The winners were rated by the candidates themselves across four key data points: a positive overall candidate experience, extremely likely to apply again, extremely likely to refer others, and willingness to increase their business relationship with the employer.

Virtusa recently announced a new talent framework to accelerate team member career progression while delivering value to clients called Engineering IQ. Engineering IQ enables the development of new skills by benchmarking skill level, providing a roadmap for advancement, and taking a final assessment to surpass the benchmark score and qualify to the next proficiency level.
