What Infosys Top Officials said
Infosys Technologies HR, education & research and administration Director TV Mohandas Pai told Economic Times said, "We have asked our recruitment staff not to poach anybody from Satyam. The company is in the middle of a crisis and people will jump ship,"
Economic times story again says that, "A person familiar with the matter, who asked not to be named, said that Infosys would refrain from even hiring domain experts or project managers from Satyam. Infosys has even advised staff against entertaining calls from Satyam employees."
Reacting to this news item, senior executive said "This particular comment is most unfortunate and uncalled for. From what I know, Satyam's employees are thorough professionals and have an excellent reputation among their clients. The employees should not in any way be held accountable for the actions of the senior management."
He further said, "We are talking about a very real human tragedy, with more than 50,000 IT professionals' careers being on the line. This is not the time for grandstanding or making holier than thou statements, just to draw attention to oneself. Ideally the various large IT companies should work out a strategy whereby the competent professionals currently employed by Satyam can salvage their careers."
