Things are looking up for professional coders in India. Taking after TCS’ initiative to double the salaries of coding professionals, another tech major – Infosys – is preparing to increase its campus-based hiring activities. News is that Infosys wants to extract as much skilled talent as possible for from top engineering colleges across the country – IITs and NITs included – to help build its workforce, and have it populated by digitally skilled individuals.

Last year, Infosys inducted 500 new recruits via campus placements.
The main premise of this strategic initiative is to recognize the top performers after having them undergo a training period. Post-which, Infosys will hire 5 percent of the top candidates, and they will be rewarded with promotions and incentives.
The ‘power programmer’ campaign has benefits for existing employees of the company. Infosys will organize a series of internal coding tests and hackathons, and then shortlist the best-performing existing performers. Once they become ‘power programmers’, they will receive a salary raise.
As part of Infosys’s ‘Digital Tag’ initiative, the company wants to create a pool of skilled employees’ who reflect the organization’s digital readiness. As per the initiative, Infosys will give incentives and benefits to employees who demonstrate proficiency in any of the 32 must-have skills – and four must-have skills – shortlisted by the company.
