Dell to Double Outsource Staff in India

Mar 20, 20061 min

In the next three years, Dell plans to double the number of its employees in India to 20,000, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal that quotes Michael Dell.

It appears, says the Journal, that the world’s largest personal computer maker is beefing up its presence in one of the world’s fastest-growing markets.

Most of the new hiring will be made at the company’s call centers. However, there will also be substantial recruitment at its product testing center and a possible manufacturing plant, the Journal reports.

Dell also hopes to set up a manufacturing center in India, a move that could help boost the sale of Dell computers there.
