IT services provider HCL Technologies today said it will hire 5,000 people this year.
"We will hire 5,000 people for our expansion during the calendar 2010," HCl Technologies CFO Anil Chanana said.
The company said that it will go for a wage hike in July this year, the beginning of its fiscal year.
"We will certainly look at our compensation structure to make it competitive, we will go for wage hike as industry is bouncing back and deals are back on track," Chanana added.
IT bellwether Infosys has already announced 14 per cent wage hike.
