InfosysNSE -0.35 % has kicked off a talent plan that offers incentives and wage hikes to more than 25,000 midlevel executives — slightly more than a tenth of its workforce — who gain skills in newer digital areas, as the software exporter looks to harness their domain expertise in legacy businesses to quicken growth in digital.
Analysts said the upskilling of midlevel managers is becoming more relevant because companies such as Infosys are forced to take a consultative approach.
“Companies need to have a model wherein there is multi-level of speciality built into a single resource. This is about two things: being future ready and commercial viability of that resource,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, CEO of Greyhound Research.
