The Pune-based company had reported a 68 per cent growth in its June quarter net at Rs 151.2 crore late on Thursday.
Its chief executive Sandeep Kalra said typically a fresher is trained for six months before being put on a project.
Sapre said in the last three quarters, it has hired 4,200 people, which included 3,500 lateral hires, and added that the fresher to lateral hires ratio will not be the same any more.
Kalra said sequential pressures are being observed on the attrition front as it happens whenever the business environment is good in the sector. “There will be pressure on the talent side,” he said.
The company had 14,904 employees as of June 2021 — 37 per cent higher than the same base in the year-ago period.
Sapre said all the employees will be given out their yearly hikes from July onwards, which will put a pressure of up to 2.70 per cent on the profit margins. However, a variety of levers will be deployed to minimize the impact to 0.75-1 per cent, he added.
The company is targeting to improve utilization, which stood at 78 per cent on a blended basis, by 2 percentage points through a variety of initiatives over the next two quarters, Sapre said.
During the June quarter, the profit margins declined because of the visa filing related costs and a one-time impairment hit, Sapre said, adding that both the factors will not be there going forward.
He added that it has applied for H1-B visas to send senior resources to the US, which accounts for 80 per cent of its revenues, looking at the business improvement and also as an attrition controlling measure where a staff member’s career trajectory is uplifted.
The company scrip was trading 6.86 per cent up at Rs 3,023.35 apiece on the BSE as against gains of 0.36 per cent on the benchmark.
