Kris Gopalakrishnan, the former president of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), said that the IT and Software Industry had smoothly managed the transition of the employees to work from home in this quarantine period.  


The IT Industry might operate from home shortly!

The Co-founder of Infosys stated-

“And that was not a trivial task. A large number of people who have to be supported with technology infrastructure to work from home; business processes will have to be changed, with client permission.”

Gopalakrishnan further added to his statement that nearly 90-95% of the employees of top IT firms are now smoothly working from home. The transition is quite effortless and is likely to become part of the industry in the coming future. 

The Chairman of Axilor Ventures said-

“We (India’s IT services companies) are not going back to business as usual,” he said, adding, firms would do a rethink on the office space they would require, and “how we need to deliver services in the future.”

According to Kris Gopalakrishnan, approximately 20-30% of the employees will continue to work from homes even after the situation turns normal.  

The former CEO and Managing Director of Infosys, said that he does not see any future recruitment happening. He also said-

“IT sector does not see large-scale layoffs, they manage to hold on to their employees, but they don’t recruit, they stop recruiting because growth is not there.”
