Infosys will not hire Satyam employees

CEans,

I think this is insane, but ET has reported following statements by top Infosys officials-

“We have asked our recruitment staff not to poach anybody from Satyam. The company is in the middle of a crisis and people will jump ship,”
- TV Mohandas Pai, Infosys Technologies HR, education & research and administration director.

and

We will not touch such a tainted company.
- N R Narayana Murthy, Infosys founder and non-executive chairman.

What's going on? Now, its Infosys's choice whether to hire or not, but don't you think they are assuming that Satyam's employees are equally responsible for the fraud?

That's insane!

What NRN actually said was not regarding the employees. he is quoted here out of context.

He siad "We have no interest in buying Satyam and we will not touch such a tainted company.". this was all about buying the company.

Well the statements have been made for Satyam's good only. If Infosys and other companies will welcome the employees, there would be no one left to support Satyam and all the efforts being done to save it will be wasted. The company has made sure that it will not recruit any Satyam employee in order to discourage them from leaving the company in this hour of need.
Also, on appeal of NASSCOM, Infosys has assurred that they will not poach any of Satyam's clients or customers themselves.

Well the statement came from Infosys only. I haven't came accross any similar statement from TCS or any other company. As of now, none of the Satyam employees have been fired. Though they might be doing efforts searching for another. Thats why there recruitment have been denied.
As of client poaching, they have said they will not approach them themselves, but if the clients on their own offer them, they can't deny!

Isnt that a political statement how can somebody think of doing business with satyam at this moment,moreover,satyam also have to fullfill deals made by Maytas,Infact what Indian ITmajors should do is take clients of satyam and outsource the same to satyam it will help those companie earn some profits and also satyam will have some work and have enough money to take-care of its employees by poaching stayam business is of more loss then recruitig its employess!!!

NASSCOM, the IT controlling institution has been approached to give out a sattement that until and unless the comapny is declared as non functional no other organisatons hould take advantage of the situation by poaching either the employees or the cleints of satyam.

its both good and bad.

let's see

as far as NRN commensta re concerned they were in two different contexts.
hopefully he doento mean as what ahs been intrepretted by media 😀

How it can be bad??? new directors are all proven and time tested,only the workforce has to be motivated and ensured that they are safe!!!

yeah...so much for proven directors. they are also now supporting the raju scam by saying employee count is 53k when IB already unearthed that it was always below 48K range.

I don't know the validity of this news (Infy not hiring Satyam employees), but if its true, it's totally unfair and wrong. R Raju did the scam not the satyam employees. They weren't aware of that. They were as innocent as any other company employees.

What do you say?
