New Delhi: PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) is planning to add 30,000 new jobs in India over next five years, as reported by Economic Times. The company is looking to further build its presence in India and take the employee count to over 80,000 by 2028. This move is followed by the establishment of a new venture between PWC and PWC US to set up new global centres in India and scale up the existing ones that will assist the firm in accelerating and improving the service quality.
The firm currently has over 50,000 employees in India between its Indian practice and the global delivery centres, ET reported. “Our enhanced collaboration between PwC India and PwC US will further accelerate the growth of our global talent footprint and help deliver greater value to our clients. It will also create more opportunities for our people to develop deep technical acumen – all underpinned by quality,” Economic Times quoted Tim Ryan, chair and senior partner, PwC US as saying.
PWC India pledged to boost the economic growth of the nation and tap into the potential of the domestic market and generate more prospects for society as a part of The New Equation global strategy launched in 2021, as reported by the Economic Times.
“We are committed to playing a meaningful role in India’s growth story and are working closely with clients and stakeholders to help solve important problems and create avenues towards a very bright future for our country. Our new venture is just one step forward in this direction and will further attempt to harness India’s vast demographic dividend,” said Sanjeev Krishan, chairperson, PwC in India, as quoted by ET.
