“Between the three hubs, we will be somewhere north of 5,500 people, which would represent 15-20 per cent of our global workforce,” said Mohit Kapoor, global chief technology officer at NielsenIQ.

There will be 40 per cent growth in the company’s India workforce post the hiring process. The company also has a separate commercial office in India that services domestic fast-moving consumer goods and retail clients.
