Infosys announces a major investment offering 500 jobs for Calgary 

Infosys, a leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, recently announced that it will be adding 500 new jobs to Calgary, Alberta as a part of its commitment to double its Canadian workforce to 4,000 by 2023. This expansion of the company to Calgary will be aligning with its vision to solve global challenges today.

“We are thrilled to expand our presence in Canada and advance our commitment to hiring top tech talent across major hubs. Calgary is a natural next step as part of our Canadian expansion and represents a significant and promising market for Infosys. The city is home to a thriving pool of talent that the economic downturn of COVID-19 has impacted. We will tap into this talent and offer critical skills and opportunities that will build on the city’s economic strengths,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys.

In 2017, Infosys lodged its expansion across North America where it hired 13,000 workers across its six Technology and Innovation Centres in the United States. Since then, the brand was able to generate 2,000 jobs in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver, with plans to further expand the country.

Currently, the company has only fewer than 10 employees in Calgary and this expansion will allow Infosys to grow the work they are doing with clients in Canada, Central U.S. and Pacific Northwest in areas involving natural resources, energy, media, retail and communications.

“When I first met Infosys with Mayor Nenshi in 2017, I was certain that Infosys, as a global company that is committed to building local ecosystems and community, would be a game-changer to propel Calgary’s growing tech ecosystem to new levels,” said Mary Moran, President and Chief Executive Officer, Calgary Economic Development. “We are embracing digital transformation in Calgary and Infosys can support companies on their digital journey as they address global challenges like cleaner energy, safe and secure food supplies, safer and more efficient transportation and logistics and better health solutions. “

“Our government is focused on attracting entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors to Alberta. We’ve seen a lot of momentum in tech and this announcement by Infosys is another move in the right direction for our province.  We are focused on developing top talent for employers and creating the most competitive business environment in Canada. Put simply, Alberta is where you want to do business,” said Doug Schweitzer, Alberta Minister of Jobs, Economy and Innovation. 

The brand is eyeing to hire a lot of tech talent from 14 schools in the country, including University of Calgary, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and University of Alberta. Through its ReSkill and ReStart program, the brand is providing an avenue to reskill pathways and address workforce development needs.

“Digital transformation and preparing the workforce of tomorrow is a primary focus for SAIT. It is important to have leading companies like Infosys that have a strong commitment to developing talent locally and offer career paths for graduates,” said Dr. David Ross, President and CEO, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology.
