Capgemini will be a mainly offshore based supplier by 2015

Capgemini will have over half of its employees in offshore locations such as India by 2015, as it continuously pushes offshore.

In a presentation given at its results the company revealed its plan. See the picture for details.

In 2011 it had 44,000 staff offshore out of 119,000 in total, with 35,000 in India. Today it has 123,000 employees with 48,000 offshore, over 40,000 of which are in India. But it plans to increase its workforce to 155,000 in 2015 with a massive 80,000 offshore.

This year the company has recruited 9,264 workers in India and 2844 in other offshore locations.

The company is not planning to lay off its onshore staff but it seems that new hires will be made offshore.

See the presentation here.

I suppose everyone tries to be IBM, which has a huge India based workforce Over 100,000 according to some.

" seems that new hires will be made offshore."

This is a common pattern e.g. ask companies like TCS how many UK staff they've actually hired, as opposed to taking UK workers on under TUPE and firing them as soon as possible to be replaced by offshore workers.

Given the amount of work (=jobs) the fat consultancies like Cap Gemini and TCS are stripping from the UK IT industry (including work paid for by the UK taxpayer), why does anybody still believe we need yet more graduates with IT skills? There aren't even enough jobs for the current generation, either within the industry or trying to join the industry.
