The investor page of Infosys’ website welcomes you with a quote from its legendary founder, N.R. Narayana Murthy. “Good corporate governance is about maximising shareholder value on a sustainable basis while ensuring fairness to all stakeholders: customers, vendor partners, investors, employees, government and society.” The company is committed to defining, following and practising the highest level of corporate governance across all its business functions. “Integrity and transparency are key to our corporate governance practices and performance…,” Infosys says.
“Most traditional IT services companies are slower to change on account of well-established (albeit dated) services and practices that continue to deliver a large chunk of numbers,” says Sanchit Vir Gogia, Founder and CEO of Greyhound Research, a technology advisory firm.
“Having said that, these companies are also putting their weight behind new-age technologies and investing in skills to build practices that are important to be in line with the changes at the clients’ end. Naturally, this balancing act between traditional services and new-age competencies is no cakewalk… and creative financial techniques are the most natural way out to keep investors at bay while the company quietly develops skills… Think of it like a duck that is paddling hard below the surface while appearing calm above the water,” he adds.
