PepsiCo India asks a few employees to move to IBM
Beverage company PepsiCo has asked its employees from its Indian unit to move to IBM Global Services, to whom it has outsourced some of its operations, or quit, said informed sources.
 
The sources said PepsiCo has outsourced its IT operations to IBM and wants to shift its employees from the IT, administration and accounts departments to IBM’s office at Chennai from their current base at Gurgaon.
 
However, when contacted, the company denied any such move. Mrinal Kanti Dey, general manager, corporate communications, PepsiCo India, said, “As per my knowledge, no one from the IT department or any other department has been asked to shift to Chennai and no one has shifted from any of the departments.”
 
While outsourcing was a trend more evident among foreign companies, it is slowly catching the fancy of India-based companies too. Companies like Bharti Airtel and Idea Cellular have outsourced some of their operations to other companies in the past.
 
Bharti group had outsourced network management, IT operations and call centre operations for its mobile services to four different global majors. Idea Cellular had outsourced its IT operations to IBM Global Services.
