Thus, it sought the optimal utilization of its existing tech workforce in India and the Philippines. The company wanted to create a flexible tech workforce with increased productivity and versatility. It intended the best possible use of resources across skills by letting employees gain expertise and competence in at least one skill set besides their core skills.
