Larsen & Toubro, an Indian multinational engaged in EPC projects, Hi-Tech manufacturing, and services, has witnessed a three-fold increase in hiring freshmen. The company has onboarded more than 3,000 graduate and postgraduate engineering trainees (GETs and PGETs) in FY23 as compared to 1,067 in FY22.
Further, the number of female engineers hired by the company has more than quadrupled, from 248 in FY22 to 1,009 in FY23. It is worth noting that 30% of the current batch of fresh engineers are women. Women employees comprise 7.6% of the total workforce at L&T, and they have already successfully forayed into fields long considered to be male bastions.
Speaking on the development, Dr. C. Jayakumar, Executive Vice President and Head, Corporate Human Resource, Larsen Toubro, said, ” We went to the market to address our additional business requirement and got an overwhelming response from fresh engineers. Over 80,000 applications have come from pan-India, and it is indeed heartening to note that Brand L&T’s aspirational value continues to grow among young engineers.”
