Wipfli, one of the top 20 accounting and consulting firms in the US has announced that will be increasing its workforce in India by around four times over the next three years. To this end, the company has commissioned a new office for its employees in the Global Village Tech Park, one of Bengaluru’s leading technology centers spread across 40,000 square feet. The new facility consolidates multiple Bengaluru locations into one and allows for better collaboration and integration among employees across India and U.S. In addition, the high-quality facility provides the physical and technological infrastructure for Wipfli to scale up its operations in the near future.
“Wipfli first started its India operations in 2004 through its SpiderLogic subsidiary in Pune and has since steadily expanded its India presence both in numbers and capabilities. Wipfli’s India team currently consists of technology, accounting and finance specialists and we are aggressively looking to add highly skilled talent that provides support to a full spectrum of Wipfli U.S. clients”, said Sumanth Padival, head of India operations. “For the last several years we have continued to make investments that provide our employees with increased synergy, knowledge sharing, and optimal value add to both internal and client relationships.
“India is an integral part of Wipfli’s future plans and growth strategy. Across the U.S. there is a war for talent and hiring remains a significant challenge, especially for professional services firms. This U.S. talent war is occurring at the same time as the demand for our services and capabilities by our clients continues to increase. With a highly skilled talent pool, our employees in India are critical in helping to deliver both advanced technology solutions as well as finance, accounting, and tax services.” said Kurt Gresens, Managing Partner. “In addition to that, India also offers Wipfli a strong ecosystem of service and technology partners that enable us to do more for our clients, which in turn will support and enable our growth.”
With more than 2,600 associates and 50 offices — plus more than 100,000 clients — Wipfli ranks among the top 20 accounting and consulting firms in the nation. Business today is more fluid than ever.
