Updated: Indian out-sourcing giant interviews Mayor Marchione

I stumbled upon this 2016 video of Mayor Marchione's interview with the Chief Marketing Officer of HCL, a billion dollar global out-sourcing company headquartered in India.  They are contracting with technology companies like Microsoft to supply Indian labor in the "Innovation Triangle" of Redmond, Kirkland and Bellevue.  In 2011 they opened an office in the Overlake urban center near Microsoft.  You can read more about them and their move to Redmond HERE.

The interview is long but informative with interesting tidbits toward the end. I was  surprised that 40% of Redmond's population is non-native English speaking.
