Infosys Announces New Digital Development Centre In The Toronto Region

Posted in Commentary with tags on August 25, 2021 by itnerd

Infosys today announced that it will establish a new digital development centre at its largest Canadian office in Mississauga. This is aimed at creating 500 high quality jobs in the Toronto Region over the next three years.

Spanning nearly 50,000 square feet and bringing significant investment from Infosys to the country, this digital development centre will train, upskill, and reskill employees in the technologies needed to help Canadian businesses accelerate their digital transformation. It will also enable Infosys to better collaborate with clients to develop cross-functional solutions to pressing business challenges. Infosys, in the Toronto Region, currently serves businesses in the financial services, healthcare, communications, retail, and natural resources sectors. Artificial intelligence, data science, automation, and machine learning are the core capabilities that this centre would nurture and expand.

In response to surging demand for training, re-skilling, and learning by employers, Infosys previously committed to double its Canadian workforce to 4,000 employees by 2023. The digital development centre will play a key role in this expansion and lead the building of digital capabilities and training for the next generation of IT talent to support Canadian businesses.

While the digital development centre is the first of its kind in Canada for Infosys, it is based on the proven model of six similar digital centres in the U.S. which hire from local colleges and provide training and digital career paths. Infosys’ unique training and education infrastructure builds a tech-savvy and agile workforce with the skills and experience that clients need to become fully digital businesses.

Infosys has seen exponential growth in Canada and is firmly committed to strengthening its presence and hiring top tech talent across major hubs. Within the last two years, Infosys has created thousands of jobs across Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal, and most recently, Calgary. The company hires graduates from 14+ local post-secondary educational institutions, such as the University of Toronto and University of Waterloo, to build a strong pipeline of tech talent. In 2021, it was recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Canada, according to Glassdoor.

The launch of this digital development centre and accompanying jobs commitment were announced at the virtual Infosys Canada C-Suite Forum today where executives shared strategies to reshape business for resilience and success in the post-pandemic world.
