Tech Mahindra Hired 95% Less Employees In Last 12 Months; Overall Headcount Reduces By 4688 QoQ

Industry-wide hiring slowdown

This follows the industry-wide trend of slowdown in hiring after a year-long rally of record employee addition in the previous fiscal.

Total headcount for FY23 stood at 152,400.

Overall headcount after the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2023 declined by 4,688 QoQ.

New employee addition

In Q3FY23 too, the net new employee addition had declined by 6,844. 

In Q4 last year, Tech Mahindra had added 6,106.

However, attrition has improved, dropping to 15 percent from 17 percent in Q3.


The firm has been seeing a drop in attrition rate since the first quarter of FY23 after a steady increase in the five quarters before that.

Harshvendra Soin, Global Chief People Officer and Head of Marketing at Tech Mahindra said, “Our attrition continues to drop and remain the lowest in the industry.”

Soin added, “In FY23, our main focus was on upskilling. 

While our focus continues on upskilling and providing opportunities to our internal folks, we will increase our fresher hiring significantly this year and put them through our upskilling engine.”

Hiring approach

He expects to increase fresher hiring by about 2-3X in the current fiscal year.

Chief Executive Officer and MD, C P Gurnani, had said that hiring will increase when attrition also rises, and net hiring will be low when attrition begins to decline.

“Hiring cannot always be linear. 

The reality is that AI, data, and automation are part of our lives. 

If it is not linear, revenue goes up. 

If you don’t hire, please do take into account that we are becoming more efficient with automation,” he said.

Net profit

Tech Mahindra reported its Q4FY23 earnings on April 27.

Consolidated net profit stood at Rs 1,125 crore for the March quarter of 2022-23.

This declined by 27 percent from Rs 1,545 crore it reported a year ago.


Revenue from operations came in at Rs 13,718.2 crore, up 13 percent year-on-year.

In constant currency terms, revenue grew only 0.3 percent sequentially.

EBIT margin or operating margin for Q4FY23 dropped to 9.6 percent as compared to 12 percent last quarter.
