PUNE, India, DETROIT and LONDON, February 24 /PRNewswire/ --

- Retraining of employees adds to work force stability

INCAT, a Tata Technologies company and a global leader in Engineering Services Outsourcing (ESO) and Product Development IT services, today announced that the Company's worldwide work force has surpassed 4,000 employees.

INCAT employees work throughout India and the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, and North America, providing engineering, design and enterprise solutions in SAP and Sibel CRM systems, as well as other consultancy services to the world's most ambitious automotive and aerospace manufacturers and their suppliers.

Our organization has realized unprecedented growth within the past two years, said Milind Kaulgud, Head of HR -- INCAT Asia-Pacific, who coordinates HR operations and initiatives worldwide. To match the growth of our client portfolio, we have expanded our professional services delivery network by adding more than 1,100 employees in North America, Europe, and India during that period.

The Asia-Pacific region has seen the highest growth in employment for the Company, according to Kaulgud, but the INCAT ESO value proposition requires robust staffing in all regions.

In North America, where the automotive industry is seeing its greatest stress and downsizing, INCAT is focusing on retraining automotive engineering professionals to put their knowledge and experience to work in other industries, including aerospace. INCAT delivers its training with i get it(R), its proprietary, Web-based tool for knowledge management.

In Michigan, the location of the Company's North American headquarters, INCAT is a licensed training provider through the MichWorks No Worker Left Behind program, an initiative of the State of Michigan, and is currently offering a cross-training program for displaced automotive designers seeking to apply their skills to aerospace design.

INCAT also participates in the MichWorks Incumbent Worker Program, for companies seeking to retrain their current work force in new engineering and design software applications, to avoid downsizing, secure new projects and increase productivity.

INCAT has established a leadership position worldwide for engineering professionals who seek opportunities for both personal growth and career development, Kaulgud added. We have become an aspirational organization, attracting and retaining the industry's very best professionals by creating an environment that offers challenge, values individual skills, puts the latest technologies into the hands of our engineers, and fosters performance excellence.
