Infosys new CEO Vishal Sikka said it was a lifetime opportunity to lead India’s software giant Infosys and that every employee should be ready for the transition that he might initiate at the company.
“To lead Infosys is nothing less than a privilege, and an opportunity of a lifetime. And as I get started on this journey today, I am ready for the transition that must follow. My own,” wrote Sikka in an email sent to employees.
Sikka wanted to augment the next phase chasing software opportunities with clients to create next generation IT solutions, work with the startups, buy intellectual properties, products and platforms to reach new economics and scale.
He said the business will be sustainable if all the employees learn to identify opportunities of the future now, which means some major layoffs are on the cards.
