Solution provider powerhouse World Wide Technology is investing millions this year in hiring more than 1,000 new employees as the $13.4 billion company continues to flourish despite the global COVID pandemic.
“Even during COVID we hired 600 or 700 people last year. We have a budget this year to hire over 1,000 people,” said World Wide Technology CEO Jim Kavanaugh in an interview with CRN. “The last two years we have grown 12 [percent] to 15 percent top line, bottom line which is part of our five-year plan. The largest areas of investment and growth that we’re looking at is around services and those areas would tie to things like software development in our digital portfolios.”
Kavanaugh said WWT will be hiring software engineers, data scientists and management consultants in a move to continue the company’s massive sales momentum. World Wide Technology is looking to also hire new employees to drive artificial intelligence, big data and security revenue.
