Satyam staff being fed with positive inputs

January 08, 2009 19:20 IST

A Satyam [Get Quote] employee attached to its Pune unit said on Thursday after the initial shock and disbelief, it was 'business as usual' on day two.

"On Wednesday, we kept staring at television sets screaming the news that shook Corporate India. But the subsequent series of mails sent to us by HR and CEO gradually eased the tension," the female IT professional, on the condition of anonymity told PTI.

The management message was crisp and clear. It sought to assure the staff that there was no need to press the panic button as remedial measures were being initiated to restore the company's image and credibility.

"For all of us it should be business as usual," it added.

The Satyam customers too addressed mails to the  employees saying their 'partnership' will last through the tough times, being faced by the world's fourth biggest IT company.

Although shaken, "We are bolstering our spirit with these positive inputs and trying to meet the stringent deadlines of our assignment," she said.

Pune units of Satyam employ about 3,500 IT professionals.
