Capgemini is focussing on upskilling talent and expanding its capabilities in India.
Capgemini has also hired 9,500 people, including freshers, in the first half of 2020. The company plans to meet its target of hiring 24,000 employees in India by 2020.
The IT major had recently launched Next, an AI-enabled digital learning platform to address all employee development needs.
