As per a statement by the company, "Infosys said these 500 new employees are part of the company's broader workforce commitment and its recent announcement to hire 12,000 additional workers in the country, bringing its total commitment to 25,000 roles." 

Earlier in 2017, Infosys had committed to hiring 10,000 American workers over two years, and had also created 13,000 jobs in the US. According to Live Mint report, Infosys had opened its Digital Innovation and Design Center in Rhode Island last year.

In the past three years, Infosys has set up six 'Technology and Innovation Centres' in the US across Indiana, North Carolina, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Texas, and Arizona. Giving further information on the new hiring, Infosys said the new employees will work on a variety of tech-focused roles. Also its recently launched 'Reskill and Restart' program will be among the channels that will be used to recruit and train employees.

"The new program started by Infosys is aimed at reskilling workers who have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It begins with an aptitude and skills assessment, followed by curated job-specific skills training, and culminates in matching them with available positions," the statement added. 

Meanwhile, Infosys President Ravi Kumar said "Rhode Island's strong leadership, positive business climate, and innovative spirit are exactly what Infosys looks for in a host community. We are excited to increase our commitment to the State and continue nurturing design-focused specialists, as well as tech talent to serve the needs of our clients in the US."

"I'm grateful for their contributions to our state, including this commitment to 500 additional tech jobs by 2023, recent work to launch the 'CRUSH COVID RI' application that is helping get the pandemic under control, and participation in Back to Work RI," she added.

At the end of the June 2020 quarter, Infosys had 2,39,233 employees.
