HCL Technologies – Why Work With Us?

Our shared growth has been driven by our most important asset – our people. Empowered by our culture of ideapreneurship™ which encourages the proactive development of grassroots level innovative solutions to business challenges, our employees take the lead in finding and bringing solutions to fruition.

Our ideapreneurs in the United states are based out of 15 offices and 6 global delivery centers, renowned for in-house innovation programs supported by a global network of co-innovation labs to stay ahead of the technology curve, with competencies in design thinking, blockchain, cybersecurity, cloud native and artificial intelligence, resulting in innovative processes, applications, and platforms for our regional and global customers.

The cornerstone of our success in the United States is our commitment to creating employment and investing in communities from Silicon Valley, to Boston’s 128 tech belt, and major cities and hubs in between. By identifying and hiring the best talent across our multiple U.S. delivery centers, today 64% of our 15,000 strong workforce is locally hired. Our collaborations with 50+ top universities through our campus outreach programs, engaging with soon to be graduates, in career fairs, cultural workshops, technology lectures and management innovation competitions, help us build enduring relationships with the brightest young minds in the US.

The definition and essence of diversity is vast and goes beyond demographic differences including gender, nationality, culture, ethnicity, age, or the differing abilities of individuals. It is about recognizing the differences which exist, harnessing and synergizing them, and creating an environment which is conducive to bring out the best in all.

HCL’s Inclusion & Diversity vision is to reinforce the Employee First philosophy by building an inclusive organization that fosters respect for every individual and celebrates the differences among all employees. We value the experiences, knowledge, and talents of all individuals in our company and communities we operate in. We support and promote non-discriminatory practices for people to participate, contribute, and develop equitably.

The Women Lead Initiative

The Women Lead Initiative is a flagship program designed to promote senior women executives in leadership roles through formal mentorship. Powered by HCL Technologies, the program was pioneered in 2015 to unite a power cohort of successful and influential executive leaders and high potential senior female executives from leading firms across the corporate landscape.

Having already seen the successful implementation of two chapters in Australia in 2015 and then in 2017, we are set to launch maiden chapters for the program in Sweden and the US in this year.
