For Krish Shankar, executive vice-president & group head of human resource (HR) development at Infosys, the defining moment of the pandemic on the HR department has been the importance that reskilling and learning have managed to get.
For Infosys, the focus on reskilling started three to four years back as business saw a shift towards digital, and the pandemic has really brought the importance of reskilling to the fore. “In the past, certification courses or taking up an e-learning course was just a way towards promotion, and was not taken too seriously. That has been changing in the last 2-3 years, and the pandemic has accelerated this trend. Today, 80 per cent of our people in our new digital businesses are in-house talent,” said Shankar.
