Indian IT major has signed a multi-year partnership with the State of Rhode Island to establish an Infosys Design and Innovation Hub and it will also hire 500 American workers in Rhode Island over the next five years, said a statement. Earlier this year, Infosys committed to hiring 10,000 American workers over the next two years. Today’s announcement is a continuation of Infosys’ commitment.

These new hires in Rhode Island will include experienced designers, design architects, specialists in information design and technical experts to accelerate digital transformation of Infosys’ clients in Rhode Island and beyond, said Infosys.

The Design and Innovation Hub, which intends to apply for Qualified Jobs and Rebuild Rhode Island incentives, will offer early-career designers and design graduates training opportunities with in-demand digital skills including exposure to systems, platforms, strategy and organisation domains.

By studying everything from user-experience to how people interact with systems, these design-focused hires will be equipped to create fully realised, 360-degree solutions to business challenges. Built on a model of interdisciplinary collaboration, the Hub will facilitate interactions between early-career designers and working professionals and technical experts in such fields as architecture, engineering, data science and business consulting, said Infosys.

Infosys claimed that more than 4.7 million students, over 13,000 teachers, and 21,000 schools across America have benefited from computer science training and equipment funded through its foundation. The Foundation has provided multiple grants to teachers and schools across Rhode Island — to date, grants made by the foundation have reached 930 students, 20 teachers and 18 schools across the state.

“Today’s partnership with Rhode Island marks another important step forward for Infosys in the United States. The state’s educational institutions, design-rich environment, and economic development tools, positioned Rhode Island competitively for this type of specialist partnership,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys.

“This will enhance our ability to provide design-driven, digital technologies across the country and enable breakthrough innovations at the intersection of industry and design for our clients,” he added.
