able to leave their homes to go to Bangalore or Pune, because of certain social reasons, or girls who will not be able to leave. The moment I increase that supply base, I am able to tap into that talent. And that is what has benefited me by going into these smaller cities,” Gurnani had said.

The new campus will be used to develop technology stack pertaining to Intelligent Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Full-stack development, Customer Experience (CX), and other next-gen Application Development and Management Skills (ADMS).
