What is the outlook for Capgemini’s hiring in 2024?

In 2025, the company maintains a positive long-term outlook to train over 100,000 employees in genAI tools in the next 12 months. Employees in India account for more than half of the total workforce of Capgemini globally. Despite the volatile macroeconomic indicators, India is one of the key pillars of growth that drives Capgemini’s strategies. Capgemini’s genAI platform called rAise will be built and developed by the Indian team and the company is relying significantly on genAI to upskill its employees as it plans to invest €2 billion in this technology over the next three years. 

Why did Capgemini experience a decrease in its employee headcount in 2024?

In just the first two months of 2024, more than 170 IT companies laid off more than 42,400 employees. Capgemini has over 340,000 employees, with more than 57% based in offshore locations. Currently, Capgemini has 175,000 employees in India, after dropping offshore and onshore employees by 10,000 in 2024. The reason behind the fall is the over-hiring that took place in the preceding years. The company adopted a stable hiring approach in 2023-2024, given the challenging economic environment in India post-pandemic.

What role does India play in driving Capgemini’s growth strategies?

The key areas where this European tech major is planning to invest are talent acquisitions, talent reskilling, and creating a center of excellence (CoE) as more than 50% of Capgemini’s AI talent is in India. With more than 300 projects being carried out on the GenAI front, Capegmini’s plans to achieve scale in the Indian market recognize the growth opportunities in this sector. This strategic focus aligns with Capgemini’s broader goal of expanding its presence and operations in India.

While there are no updates on the number of hires planned for the Indian workforce in 2025; India’s CEO Ashwin Yardi said, “We are going to campus this year too, but we’re still evaluating what those numbers would be. The numbers will be moderated.”
