Infosys interim CEO Pravin Rao has said that the company will stay on the course and execute its strategy, despite the turbulence. In a letter addressed to employees, Rao said there is intense attention on the company which can be unsettling. “But only if we let it. And that we must not. If you think about it, this is not the first time Infosys has been up against a tough challenge. Rough economic conditions, near-impossible projects, leadership exits, public debates about our future, we have seen it all. And there hasn’t been a single occasion – not even one – from which we did not emerge stronger, wiser and most importantly still together as one team Infosys,” he stated in the letter released on Tuesday evening. He said that the new services introduced by the company has started to gain traction while automation has made them productive. Rao emphasised on the movements like Zero Distance which have brought in about creative confidence.
“We must all continue the work we do to create the value our clients are counting on us to deliver. It is the huge responsibility we carry. That’s why there can be no disruptions to the work we set out to do every day. As has always been, the foundation for this will continue to be our culture, our values – especially our ability to learn, and do more – much more to create real value – than simply execute the jobs we are handed,” he said.
“We can clearly see the road ahead is long and winding but it leads to greatness. I want for us to stay the course. I know you want it too, for yourself and for your Infosys. That’s why I know I can rely on your continued support. And you in turn can rely on your leadership, and on my personal support,” the interim CEO said.
