HCL Technologies, a leading global IT services company, has received the 2015 Governor’s NCWorks Award of Distinction as an “Outstanding Employer” in the state of North Carolina, an honor given to just one company a year.

HCL was nominated and selected by the Capital Area Workforce Development Board for its contributions to the economy and improved workforce development opportunities in the Triangle business community.

Some of those contributions include HCL’s pre-employment boot camp for Help Desk positions at Wake Technical Community College, which was the first pre-employment training developed and executed in the state.

“HCL is a great corporate partner that understands the importance of a well-trained, highly-skilled workforce to its customers and to North Carolina’s economy,” said North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory. “By working with NCWorks to help train and grow the state’s highly skilled workforce, HCL is contributing to both local and regional communities, as well as the larger U.S. economy.”

John Gaunt, executive vice president, Human Resources HCL Technologies said in a statement, “North Carolina is one of the most promising business regions in the U.S., and it’s gratifying to play a role in its continued growth. Through strong partnerships with the state and regional organizations like the Capital Area Workforce Development Board, we’ve been able to help promote and support STEM education and build a highly-skilled workforce for the region and the country. We look forward to continued collaboration and investment in the region for years to come.”

HCl is located in Sunnyvale, CA, and Noida, India.
