Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing, today announced that it plans to add approximately 200 new jobs in the next fiscal year at its Cumberland location in Cobb County, and expects additional expansion in the metro Atlanta area over the next couple of years.

Infosys has identified Atlanta as a strategic hub for growth in the United States. The infrastructure, cosmopolitan culture, and talent available in Atlanta attracted Infosys BPO (its Business Process Outsourcing subsidiary) to set up an onshore operations center to deliver high-end business process services to North American clients. Cobb County offers a secure, easily accessible and central location with world-class space available for large-scale business process operations.

Infosys is committed to job creation in the United States, and today’s announcement underscores its continued investment in its Cumberland location and Georgia. With unparalleled support and guidance from the Cobb Chamber, the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Infosys is working with the local university system and technical colleges to recruit local talent, and also to help improve the education system to equip students with more market-relevant curriculum. Infosys plans additional investment in training and development, with employees also able to leverage the global resources of Infosys award-winning education center in India. Career opportunities are available to support high-end business process services across financial services, insurance, healthcare, retail and legal process management services.

Gautam Thakkar, Vice President and Unit Head Enterprise Services, Infosys BPO said,"It is critical for Infosys to create global hubs of talent, and the Southeast is a key U.S. region with a number of our important clients. We also are impressed with the highly skilled talent pool available in Atlanta, and look forward to our expansion to continue to improve services to our customers.”

The company also is committed to the local community as a whole. For example, the Infosys USA Foundation recently presented a grant to the YWCA of Greater Atlanta’s “Teen Girls in Technology” (TGI Tech) program, which helps middle and high school girls cultivate an interest and competence in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

In addition to Atlanta, Infosys BPO also has a delivery center in Des Moines, Iowa, part of the 19 Infosys locations throughout the United States.

"Infosys is an integral part of metro Atlanta's technology community and we are pleased that it has decided to expand operations here following the opening of their new business center last year," said Hans Gant, Senior Vice President of Economic Development at Metro Atlanta Chamber. "Maintaining our close ties with India and companies like Infosys is central to our growth strategy for the region and it is through collaboration with our partners that these success stories continue to happen. Infosys will create jobs that bolster a key industry for metro Atlanta."

“Georgia has a talent pool with the job skills that business process outsourcing requires,” said Gretchen Corbin, Deputy Commissioner with the Georgia Department of Economic Development. “Thanks to a large existing workforce in this area, and the knowledge workers coming out of our universities, we think Georgia and Atlanta will see more of this kind of activity in the future.”

For Cobb County, the Infosys expansion represents not only desirable new jobs, but also an expanding information technology and software industry and global commerce.

“Cobb County is excited to see one of its global companies expanding,” said Brooks Mathis, Vice President of Economic Development for the Cobb Chamber and Executive Director of Cobb’s Competitive EDGE, a community and economic development strategy for the county. “Infosys is an important asset and corporate partner in our community for many reasons. The company is experiencing phenomenal growth and providing coveted high-paying jobs. Plus on a global scale, Infosys’ investment in Cobb represents growing commercial ties between the U.S. and India.”

This jobs announcement also exemplifies the diversity of industries within the Cumberland submarket and Cobb County. This project is the result of teamwork and strategic partnerships between various agencies. Key members on this project include the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Metro Atlanta Chamber, the Cobb Chamber, and the colleges and universities in Cobb County.
