Infosys Onboarded Freshers in Q2
As reported by Parekh, Infosys had given variable pay hikes to its employees during the first quarter.
Even though the IT major had put a halt on new hirings, salary hikes and promotions to save up costs, in April, it did honour all the new job offers and fresher hirings, which were already conducted.
In fact, in the 2nd quarter, from July-September, the company onboarded 20,000 freshers, despite the Covid-19 outbreak.
