    He, however, said inflation in the US, supply chain challenges like the ones on semiconductors faced by the automotive industry and the Omicron variant's setbacks are the things that need to be watched in the new year. On the profitability front, it reported a dip in operating profit margin at 17.9 percent as against 20.6 percent in the year-ago period, which was attributed by Jalona to two rounds of pay hikes to the staff during the year.
    Jalona said the company aspires to keep the net income margin, which widened to 14.8 percent, between 14-15 percent going forward. It also hired over 1,200 people on a net basis during the quarter to take its overall employee strength to 44,200, and will continue hiring as the business grows, he said.


    He added that the attrition, which shot up to 22.5 percent as demand for talent soared, will also come down. Jalona said the challenges on the talent front are being experienced across the industry and will continue for up to a year more, as the pressure to capture business growth mounts.
    The company booked 66 percent of its revenue from North America, making it the largest geography; while on the verticals, the banking and financial services category was the highest with a 32.8 percent contribution. It reported a huge 45.1 percent growth in domestic revenue and the country now contributes about 10 per cent to the overall topline (revenue).
    The company's shares on Wednesday fell 2.60 per cent to close at Rs 6,692.40 apiece on the BSE.
