Infosys gets a new Head of HR–Too late or a knee jerk reaction

Infosys replaces Nandita Gurjar as the head of HRD from 1st of April with Srikantan Moorthy who was previously the head of Education and Research. Both have swapped the roles. I feel this is a decision taken too late given the degrading policies that came in effect at Infosys in the year 2008.

Being the head of HR and coming from a BPO unit, Nandita had made radical changes to the org-wide policies which had led to an all time high attrition at Infosys. People who had been working as Project Managers were over night reclassified as Technology Leads, Delivery Managers became Project Managers etc. However, this change in the leadership has been attributed to supposedly the way she handled the Visa issue that Infosys was embroiled in. I disagree. Nandita’s head had been wanted since a long time. I now only wonder what Srikantan Moorthy would do once he gets there. He is relatively unheard of by me. I can only hope he does what is best for the company. Not what is against the employee friendliness.

Wishing Nandita and Srikantan a bright future ahead!

If you are reading this from Infosys and want to sue me, go ahead. These are my views and I stand by them!
