The Solution Delivery Practice works across sectors and pools industry experts, functional/technical and technology specialists along with search consultants.
India has been the most preferred destination for global captive centers / global in-house centers (GICs). In terms of the number of offshore centers, India accounts for near 50% of the world, and in terms of employment, India’s market share surges to as high as 80%.
But things are changing, with cost and diversification guiding global organizations to look to growth outside the popular Indian destinations. Some are turning to competing offshore locations like Manila and Krakow, while some are increasingly tapping nearshore centers like Jacksonville, Birmingham, Tampa and Belen. Those who want to continue with India are looking at tier-2 locations to expand their operations. Cities such as Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Coimbatore, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Visakhapatnam are the new favourites.
Symphoni HR is ahead of the curve – led by our Offshoring and Shared Services (OSS) Practice – which actively manages search mandates for more than 15 clients currently. Our Sector and Practice specialists come from IT and BPM outsourcing companies, search firms as well as core sector and product companies.

IT mandates are led by our Technology Services Group (TSG).
Tech services continue to grow as more sectors integrate cutting-edge technologies into their business processes, the world moves to automation and artificial intelligence, businesses start using blockchain for contracts and in other areas, and the IT ownership model evolves into a service one. Global technology market spending has grown to USD 3.8 trillion from pprox.. USD 2.8 Trillion in the past 5 years, and this trend is only going to accelerate.
India, already a major global exporter of IT services – will also participate in the global growth. The Indian IT industry market size – at near $150 Billion in 2019, is expected to nearly double to USD 300 Billion 2025. India has already become the digital capabilities hub of the world with around 75% of global digital talent present in the country.
