Words of some of our employees about the event,
“The event was full of fun spending a happy time with my colleagues! I’ve been working for quite a few years in OCTS. It is actually the first time we have conducted a celebration in the presence of a chief guest like our MLA. It shows our growth over the years. As an outsider to Karaikudi, MLA’s speech has made me think of the future growth we can expect for the IT sector in tier-3 cities like Karaikudi. I’m proud to be working in such a growing company & city” – Chandiran, Translation Team Leader.
