Making effective use of the lockdown imposed on the nation, tech. giant Infosys provides a provision for learning new digital skills and certification courses for its employees through a portal of virtual training.
The country-wide lockdown imposition has led companies to explore their innovative sides and come up with different ideas to conduct work on online platforms to ensure productivity and protectionist measures. In such a global environment the Indian IT giant, Infosys Ltd. Has not missed out on the opportunity to introduce the necessity of working from home which has resulted in clear attention towards the need for digital transformation for businesses.
According to Krish Shankar, Executive Vice President & group Human Resource head at Infosys, this feat to essentially conduct digital transformation for businesses, can be attained by reskilling and upskilling employees so that they are equipped to take up new engagements, without any assistance.
The IT giant has seen a significant and upward increase in the number of learners on its learning app ‘Lex’. These statistics have been chronicled to be 22,000 per day from 13,000 primarily. The sheer number of employees partaking in video-based certification assessments has also gone up from about 500 per day to about 1,000 per day post the perils of lockdown. There has been a boosting rise in the number of the people who sign up for the courses and that of those who complete them along with the certified credentials.
Infosys’s student platform focused on college pupils- InfyTQ has also gained traction, where the number of students using the learning and engagement forum rose to 600,000. Enrolled with a zeal to upskill themselves, 130,000 are taking certification assessments. InfyTQ is Infosys’ next-generation learning and training platform. It has helped the company engage and remotely train 1000+ future hires by leveraging internal apps for engagement.
HR head Shankar commented to reveal further information, “It took just about a week to shift the physical training and trainers to the virtual mode. Just like Lex, the Company’s employee collaboration and services platform, InfyMe, is also modular and mobile-first. Both the apps are not only easily scalable but can be accessed anytime anywhere.”
