Employee training? Infosys is world's best

Agencies | July 30, 2004 12:44 IST

The American Society for Training and Development has rated Indian IT major Infosys Technologies Ltd as the world's best in employee training and development.

Praising the training practices at Infosys's Global Business Foundation School, the ASTD gave the 'Excellence in Practice Award 2003' to Infosys.

The award, which recognizes training practices aligned to organizational goals, is a testimony to Infosys' commitment to providing added value to its clients through high quality and trained workforce, said a media release.

The Global Business Foundation School is a structured programme to enhance technical and behavioural competencies of fresh engineering graduates.

The one-year programme at the school readies freshers for the challenging software career ahead of them.

"The spirit of learnability among our people and an organisational commitment to continuous personal and professional development keeps Infosys at the forefront of the fast-changing industry," Infosys' COO Krish Gopalakrishnan said.

"The programme requires participants to integrate technology, methodology, people and process elements. In addition to technical courses, fresh entrants are exposed to courses on communication skills, interpersonal skills, management development and quality systems to absorb the company's corporate culture," said Gopalakrishnan.

M P Ravindra, vice-president and head education & research, GBFS, said: "About 71 percent of all recruits in Infosys during the past three years have been fresh entrants who graduated through this training programme."

This is the second consecutive year that Infosys has won the first annual ASTD BEST Award, which recognises organisations demonstrating enterprise-wide success.
