Infosys has given its employees many reasons to celebrate ahead of the festive season. It is not only giving them promotions, but increments and a special bonus as well. The increments will be in line with what was rolled out in the past — 6 per cent to more than 85 per cent of the workforce.
The Company acknowledges that its workforce makes it resilient, strong and successful. These promotions, hikes and bonus are a way of rewarding the employees for their performance. The staff will receive 100 per cent variable pay as well as a special bonus for Q2. The increments and promotions will be effective from January 1.

In the second quarter, the Company had taken on about 3,000 freshers, and plans to take on 16,500 freshers this year and about 15,000 next year.
