EFCS laid the foundation of a unique entrepreneurial culture, which over the years led to the evolution of Ideapreneurship. “Ideapreneurship” is HCL’s culture of grass-roots, business-driven, customer-focused innovation, in which every employee is an “ideapreneur.” This environment is shaped by HCL’s ‘Employees First’ values, which collectively empower and encourage individual employees at all levels of the organization to come up with innovative solutions to operational and customer challenges. It encourages employees to become idea-led intrapreneurs, who can think new ideas and drive them to fruition. These values promote employee behavior that when channeled through and leveraged by formal programs, generates unusual value for customers.

Ideapreneurs drive market leading growth for HCL wherein we have grown 115% in our revenues from the time we have incorporated EFCS in 2005 along with 580% growth in our market cap.

In a growth-constrained, post-recession world where many traditional sources of advantage are becoming irrelevant, the best bet for nations, companies, and individuals to succeed is the power of their ideas. At HCL, we believe that acknowledging such ideas and learning from them is vital as we make progress in today’s environment.

HCL’s vibrant intrapreneurial culture is giving rise to institutional and grass-root programs that help in seeding ideas, nurturing creativity and harvesting innovation – Value Portal, Mad JAM and LeadGen.

The Value Portal has a very strong and robust process of employees committing their ideas relevant for their customers, the ideas going through an approval cycle leading to an approval from the customers and then finally leading to implementation of the ideas. As of today, we have implemented around 7,000 ideas out of 25,000 ideas that got generated through Value Portal with certified business benefit by customers of over $470 million.

LeadGen encourages employees to contribute business opportunities, enabling them to add directly to HCL’s revenue and earn monetary reward with company-wide recognition.There has been a contribution of $200million through this platform.

MAD JAM celebrates outstanding ideas from within HCL that have been implemented for clients.Till date MAD JAM has generated $50 million revenue for HCL.

    Associate Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews. Both with 2 different team managers.
    Got a phone call and was asked basic questions about my background, skills and education. There was a question about what process is followed to log into an online bank account.
    The second phone interview was with a different team manager who had a very bad cold and kept coughing making it very difficult to understand what he was saying/asking. He spent most of the interview trying to explain the position. I guess they wanted someone who they could train so mainly just looked for a person who was open to learning.
