While talking at the FICCI LEADS 2021 event, he said, “In the early days of the IT services sector, TCS formed relationships with North American companies that were eager to become more efficient. They quickly took advantage of the expanding pool of highly skilled technology talent, but fast forward to today, and the situation has changed drastically,”
