IT Industry Embraces Tier 2 Cities for Growth and Efficiency

The IT sector in India is witnessing a notable shift towards tier 2 and tier 3 cities, driven by factors such as professionals opting to stay in hometowns, cost efficiencies, and access to a broader talent pool. Companies like HCLTech are expanding operations in cities like Madurai and Vijayawada, while firms such as Wipro and Cognizant are leveraging these locations for reduced real estate expenses and lower wages. This trend reflects a broader movement towards hybrid work models and increased emphasis on employee well-being, with co-working spaces and managed offices gaining prominence across the country.
