It will house diverse specialist teams in financial services, engineering, digital, cloud, AI, and more. 

Empowering local communities

In addition to fostering a collaborative and engaging work environment, Capgemini has pledged approximately Rs 3 crore of the investment to the development of neighbouring government schools.

The effort aims to support and empower local communities, further demonstrating Capgemini’s dedication to enhancing the well-being of the regions in which it operates.
