Nostalgia? Yes. Sad? No. Love? Definitely! Those are my emotions in a nutshell as I left Infosys earlier this month after a little over nine years of an enriching experience. It is undoubtedly a unique company and its genuine, kind, intelligent people make it all the more special; as you grow with Infosys, there is no other way but to fall in love with it!

Three things that I will continue to love about Infosys:

  1. Powered by Intellect, Driven by Values. This is one of the best corporate taglines I have seen. Still, nothing summarizes Infosys better than this!
  2. Once an Infoscion, always an Infoscion. One realizes the power of these words only when one becomes an ex-Infoscion. 🙂
  3. People. Infosys is a microcosm with all kinds of people and experiences, and the good ones are always in the majority. 🙂

As I move forward, I must say my journey with Infosys has been fantastic! In this journey, I made lots of friends, traveled through lots of curves and straight roads, and achieved several professional and personal milestones in the scenic landscapes and beautiful infrastructure of Infosys campuses. It is indeed incredible Infosys!

Here’s wishing all my friends and leaders at Infosys a great time ahead. 🙂

Thank you, Infosys!

Freedom to Work is One of the Best Motivators at a Workplace

Freedom to Work is One of the Best Motivators at a Workplace


Freedom to operate or function at work is one of the best motivators for most people to not only perform well, but also to stay with a company for a longer duration. Do you agree? Do share your comments. I would be happy to read what you have to say about this topic.

I met a friend this evening over tea and we ended up discussing how different countries encourage different workplace cultures. We both talked about how freedom from a restrictive workplace culture —  such as an organization’s expectation of you to work for a set number of hours, the limitation to allow you to work from the location of your choice, the environment that demands you to be always available for work  —  can be so important to a person’s aspirations to perform well and to do good. A trusting environment not only ensures the workforce feels respected, but also that they feel more inclined to be loyal to the business that is helping them lead a good quality of life.

Companies that allow trust and empathy to thrive will certainly attract better talent than the organizations that encourage control.

There are companies which are progressive and change with the times to offer the new workforce an environment that helps them to express more, do better, and work passionately. We need more such workplaces. Life is short and precious  —  let everyone enjoy their share : )
