New Delhi: N R Narayana Murthy, chairman of Infosys, took a tough stand against the employees of the company and said they should either perform or leave and that there was no room for non-performance.
Addressing the Bank of America Meryll Lynch investor conference in Mumbai on Wednesday, Murthy said “Performance is absolutely essential" for the company and that it would provide all the help to people to perform better.
"If for any reason they are not able to perform well then we will have to bid goodbye to them", he was quoted as saying.
In the wake of various senior-level executives exiting the company in the past six months post his return from retirement to head the company once again, Murthy's message - perform or leave - is said to be directed towards the seniors in the company.
However, he assured that there was no turmoil with the exit of senior executives of the company.
"There is absolutely no turmoil... barring some rare exceptions, let me assure you that nobody who was adding value to the company had to leave. That's the reality," he said.
Without naming anyone in particular, Murthy said the company would continue to crack down on non-performers.
