Infosys not shaken by Japan crisisNews | March 21, 2011 at 3:37 am
People working in the Japan office of Infosys, are supposed to celebrate now as the software company has decided not to shut down it’s Japan office. The company seems to be in high spirits to overcome the effect of the recent devastation in Japan.
The ravage brought about by the tsunami and earthquake has caused massive repatriation of Indian employees working in Infosys, Japan. About 200 or more Indian employees have returned to their homeland and the rest of the staff of Infosys that includes local Japanese have been permitted to work from home or from the Osaka office of Infosys. This seems that the company, by any means will not stop its business as is said in Theatre that the show must go on. As per the recent statement of Infosys COO, Shibulal, the business of the software company will not shut down whatsoever the constraints are. He has clearly stated that the company business process will not be hampered as the employees all over India and also few in Japan will keep working to boost the development of business.
The recent crisis in Japan did not affect much of Infosys which has almost 400 employees working within the boundaries of Japan. The employees have been shifted from the affected area and the impact of the crisis on the company’s business is expected to be 1% of its revenue. However, the company’s CEO seemed a little dubious about the effect of nuclear meltdown over its business. As per the CEO S Gopalakrishnan, it is not the time when the effect can be measured accurately, although the meltdown is supposed to affect the business indirectly.
