Management hopes to manage the demand and supply mismatch in the next 2-3 quarters through increased hiring. For senior level, wage hikes would be rolled out in April, 2022 and impact of the same should neutralise by operational efficiencies and increase in volumes.

  • Company is winning increased number of transformation and platform led deals which is driving growth in media while healthcare is being driven by digital and connect health engagements. Within media, expansion into newer geographies like the Middle East, Africa, India and Latin America has aided growth tremendously.
