HCL Technologies – Why Work For Us?

At the dawn of the new millennium, a unique information technology company was born: HCL Technologies.

Businesses across industries stand at an inflection point today. Far-reaching disruption fuelled by technologies like Digitalization, Analytics, Cloud, loT and Automation mean these technologies lie at the core of any enterprise that is trying to reinvent itself. As the demand for these services increase, HCL Technologies is accelerating its evolution into a next-generation technology services firm through our Mode 1-2-3 strategy.
We believe that real value lies in the relationship created between customer and provider, which is built on three deeply rooted value systems:

We put Employees First, empowering them to believe in everyday ideas that create immense value for our customers, making HCL Technologies the world's largest Ideapreneurship™.

• Our fixation on Value Centricity is dedicated to delivering more value for our clients, putting their interests ahead of ours and delivering value that goes beyond the contract.
• Our belief in Trust, Transparency and Flexibility drives us to step into our customers' business reality, guaranteeing outcomes with great enthusiasm. At HCL Technologies, our striving is continuously towards building long-term, value-centric relationships with our customers.

At HCL, innovation is not just another word, it’s part of our organizational heritage and DNA - a journey that began in 1976 and continues to power us ahead even today. The culture at HCL Technologies – ideapreneurship™ as we call it - makes the license to ideate a distinctive organizational capability.

HCL’s vibrant intrapreneurial culture is giving rise to institutional and grass-root programs that help in seeding ideas, nurturing creativity and harvesting innovation:

Value portal: This initiative is meant to recognize and reward individuals and teams who can create a niche for themselves and their customers by focusing on generating extra value. Value Portal has generated over 67,000 + innovative ideas for over 400 customers with 31,000 + unique contributors.

Good Practices Conference (GPC): The conference provides a platform for Ideapreneurs to share their innovations and improvisations in the form of discussion papers and contribute to organizational growth.

MAD JAM: MAD Jam is the integral piece of the innovation engine at HCL that recognizes and celebrates outstanding, employee-led innovations for customers. To date, MAD Jam has helped over 2700 outstanding innovators share their best ideas for innovation and transformation.

IPM: This unique platform has the sole aim to create a unified Patent Policy under the Ideapreneurship umbrella to reward and recognize employees for their work which they believe to be patentable and thereby participate in achieving patent status

For more than 4 decades, HCL has been on the forefront of employing and empowering women. This year in 2019, HCL is delighted to partner with International Women’s Day for the first time. The role which IWD plays is a critical one, helping to amplify the still considerable gaps which exist today for organizations such as ours to help create and sustain a more balanced and diverse world.

Over 24% of our workforce today comprises of women. And we have consistently and consciously furthered this cause through various in-organization initiatives as well as creating a larger social environment that facilitates gender-equal workspaces. While worldwide, women are doing great in all other fields of work right now, imagine how great it will be when more women start to work in technology fields and bring new perspectives and ideas to the table. Towards this, presence of women role models plays a key role.

HCL has been very active in spotlighting the critical role that women play in the technology industry through its own Red Ladder Initiative that Celebrates, Advocates, and Fosters Women Leadership. The program identifies and recognizes top-performing and high potential Women Leaders, and leverages them as role models for other aspiring women — and men — in STEM fields. The initiative, is a winner of Stevie’s Award for Women in Business 2017, in the category of “Women Helping Women”.

Yet, there is a long way to go to forge the true balance for better. Each year IWD works tirelessly to push this agenda forward, to challenge stereotypes and bias, to encourage organizations to implement progressive policies, and promoting the importance of having an inclusive work culture. While March 8, 2019, was a significant celebration pushing for a #BalanceforBetter, HCL will work alongside IWD for the coming year to drive progress in these critical areas.

At HCL, we place the spotlight on the employees and enable them to spearhead transformation. HCL is one such place, where the passions and ambitions of the employees are recognized, understood, honed and empowered for them to attain their fullest potential.

Our straightforward recruitment process aims to provide the candidate a top-notch experience where we try to know them better.

HCL’s Mode 1-2-3 strategy helps future proof our customers' business, by deploying a concurrent, three-point spotlight on the existing core of their business, new growth areas as well as the ecosystems of the future.

At HCL, we believe in developing our ecosystem which includes both environment and community, engaging with diverse communities enables us to collaborate with them to ‘rebalance’ resources for the future.

HCL Foundation (HCLF), established in 2011, as a not-for-profit organization, seeks to engage with various stakeholders to bring about developmental changes in a holistic manner.. HCL Foundation has committed Rs. 1 billion towards CSR initiatives over the next five years.

    Pl SQL Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HCL Technologies (Bengaluru) in December 2016.


    I came for interview today at mentioned venue but later I was told that my resume is not fit for the profile.

    I waited for 1.5 hr and then i was told that I am working on Oracle ERP so my candidature will not be considered, I told the person that Oracle ERP backend primarily works on PL/SQL still i was asked to leave.

    Just wanted to know that HCL doesnt do resume screening when we send it at the first hand ?
    Does it just sends the call letter on the basis of information provided ?

    I came to HCL postponing my other scheduled meetings.

    It was a very disappointing experience with HCL today.
